James Morgan comes from a lower-profile program and is an intriguing mid-to-late round prospect. The quarterback’s pocket awareness is outstanding and he has no trouble keeping his eyes downfield under pressure.

He is not afraid to stand in the pocket under pressure and go through his progressions. This can sometimes come with some bad sacks and added experience of knowing when to get rid of the ball is sure to come with time.

What Morgan does need to brush up considerable on is his decision-making. He gives himself the right amount of time consistently. But needs to be better at choosing the right pass.

Morgan has a good balance and moves his feet very well in the pocket. He also has one of the most unusual throwing motions coming out of college this year which sometimes hampers his ability to move the ball down the field.

The player is one of the most enticing development prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft. There is plenty to like about his potential and although he is some way from making an impact on the field, this could happen in time providing Morgan coaches up.

This is the sort of player that the Minnesota Vikings will be looking for later on in the draft. Kirk Cousins will be 35 by the time his contract expires and the franchise will need a contingency plan if he is past his peak.
