Overview

:

The cannon-armed Morelli never really came around as the savior projected by fans coming out of in-state Penn Hills High School. His play could best be described as inconsistent, putting up big numbers and making great throws in some games and regressing to his poor decision-making past in others. An NFL team will take a chance on him sometime during the draft because he has the physical tools to succeed.

Analysis

Strengths

: Positives: Pocket-passer height and arm strength. ... Can put balls in tight spaces when feet are underneath him. ... Adequate footwork in five- and seven-step drops. ... Most effective when in rhythm, getting good protection and using multiple receivers while not needing to make big plays on his own. Negatives: Not strong in upper or lower body. ... A bit of windup in his delivery. ... Very inconsistent in accuracy. ... Poor mechanics when any pressure arrives. ... Happy feet and throws off back foot, even when there is no pressure. ... Struggles to get past first read -- birddogs that read from the snap. ... Makes some questionable decisions. ... Limited mobility, both running for first downs and moving within the pocket to free himself to make the throw.
