I am not convinced Morris will be exclusively an ST player. He did so well at that last year that they elevated him to the active roster and kept him there, but it wasn't just ST ability that kept him on the team. He was one of the best UDFA prospects out there that I feel had a lot of promise as far as his development. We have developed countless undrafted free agents and I believe he has the talent to be the next one to turn into a contributor.
As far as Gaines, again, it's hard to pinpoint where he'll go but the size and arm length make him a risky player to sit longer on. There's certainly the chance he could fall to the 4th due to the deep CB class and the areas of his game that need development, but barring any unknown medical flags, you are playing roulette in the draft when you sit on a long-armed, 6-0 corner who runs a 4.3 and had flashes of brilliance during his season.
