Strong Points

Explosive athlete who is quicker than fast and plays faster than he times. Well built and thick with good play strength. Has a quick release and does a good job avoiding or fighting through jam. Is a strong runner after the catch with good run instincts. Good kickoff returner and one of the better blocking receivers in this draft.

Weak Points

Ran only 4.61 in Indianapolis and then came back to run 4.56 at his Pro Day. Has too many drops and is raw as a route runner. Limited route tree. Small receiving radius. Has some body catches.

The Way We See It

Scott's main value will be as a returner. He lacks the size, speed, hands and route running skills to be a receiver in the rotation. Because of his aggressive style of play he can be a top coverage guy on special teams. Has to develop his route-running skills and hands in order to get much time as a receiver. Can be used on occasional reverses and bubble screens because of his run skills. No more than a fifth receiver but he will dress on Sunday because of his return and special teams traits.
