Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about JAMES MORGAN: Florida International, 6040 229 4.89. Two-year starter, Green Bay, WI. Made 13 starts for Bowling Green in 2016 and 2017 before transferring to Florida International. Excellent leader. Was voted the Pat Tillman Award for leadership during the Shrine Bowl practices. Has a high overhead release with good velocity and accuracy. Poised in the pocket and plays well under pressure. The big classic drop back passer processes information quickly and has the arm talent of a potential NFL starter. Works as hard off the field studying film and opponents as he does on the field. Throws a big time spiral which is easy for the receivers to catch. Can make a flat foot throw with a defender in his face. Knows where all his weapons are. Has a feel for the game mentally and is physically tough. Sets in the pocket and holds the ball high. Moves up in the pocket and steps into his throws. Good timing and placement. He will, however, make a no look screen pass and luck out that the corner dropped an interception. Is accustomed to playing in bad weather with the wind and rain in South Florida. Not a runner. When he does, he has the ball stripped from him at times. Really good at attacking the second level of the defense. Play breaks down when he is pressured off his spot. 2019 stats: 207/357, 2560 yds, 58%, 14 TD, 5 INT, -40 yds rushing, 2 TD, 128.36 QB rating. Ball velocity 54 mph. OSR:14/15. Fourth/fifth round. (A-33 3/8, H-9 7/8, SS-4.64, VJ-29).
