Wanya Morris NFL Draft Scouting Report
OT, Oklahoma Sooners
A five-star recruit, Wanya Morris began his career at Tennessee where he was a two-year starter before transferring to Oklahoma ahead of the 2021 season. Morris was a reserve for Oklahoma in 2021 before starting eight games at right tackle in 2022. Morris does have considerable experience at both left and right tackle.
Morris features a well-proportioned frame with long arms and a thick lower half. I like his ability to quick set and rely on his firm anchor and length to absorb power and keep rushers at bay—which also suggests he has some appeal to play guard at the next level. Morris illustrates some physicality in the run game and the power necessary to create some displacement up front. He appears to be a smooth operator with no athletic restrictions. He has some impressive moments getting into space and connecting with moving targets.
Morris needs to find consistency with his performance. He is a streaky player that has too many lapses in technique that stem from a lack of patience. Those moments lead to folding at the waist in pass protection with too much lunging. As a run blocker, he can be too reliant on momentum and not use the ground for leverage, which takes away from his ability to sustain blocks for long enough. There’s no questioning the tools that Morris offers, he just needs consistency in deploying them and executing with more consistent technique and control.
Morris has room to develop and maximize his skill set with the makeup of an NFL starter that potentially has appeal at four positions. The biggest question is if he can find consistency to maximize his potential.
