NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah noted Thursday that Scott has teams intrigued. "Buzz is building," Jeremiah tweeted. "According to a good source, he has several private workouts on tap."
Scott's timing is right on the money. This year's crop of passing prospects is widely regarded as mundane, but the free-agent market is equally thin. With Matt Moore off the list, teams are looking at a menu of David Garrard, Jason Campbell and Brady Quinn, among equally bland fare. Chase Daniel is intriguing, but thin pickings could mean a player like Scott goes earlier than expected.
Scott has been praised for his velocity and accuracy. Scouts have talked about his ability to thread the needle and it's clear teams -- every one of them, looking for that diamond in the rough -- wants to find that guy they can pluck closer to the third round than the first. Considering the circumstances, Scott might not last that long.
