PROS: Sturdy frame and a live arm. There isn't a throw he isn’t capable of making. Can generate the velocity on the football needed to hit deep outs and fit the ball in tight windows. Ball jumps out of his hand. Delivery is quick and efficient. Patient in the pocket but doesn’t take bad sacks. Lets his routes develop and pulls the trigger. Works his progressions and does well to find outlets. Has enough mobility to extend plays and navigate the pocket. Played through a knee injury during his senior season.
CONS: Base can narrow and his inconsistent platform leads to off-target throws. Has general accuracy. Will make so careless decisions, forcing the ball into places it can’t fit. Believes in his arm to a fault. Touch is often missing from his throws and he needs to find a changeup to go with his fastball. Has never been an overly productive passer.
BEST TRAIT - Arm Talent
WORST TRAIT - Decision Making, Touch Throws
RED FLAGS - None
Florida International quarterback James Morgan enters the NFL after starting 37 games in college, 13 at Bowling Green before transferring to FIU and starting 24 games. From a size, mobility and arm talent perspective, Morgan absolutely checks the boxes. He has the makeup of an NFL quarterback and the full playbook is open if he’s pulling the trigger. He shows adequate ability under pressure and works the entire field. With that said, Morgan does have room to improve his accuracy, throwing platform and decision making. In addition, he must find the ability to deliver throws and not dial up a rocket on every attempt. Morgan is a high end developmental quarterback prospect given his physical traits.
