Missouri redshirt senior OT Mitch Morse has "above average initial quickness," "good patience," and "plays with his knees bent," writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.
Morse is an extremely versatile offensive lineman, having begun his career at center. He shifted to right tackle, where he's started the last 17 games, and will now transition to left tackle to replace Seattle Seahawk second-round pick Justin Britt. "Like Britt, Morse is a functional athlete whose strengths are his patience, power and tenacity," Rang wrote. "He is a bit top-heavy and struggled a bit with speed while at right tackle so the transition to left tackle this year may not perfectly. Morse is best suited back at right tackle or even slotted inside at guard where his lack of foot speed is better protected and he can play the physical brand of football that has helped him emerge as a standout, thus far." Rang concludes: "[Morse] is quicker and more balanced dropping back into pass protection than he is pulling or sprinting out to block defenders at the second level." Aug 21 - 7:30 PM
