Featured Prospects

Selected by: New York Giants
Round: 7
Pick (Overall): 18 (221)

Pick Analysis: Scott won't be expected to do much with Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs in the lineup, but if the Giants lose one of those guys in free agency, look for Scott to fill a need as a change-of-pace guy.

Overview

Scott's a potential change-of-pace reserve running back at the next level. Can be dangerous making defenders miss in the open field after getting by the initial wave. Could also develop into a weapon in the passing game if route-running improves. Not a true burner who will break long runs and will not be able to bounce to the outside as consistently as in college. Lacking as an inside runner, short-yardage and goal line back, and in pass protection. Is not a three-down load back. Scott's natural playmaking abilities should make him a day 3 selection.


Strengths

Scott has good speed and height for the running back position. Good quickness to the hole. Displays good vision running out in space after breaking through the line. Agile, has good moves, and can stop and start without gathering. Flashes the ability to make plays in the passing game. Tough.

Weaknesses

Lacks great bulk and has an injury history. Won't push the pile. Will not break a ton of tackles. Doesn't pick up too many yards after contact. Needs to be more patient. While quick and shifty, doesn't possess true home-run speed to take it the distance. Route-running needs polish and has trouble in pass protection.

Grade

2.8
