Morris impressed with McKissic

Falcons wide receiver J.D. McKissic, an undrafted rookie from Arkansas State, has made an impression on receivers coach Raheem Morris.

“He has gotten here and worked as hard as he can,” Morris said on Wednesday. “He has had his ups and his downs like you expect from most rookies. But he has a nice natural learning curve going for himself and he has been able to move to multiple positions.”

McKissic had 289 catches and 11 touchdowns at receiver. He also offers a lot of flexibility as he can contribute on special teams. McKissic added two more touchdowns as a kick returner.
