Jaguars signed Miami QB Stephen Morris.
Morris (6-foot-1 3/4, 213) made 30 starts for the Hurricanes, logging a 17-13 record with a 49:30 TD-to-INT ratio and concerning 57.7 completion rate. He ran 4.63 at the Combine with a 30-inch vertical, showing plus athleticism. Despite pro-caliber arm strength and hand size (10 1/4"), Morris is a maddeningly streaky passer with major accuracy flaws and poor touch. Scouts at the Senior Bowl nicknamed Morris "Tin Cup" for his easy ability to make tough throws, but inability to execute routine ones. Morris is worth a flier, but could be exposed quickly on an NFL practice field. His odds in Jacksonville are helped by the fact that OC Jedd Fisch was Morris' offensive coordinator for two years at Miami. Sun, May 11, 2014 02:39:00 PM

Miami QB Stephen Morris will meet with the Broncos.

"Morris probably wouldn’t become a candidate for the Broncos’ roster unless he fell to the seventh round or undrafted pool," notes the Denver Post. It's possible he'll get there, as Morris' senior campaign earned him an "undraftable" grade from many experts, including Rotoworld's Josh Norris. Denver has 2012 second-rounder Brock Osweiler and 2013 seventh-rounder Zac Dysert behind Peyton Manning.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins are intrigued by Miami QB Stephen Morris.

With a huge 2013, Morris could have shot up draft boards with his big arm and ability to throw the long ball with touch. Unfortunately, he flopped. And then kept flopping, with scouts at the Senior Bowl calling him "Tin Cup" due to his ease at making difficult throws and his struggles with executing routine passes. He may not be drafted, but keep on an eye on the in-state Dolphins and Jaguars in Rounds 6-7. Jacksonville OC Jedd Fisch was Morris' OC for two seasons in college, while the Herald reported Morris has "impressed" several people within the Dolphins.

Scouts referred to Miami QB Stephen Morris as "Tin Cup" at the Senior Bowl due to his ease at making difficult throws and his struggles with executing routine passes.

"Morris boasts a strong arm and throws the deep ball with touch, but like the other two quarterbacks on the North squad (Boyd and Virginia Tech's Logan Thomas), he struggled with accuracy throughout the week," wrote CBS Sports' Rob Rang. Rotoworld's Josh Norris labeled Morris "undraftable" after Senior Bowl week. An up-and-down 2013 season did Morris' pro aspirations no favors, and he has further complicated his situation by struggling at the Senior Bowl exhibition and measuring in at a disappointing 6'1 and 3/4ths of an inch and 208 pounds.

Miami QB Stephen Morris was 10 of 18 for a game-high 89 yards but was also intercepted twice in Saturday's Senior Bowl.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris called Morris "undraftable" in his post-game column, writing that the former Hurricanes QB was "solely a vertical passer."'s Bucky Brooks, another former admirer, was likewise underwhelmed by Morris' performance. "I was disappointed with his lack of accuracy and ball placement. He repeatedly missed open receivers at intermediate range, and tossed a pair of interceptions in the fourth quarter," Brooks wrote.

Miami QB Stephen Morris looked "nothing like an elite quarterback prospect at the Senior Bowl," according to's Bucky Brooks.

Brooks is backing off the prospect after "confidently" boasting about Morris' "talent and potential after seeing him at the Manning Passing Academy this summer." An up-and-down 2013 season did no favors to Morris' draft stock, and he's since struggled at the Senior Bowl exhibition and measured in at a disappointing 6'1 and 3/4ths of an inch and 208 pounds. "Morris struggled with his accuracy and ball placement throughout the day. He also failed to string together completions in 7-on-7 and team drills outside of an occasional check down. I didn't expect Morris to complete every ball with a handful of new receivers, but he was so off with his accuracy that it is an obvious concern for scouts looking for a legitimate prospect at the position," Brooks wrote.

Miami QB Stephen Morris measured in at 6'1 and 3/4ths of an inch and 208 pounds for Senior Bowl week.

Morris lacks consistency, and we doubt he will show anything differently this week. He is only a vertical passer at this point, but Morris' 20 best throws can match almost anyone else's in this class. Morris also measured in with 10 and 1/8 inch hands.

Miami senior QB Stephen Morris completed 12 of 27 attempts for 160 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 36-9 blowout loss against Louisville.

Morris entered this season with plenty of hype, and this game ended an up-and-down season that did no favors to his draft stock. Miami went 0-for-11 on third-down conversions and Morris played his worst game of the season, putting up an 18.2 adjusted QBR rating, according to ESPN, less than half his next-lowest total in 2013. We still like Morris' ability to stretch the field vertically, but the rest of his game will need work to hang around on an NFL roster long-term.

Miami QB Stephen Morris has accepted an invitation to the play in the Senior Bowl.

Morris previously accepted an invite to the East-West Shrine Game and, even though it is possible for him to play in both, we doubt that happens. Morris and Virginia Tech's Logan Thomas earned the final two invitations and join Derek Carr, David Fales, Tajh Boyd, and A.J. McCarron. Eastern Illinois' Jimmy Garoppolo is likely the next man up if one of the six chooses not to attend the event.

Miami senior QB Stephen Morris has accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

It seems like the six Senior Bowl quarterbacks will be A.J. McCarron, Derek Carr, Logan Thomas, Jimmy Garoppolo, Tajh Boyd, and David Fales. Morris has tons of talent and throws one of the best vertical passes in the country, but he struggles with decision making and consistency.

Miami senior QB Stephen Morris completed 17 of 28 attempts for 296 yards and three touchdowns in the school's 41-31 win over Pittsburgh.

Morris displayed one deep ball that was on a rope, which is easily his best throw. If only the rest of his targets to the short and intermediate levels were as consistent. He still holds the "potential" tag in terms of an evaluation.

Miami senior QB Stephen Morris completed 13 of 26 attempts for 214 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the school's 45-26 win over Virginia.

Morris' interception came on a downfield route after trying to fit a pass between a dropping linebacker and closing safety. We love Morris' vertical shots, but he hasn't developed this season or put forth one consistent performance.

Miami senior QB Stephen Morris completed 16-of-28 attempts for 192 passing yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Hurricanes' 41-14 loss against Florida State on Saturday.

Morris continues to confound scouts and fans unlike with his uneven play. Morris hooked up with senior playmaker Allen Hurns on a pair of impressive touchdown throws, but his other 26 attempts vacillated from "ugly" to "acceptable." The senior at times displays breathtaking touch on bucket throws, and at other times attempts breathtakingly reckless passes that hit the chests of defenders. If Morris falls to the middle rounds in May's draft, he's going to make for a fascinating lottery ticket.
Sun, Nov 3, 2013 01:53:00 PM's Albert Breer writes that Miami senior QB Stephen Morris' "lackluster effort" in the Hurricanes' past two games have "raised serious questions about his accuracy."

"Even with Miami unbeaten, Morris hasn't quite lived up to expectations," wrote Breer. Morris completed just 17 of 28 attempts for 191 yards and a touchdown in the Hurricanes' 24-21 win over Wake Forest last week, prompting more criticism from evaluators. Breer writes that some organizations now view Morris as a "mid-round-type."

Miami senior QB Stephen Morris completed 17 of 28 attempts for 191 yards and a touchdown in the Hurricanes 24-21 win over Wake Forest.

Morris has been inconsistent this season, but a turonver-less game could get him back on track. The senior's touchdown pass early in this game was a thing of beauty, hitting a vertical bucket throw in single coverage. That is easily Morris' best area of the field.
