Darryl Morris (2013 UDFA CB)

Mods, should we make this an official thread? Combine in the UDFA thread?
I wonder if Morris ever worked out at SMAC............that's badass gym, really claustrophobic and hopefully you've gotten your tetanus shot before going in there but that place has created some real beasts.

He attended Texas State.



Total NFL Players from Texas State->

Joplo Bartu-Atlanta Falcons Linebacker

Fred Evans Minnesota Vikings Defensive Tackle

Robert Gill Arizona Cardinals Wide Receiver

Ty Nsekhe St. Louis Rams Offensive Tackle




Who, who, who and WHO? :) Exactly.
Interesting point about Morris: Texas State played Louisina Tech this year. Not sure how to see that game, but good chance he covered Quinton Patton. Wasn't a terrible game for Patton, but was one of his weaker ones. ~80 yards and no TDs I believe. Could be where the team noticed this kid

He didn't cover Patton much if at all from what I remember. That was not a brag-worthy game for anyone from either of the defense's, the two teams combined for over 100 points and like 5000 yards of offense.

I'm suprised this guy didnt transfer to one of the bigger Texas schools. (Baylor, Texas, Tech, A&M, SMU, or TCU)
Thiis kid's got some talents that just can't be coached: speed and quickness. And a great jump reach of 36".

With Reid having a 40" jump reach, and this guy, suddenly those "jump ball" passes/hail marys will not be so easy to complete.
I'll wait to see if he makes ps to get excited nice pick up but we have serious competition even on ps.
i hope he takes brocks spot. alot of competition at corner this year
Just watched the whole video, and am I really think we found a real diamond in the rough. He fits this D. FAST AS FUKK!!! Extremely good defending the deep ball, it looks as if he's mastered an over-the-top style of batting balls down. Very tough and don't mind laying a lick. I have to say that with this guy and Marcus Cooper in camp Parrish Cox and Tramaine Brock could be in serious - serious - trouble.

agreed. I like a lot about the kid. Wasn't drafted, and wasn't even a priority free agent. The rest of his tape must not be so good. But the highlights are awesome!

He may have been a priority free agent for us being that we gave him the highest signing bonus of all udfas, 8, 000. Him and the other corner got the same

Exactly...perfect slot CB to cover the likes of Harvin and Austin. Very very quick AND fast and what I like most about him is his decisiveness...he does NOT hesitate the second he diagnoses a play and he appears to thrive on contact/hitting through the WR's.

Exactly what I was thinking! With help over the top from a bigger FS who can also leap, I see this kid giving slot WRs fits.
Maiocco was asked this question recently:

"I've heard a lot about Patton at WR. But I'd like to get some feedback on how prepared he actually is. Route Running, etc. (Daniel McGunnigle)"


Maiocco: "Based on one two-hour practice, the thing that he most needs to improve -- aside from just learning the system -- is his route-running. What makes Michael Crabtree so successful is that every route looks the same at the beginning. Crabtree is able to get deep because, for instance, a slant-and-go looks just like a slant until he turns it upfield. He does not tip anything at the top of a route. Patton looked predictable Friday, and on a couple of deep routes, undrafted rookie cornerback Darryl Morris had no problem keeping up with him."


Thought it's interesting that Morris is still being ignored... plays written off as bad by Patton. Soon people will start to notice the young CB I'm hoping
He seems to run the routes better than the WR's with good anticipation and instincts. Speed is definitely there.
