Post UM QB Stephen Morris on the Dolphins radar
Quote:
The Dolphins had University of Miami quarterback Stephen Morris at their facility last week as one of the "locals" visits they're allowed. Coaches also had dinner with Morris the night before the visit. And it should be noted that general manager Dennis Hickey and coach Joe Philbin attended the University of Miami Pro Day where Morris showed his skills two weeks ago.

Morris, I'm told, has impressed several Dolphins people -- including general manager Dennis Hickey -- with his maturity, intelligence and overall approach.

We faced him several times here at NCSU, so, I was never impressed with him more than a decent college QB. He's short anyways for a pro QB.

Overall Football Traits
Production 3
2010: (6/4) - 82-153-53.6-1,240-7-9 2011: (5/1)  26-37-70.3-283-0-2 2012: (12/12)  245-421-58.2-3,345-21-7 2013: (13/13)  198-344-57.6-3,028-21-12

Height-Weight-Speed 3
Lacks ideal height and bulk combination. Frame is a bit slight and has thin shoulders. Longer arms (32 ¾) and has big hands for the position (10 ¼). Top-end speed and athleticism is above-average.

Durability 3
Injured ankle against North Carolina in 2012 and missed some practice time. Did not participate in 2012 spring drills after undergoing off-season back surgery. Dealt with a lingering right ankle injury for a majority of the season and left the South Florida game in the first half from the injury. Lean frame amplifies concerns about longevity.

Intangibles 2
Two-time team captain as a junior and senior. Mature and handles responsibilities. Fiery leader and not afraid to get into a teammate's face. Hard worker off the field with blue collar mentality. First guy in and last guy out of the building. Loves to compete. Has 18-13 record as a starter, and had an underwhelming 1-6 record against ranked teams throughout his career.

1 = Exceptional2 = Above average3 = Average4 = Below average5 = Marginal


Quarterback Specific Traits
Mental Makeup 4
Ample experience within a pro-style system. At his best when able to work in rhythm and timing. Very efficient off of play action with maximum protection. Does a nice job with his eyes to hold safeties and manipulate coverage. Flashes anticipation as a thrower particularly with intermediate to deep throws. However, pressure is his kryptonite. Game speeds up when pocket gets muddied and decision making can plummet. Will need to improve decision making and ball security to sustain in the NFL.

Accuracy 3
A naturally accurate thrower of the football that flashes the ability to deliver a throw into tight windows from an uneven platform. At his best driving the ball outside the hashes in the intermediate-to-deep levels. However, poor lower body mechanics (not stepping to target) can affect accuracy with routine throws. Issues manifests when facing pressure where he has a tendency to fall away from his throws.

Release/Arm Strength 2
Height is an issue and passes are sometimes tipped at line of scrimmage. However, has a quick over-the-top release and can alter release point to avoid oncoming rushers. Gets set quickly and good follow-through when gets enough space to step into throw. Arm strength is above average and can make all NFL throws. Puts enough zip on passes to squeeze ball into tight windows on short-to-intermediate passes. Can drive the ball downfield when footwork is sound.

Pocket Mobility 3
Above-average foot speed and agility to avoid pressure. A threat to scramble for first down with his feet as a runner. Good feel for edge pressure and will climb pocket while keeping eyes downfield. Just average instincts though and late sensing pressure from backside at times. Would like to see more toughness staring down the gun barrel at times.

1 = Exceptional2 = Above average3 = Average4 = Below average5 = Marginal

He's projected as a 7th - UDFA player, extra arm in camp, maybe PS player..

I would take Fales in the 7th. He's better than he's given credit for.

Quote:
NFL.com's Gil Brandt projects San Jose State QB David Fales as a seventh-round pick to priority undrafted free agent.
The draftnik community was projecting Fales as a possible 2014 first-rounder as recently as last offseason, but he is an undersized (6-foot-1 3/4, 210) prospect without a strong arm and figures to max out as an NFL backup. We do admire Fales' quick release and ability to stand tall in the pocket amid pressure, but he is ultimately a limited talent with sub-par athleticism.
