DaRel Scott is an hidden gem: the consumate blend of Power + Speed, DaRel Scott has the Power to blast through tacklers, yet the Speed to make one cut and simply EXPLODE.
MIND you: He is not without concerns. His Lateral Agility and Fluidity are both lacking, and he's had fumbling concerns in the past. But he is actually a very technically adept Runner, which I actually find quite shocking, in conjuction with his exceptional blend of Speed + Power: He runs behind his pads, as Wes Bunting likes to put it, and he runs low. More importantly, he has that rare Gift that many talented Runners lack ~ Patience ~ which not only allows him to make the most of the blocks that his Grizzlies have laid out for him, but makes them more likely to complete them, human nature being what it is. In my experience, great natural tools tend to dilute the cerebral side of most players' Game, and to find a pronounced measure of both, in one player, is pretty damned exciting.
He's a decent Blocker, and shows very good potential as a Receiver.
In my efforts to organize RB's by their styles, I've invented the terms "Smashers", "Slashers", and "Thrashers" as what I hope will be easy references, respectively, to Power Backs, 3rd Down Backs, and Hybrids. "Tail Back" and "Half Back" are used too interchangeably, and in any case, a 3rd term is needed, for there are 3 distinct types.
Be warned: I am all frothy about DaRel Scott. If he gets together with a Line of Grizzlies that consistently opens up decent holes for him, he could be a FORCE. He's projected for the Late Rounds, mostly because he's shared the load, and because he's had injuries and fumbling problems. Well, this student of the Game appears to've obviated those fumbling problems in his senior year, his injuries were freakish, as his running style is a compact one that portends good health, going forward...and his having shared the load is actually a point in his favor, because college miles count as much as Pro miles, baby!!
I call DaRel Scott a Thrasher: His blend of Speed + Power is potentially devastating, and he is most clearly a Threat on the entire Front, both within and without.
As always, the preceding thoughts were regurgitated, derivative tripe, adding no value whatsoever, while in fact obliterating intelligent thought and offending the spirit of all decent men.
