Scouting Report/Player Notes

Scott is a guy who is really on the rise right now as an NFL prospect. He has a very intriguing skill set including pretty impressive athletic ability and for what he did last year in Rich Rodriguez’s offense, I think a lot of teams in the NFL are thinking he can be a really good player in that pistol type of offense. The jury is still out on this guy, who only had one year as a starter in college and missed the 2011 season entirely, but he’s definitely a player that scouts are interested in right now. A guy who is generating this kind of hype, it wouldn’t be a shock if he rises to the second or third round after not really being on my radar as anything more than a late-round pick.

Career Notes (via Arizona athletics site)

At Arizona: Expected to embrace Arizona’s new offense with a serious plan as a fifth-year senior … Was ready to go every game as emergency option in 2011 but was able to redshirt … Clearly one of the team’s most talented players … Team co-Offensive MVP in 2010 … Remarkable 2-0 record in starts against Washington and UCLA in 2010, filling in for injured Nick Foles, accumulating 688 yards in total offense … Career-best 319 passing yards against the Bruins on career-best 24-for-36 throwing … Logged 18-for-22 vs. Huskies and earned Pac-10 Offensive POW honors … Rushed 19 times for 136 yards, including career-high 12 totes vs. UCLA … Career-long 41-yard pass against UCLA … Finished WSU game after Foles’ injury with 14-for-20 passing … Has a 4-1 record as the starter in his career … In 2009, athletic ability and running skill put him as the No. 1 quarterback after spring ball and fall camp, and started the first three games … Played in five other contests … A winning performance in first collegiate start, completing 19 of 30 for 202 yards against Central Michigan, and was 14-for-20 for 150 yards and a TD against NAU … Rushed for career-high 91 yards on 10 attempts against Washington State, and another 83 yards in opener against the Chippewas … Third on the team in rushing with 309 yards and among the best at 7.5 yards per tote … Had 29 key rushing yards at ASU … As a true freshman in 2008, he led the team with 8.2 yards per rush in flush-out or designed plays, and completed 64 percent of his 11 pass attempts … Scored a pair of rushing TDs (Idaho, WSU) and throwing for another (Idaho) … Was six-for-10 passing for 77 yards and season-high eight carries (48 yards) in the opener, and a high of 58 yards rushing vs. Washington … His rushing total in 2008 was the most for a UA quarterback since Keith Smith ran for 199 yards on 49 attempts in 1998.
