Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

^ The knocks against him coming out are actually fairly accurate. He's not fast, he's a little stiff in the hips and isn't super elusive. But the things you can't measure or always see on tape is what makes him go. Heart, determination, smarts, etc. If he went anywhere else I kind of doubt he would have had the same success. He's a perfect fit in a Shanahan running game.

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

I think he is more "elusive" than given credit for - Is he going to pull a Barry Sanders'esque "Oh dear God! I didn't know that was physically possible" move? No. At the same time, he had some quickness and flexibilty in the small area. More than once he left a man tackling air on some of his longer runs.

As to lacking bulk, I think scouts completely underestimated or discounted his lower body strength.

Yes. He is a perfect fit in Shanny's system. However, I think he would be a solid back for any team that had decent blocking.
You aren't worth the water in my spit but, maybe, just maybe, you're worth the lead in my shotgun.
