Morelli was a heralded recruit that was expected to do big things as a Nittany Lion, but it has taken him awhile to make his mark. Playing behind Michael Robinson his first two years held him back, but he did have a solid season as a first year starter last year. He completed just under 54% of his passes for 2,424 yards and 11 touchdowns to eight interceptions. As a senior, Morelli threw for 2,508 yards with a 59% completion percentage and 18 touchdowns to nine interceptions.
Morelli has all the physical tools to be a standout pocket passer at the next level. He has good size, a very good arm, and the ability to sit in the pocket and see the defense. He is capable of making all the throws and showed a lot of improvement as the season went on in terms of leadership.
Morelli also needs to play more disciplined on a consistent basis and not force balls into coverage trying to make the big play. He doesn’t appear to see the entire field all the time and makes some questionable plays.
The talent is there with Morelli, he just needs to be more consistent and disciplined. He had a solid two seasons as a junior and senior, and is worth a shot in the NFL. He will need time to develop, but he is worth taking and developing.
