Chiefs selected Missouri OL Mitch Morse with the No. 49 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
Morse (6'5/305) made 39 starts at Mizzou, seeing action at center and right tackle before protecting the blind side as a senior. Short arms (32 1/4") will likely kick Morse back inside, but he is a terrific athlete with 5.14 speed and a 31-inch vertical. At the Combine, Morse pumped 36 reps on the bench. Tough and tenacious with ideal movement skills, Morse projects well to Kansas City's zone-blocking scheme. He'll likely be given a long look to start at center over Eric Kush, replacing Rodney Hudson. Fri, May 1, 2015 08:43:00 PM

An anonymous NFL scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Missouri OL Mitch Morse is "my sleeper."

"This guy is one tough sucker," he said. "You talk about toughness and tenacity. You grade him and he just blocks his guy. Their left tackle last year (Justin Britt) went to Seattle and started, and there's no comparison between the two. His feet are good enough." The 6-foot-5, 300-pound Morse is tremendously versatile, starting 18 games at RT, 14 at LT and eight at center. "Center is a perfect position," another scout said. "He kind of grows on me. He's not a naturally big guy so he's going to get torqued a little bit. He's got a degree of toughness about him that shows in his play."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Missouri redshirt senior OT Mitch Morse should "go higher than most think," and gives him a fourth-round grade.

"Mitch Morse isn't talked about much but he'll go higher than most think, just like Justin Britt last year. 4th round grade at OT/C," Brugler tweeted. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound Morse earned second Team All-SEC honors in his first season at left tackle for the Tigers. The Missouri prospect initially started at center early in his career, and played at right tackle as well. Morse could add value to his draft stock, with that kind of positional versatility at the next level.

Missouri redshirt senior OT Mitch Morse was unable to participate in the Senior Bowl because of surgery on his left index finger, according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Missouri OT Morse said his Senior Bowl invite was one of the greatest honors. He hated to decline because of surgery on left index finger," Brugler tweeted. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound Morse could be best suited inside at guard at the next level, due to his arm length and lack of functional athleticism.

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."

Missouri starting sophomore C Mitch Morse is expected to return this weekend against Kentucky after missing time with a sprained MCL.

The Missouri offensive line has dealt with injuries all season, but Morse's return bodes well for backup quarterback Corbin Berkstresser, who is slated to start while Jame Franklin recovers from an injury.
