    Stephen Morris’ composure versus Florida’s entire defense

    - There’s a lot to like about Stephen Morris (#17/6’2/215), namely his tendency to move in the pocket and take vertical shots, but he struggled at times against FAU last week. Here’s my extended evaluation on the quarterback.

    - Morris did find some nice windows along the sideline, specifically a touchdown pass to TE Clive Walford (#46/6’4/249), and was let down by on two should be scoring throws by a freshman receiver.

    - I believe interior pressure is more important and causes more disruption than edge pressure, despite the latter drawing far more attention. Few impressed me more than Florida DT Dominique Easley (#2/6’2/295), shifting over from DE, at 1 and 3 technique last week against Toledo. His hands were on the opposition after the ball had only moved an inch, forcing interior blockers back three to five yards. Here’s my extended evaluation.

    - It wasn’t just Easley who impressed, Florida’s entire front four displayed strong and active hands to disrupt the flow of the offense. Redshirt junior LB/DE Ronald Powell (#7/6’4/234) and sophomore DE Dante Fowler (#6/6’3/263) will certainly battle stud RT Seantrel Henderson (#77/6’8/345).

    -Speaking of Henderson, his talent is ridiculous. However, Al Golden insists on rotating in junior Jon Feliciano. Perhaps it is an off-field issue keeping Henderson from starting, but he’s the most talented player on that offensive line. Watch his punch on a few snaps and lateral mobility for such a big body.

    -To quickly run through Florida’s secondary, junior CB Loucheiz Purifoy (#15/6’0/185) gets the attentions, but junior CB Marcus Roberson (#5/6’0/195) might be the better player. Jaylen Watkins (#14/6’0/182) likely has an NFL future.

    - One last note, check out how TE Trey Burton (#8/6’2/225) is used and if his skills project to a Joker/move role in the NFL.

    Can Mack continue last week’s success against another tempo based offense?

    - Buffalo LB Khalil Mack (#46/6’3/248) jumped on to the national stage last week against Ohio State. I won’t attempt to break it down like our own Ross Fulton did, so check out his extensive feature here.
