45 in 45: No.11 Aaron Morris

Aaron Morris

Offensive Guard


6’5 360 Lbs.

Jackson, Miss.



2012 Season: After starting six games as a freshman in 2011 Morris started all 13 games for the Rebels last season. An elite high school recruit, Morris lived up to the hype last season earning a Sophomore All-American honorable mention by College Football News. The praise has only grown going into the 2013 campaign as he is a second and third team all-conference by Athlon and the coaches respectfully.


Value: It is well-documented how important it is to protect the quarterback’s blind side. Morris and Emmanuel McCray have 32 total starts on the left side and both have proven to be all that Bo Wallace needs. While McCray, right tackle Pierce Burton and center Evan Swindall are all projected to be undrafted free agents in 2014, Morris could very well be a second or third rounder if he continues to improve. He has a huge frame, quick feet and gets good position with his hands. His worth has been vastly overlooked by Rebels fans but make no mistake, he could be one of the best offensive linemen to come out of Oxford in over a decade.
