Darryl Morris (2013 UDFA CB)

Can't Morris be our KR/PR use this kid speed I'm tired of williams he blows

He seems well-suited to be a slot-corner covering Austin. He is probably the fastest player on the team and he's extremely quick.

On KNBR, a statement was made to Whitner that Davis was the fastest on the team, and he replied, "Oh I don't know about that. We have a rookie corner that I think is faster. On kick off returns, he beats everyone, every time, down the field".
at 5-10 190lbs. is this guy big enough to play corner down the line?
Very, very excited about Morris. Already a STs star as a rookie, but I hope his play at CB develops to the level where we don't need to use him on STs as much. If he can become a better corner, Perrish Cox becomes much more expendable.

Hoping for great things to come in the coming seasons for Morris. His play could save us a lot of money on the cap, especially if Brock is retained. I think the 49ers will draft a CB, try to retain Tarell Brown and Brock, and cut Rogers.

Brown, Culliver, Brock, and Morris could be the top 4 on the depth chart next season. They should be prepared because ACL recoveries are not exactly easy.

Verner of the Titans is 5'10, 190 and playing better than any CB in the NFL currently. People need to stop obsessing over size. If Morris has the talent, he'll be fine, regardless of his size.

Yup. Darell Revis is 5-11. Some think that one-inch is the difference between a potential All-Pro and a scrub.

Tarell Brown says yes.
One step at a time folks, its one thing to be a great special teams player... its an entirely different thing to be a starting caliber corner. Size isnt a concern, if you can cover you can play in this league whether you're 5'10 or 6'5. It would be nice for once to temper expectations of a player instead of writing them in as an all pro after a great game.

Love his attitude and style of ST play and that we didnt lose him to the chiefs haha. But lets remember that his buddy even came to the zone and posted on his behalf saying he has a long ways to go with his ball skills and cover skills before being considered as an NFL CB. But as long as that point has been made... god damn its nice to have a speedster on ST again, this team undervalued Colin Jones and his ability to be first down the field on special teams its nice to have that again.

It's usually strength and/or super speed that makes a difference. If a CB can redirect a receiver or stop a receiver from moving them aside they win most battles. Then experience or natural ability to be in the right place creates a Sherman--who sometimes looks like he's playing basketball. D Sanders wasn't the most physical but he was so darn fast and cagey--and he was strong enough! Most incredible DB I've ever seen. Of course, he was also 6'1" and 198 lbs. Revis is 5"11 and 198...fast and strong. And...the ability to anticipate bakes the cake!

We'd use him in the slot, ideally b/c of his first-step quickness and blazing speed. Then we'd use Cooper's 6'2" 195 frame out wide on the bigger WR's that, until Brock, were always out-jumping and towering over (or through) our tiny CB's. Oh wait...never mind.

No, on a serious note, the height certainly helps a ton but technique can be even more critical...why is Brock (5'10" 197) successful? He stays in the hip pocket of the WR, gets his head turned around and plays the BALL (not the receiver's body language). Also, he is good at jumping, timing and making a play on the ball at it's high-point and fights for it through the entirety of the play. These are all issues for Brown and Rogers (and Culliver/Whitner) at time...along with overall quickness and speed.
