Overview
 
Running back turned safety with eye-popping speed and explosion numbers to counter his limited amount of starts and production at Penn State. Scott is a plus athlete and fierce but erratic tackler whose recognition and technique vs. both the run and pass fall below NFL standards. He's a developmental prospect who will need to play with much greater consistency to make a roster and find the field, but he could make a name for himself as a special teams specialist in time.
 
Strengths
  • Two-time captain and noted team leader
  • Ran a 4.43-second 40-yard dash with 41-inch vertical leap and 10-foot, 8-inch broad jump
  • Explosive burst in his lateral charge
  • Play demeanor is set on aggressive
  • Looking to close in and smack ball carriers
  • Unlocks hips and drives through target as tackler
  • Size and strength to match with tight ends
  • Very good special teams potential
  • Had 19 kick return attempts his first two seasons and can cover them
 
Weaknesses
  • Just one year of production
  • Weight back-loaded in his backpedal
  • Stalls in drive forward out of the top of his drop
  • Sticky hips hinder quickness to flip and run
  • Below-average awareness and instinct from high safety
  • Baited out of position by route stems
  • Inconsistent angles to the football and tackling mechanics
  • Needs better body control and balance in open field
