Pros: Long, lanky build with plenty of room for additional mass. Good use of hands and lateral quickness off the line of scrimmage to get into his route. Can threaten down the seam. Flashes the ability to sink his hips and generate some separation out of his breaks. Flashes courage over the middle to extend and make the tough catch in traffic. Can snatch the ball out of the air. Generally soft hands for the reception and will catch with his body when he is expecting a big hit. Ascending prospect whose best football is still ahead of him.
Cons: Lacks bulk, especially in his upper body. Shows some effort as a run blocker, but is easily discarded by front seven defenders due to his lack of strength. Talented receiver, but is prone to lapses in concentration. Drops some easy passes. Doesn't consistently use his size to his advantage over the middle. Impressive touchdown total more a reflection of defenses' focus on dynamic sophomore running back Jahvid Best.
From "Cameron Morrah Looking Good at Combine" from California Golden Blogs:
Definite power and pop on his blocks -- I've felt that he was a lot better blocker than everyone was saying. I saw that as a bandwagon opinion that people echoed to sound smart about football... Still room for improvement though as it doesn't look natural Edit:Todd McShay agrees with me... Uses quick first step to beat defenders to the spot. Plays with a wide base, stays low and can root defenders off the ball. Takes sound angles to downfield assignments and generally does a nice job of covering up linebackers at the second level... Tenacious and does a tremendous job of finishing blocks. Appears fearless when working the middle of the field.
Scouting Reports and Offsite Links:
- Cameron Morrah came into the 2009 NFL Combine off the radar of most scouts and pundits, but he's sure to have made a blip the last two days with his combine stats.
What hurts Morrah's draft stock is that he is still raw when it comes to his blocking technique. He came to Cal as a four-star defensive end recruit and leaves as a talented, but raw tight end - early. [see more...]
