Can be really tough to move off the football inside when run at, keeps his pad level down, generates a surge through his lower half and can overwhelm one-on-on inside. Just lacks the hand violence and suddenness to shed and make a play off his frame.Needs to do a better job extending his arms into contact and getting his hands inside the chest plate of opposing linemen. Too often gets his hands outside their shoulders and fails to control blocks consistently when run at, can be sealed from the action easily on runs off his frame.
Isn't a real impressive pass rusher, gets his pad level upright on contact, isn't real shifty in space and lacks the short-area quickness to side step blocks and make his way up the field.
Impression: Has some natural anchor strength when asked to eat up space inside and moves pretty well for a big guy. Is a limited two down guy at the next level, but should be able to find his way onto an NFL roster either in a 3-4 or 4-3 defense because of it."
Positive: Lumbering lineman with the ability to clog the middle of the field. Shows power in his lower body, gets push up the field, and flashes athleticism. Holds the point and overpowers blockers.
Negative: Tends to get tall and makes himself an easy target for opponents. Ineffective with his hands and does not properly use them to disengage from blocks. Struggles redirecting to ball carriers.
Analysis: Scott showed ability early in his college career but was never able to build upon that momentum and is coming off a disappointing senior season. He possesses the size and power to be a two-gap stopper in the middle of the line, but he needs a lot of work on his game."
