NFL Draft Profile: Mitch Morse -  Jack Peglow | Rock M Nation


Like Justin Britt before him (a common theme here), Morse is an intelligent blocker that adapts well to any situation. Whether that means handling stunts or learning a new position, he has the tools to easily evolve as necessary. His quick out of the blocks, which allows him to beat defensive linemen to the point of attack. He then uses superior balance and a good knee-bend to absorb blows and keep defenders in front of him. Morse also is good about not staying glued to his initial blocking assignment for too long. He can often be seen putting his above average straight-line speed to use as he traverses to the second level. That speed also makes him an asset in the screen game, where he has the ability to catch linebackers by surprise. He fits perfectly in a zone-blocking scheme, as he has both the physical skills and the brain for the system.

Congrats and good luck to you Mitch Morse!
