Mississippi State 2013 Impact Player No. 22, Joe Morrow

Stacy Revere

Very few receivers possess the size and speed of Mississippi State's Joe Morrow. If the sophomore receiver can find a way to take advantage of those traits, he may put himself on course to be one of the greatest wide receivers to ever play in Starkville.

When Bulldog fans have talked about the Mississippi State wide receiver group, there may not be a player that has captured the imagination more than Joe Morrow. The 6-4, 210 pound sophomore from Ocean Springs, Mississippi, has all of the physical tools necessary to become a dominate playmaker in the SEC.

Many people thought he might have a breakout season as a freshman in 2012, but his great play in the spring and fall camps never quite materialized on the field once the season started as he finished with five catches. Going into 2013, there are no players listed ahead of Morrow, and no one comes into the season in a position to keep him off the field.

Should Morrow capitalize on the opportunity, Tyler Russell will have his big play receiver to replace Chad Bumphis, and the Bulldogs could build a sustained passing attack. If Morrow misses out on this opportunity in 2013, it will remain to be seen who takes advantage of it and what it will mean for Morrow's promising career.

The pressure will be on Morrow, Jameon Lewis or another young Bulldog to solidify the wide receiver position in 2013.
