Overview

Hard charging with necessary grit. Smart linemen who understands his shortcomings and makes the proper adjustments. Climbs to second level blocks with good angles and timing refusing to stay glued to his initial secure block. Uses a balanced pass set and avoids the waist bending and head butting seen from many linemen at point of contact. Uses a well-timed punch and won't show length-limited punch too early in the rep. Good feel for landing accurate initial strike in pass pro or run game. Has some straight-line quickness and can get out into space in screen game.


With the 49th overall pick in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft the Chiefs select C Mitch Morse


Five Things to Know About C Mitch Morse

Possibly the best quality in Mitch Morse is his versatility.

In the matter of his four seasons at local Missouri, Morse played a variety of roles for the Tigers over the course of his career.

In 2011, he played in all 13 games, primarily on the placekicking protection unit. In 2012, he became a starter at center, but then moved out to right tackle as injuries struck the team. In 2013, he continued at right tackle, starting all 14 games at that position. Then, in 2014, with Justin Britt departed to the NFL, he switched to left tackle in 2014.



"He can play all five positions. His versatility is phenomenal."

- General Manager, John Dorsey
