Scouting Report
Scott was expected to have a big senior season for LSU, but his final year with the Tigers came to an end after nine games due to a broken collarbone. In 2008, Scott had the 12th 1,000-yard rushing season for an LSU back, running for 1,174 yards and 18 touchdowns - the second-highest total in school history. He ran for 542 yards and four TDs as a senior, giving him 2,317 yards and 32 touchdowns in his career. Scott ranks fourth in rushing touchdowns and seventh in rushing yardage in LSU history. A powerful running back with good size, Scott isn't very quick and performs better as an inside runner than outside runner. He lacks breakaway speed and isn't very elusive, but his bulk enables him to break tackles and gain extra yards. Scott needs to improve in the passing game, having caught 31 balls for 260 yards and three scores in 43 career contests. His injury shouldn't affect his draft status, and some experts have Scott ranked as one of the top 10 running backs available. He could be picked as high as the third round but will likely be taken off the board in the fourth or fifth.
