RB Charles Scott Scouting Report

RB Charles Scott, Louisiana State
Pos. Rank: 10 Grade: 3rd Round Height: 5-11 1/2 Weight: 221 40: 4.68 Year: 4-Sr.

The Good: Strong interior running back who picks up the tough yardage. Displays solid running vision, sidesteps defenders in a small area, and shows a burst through the hole. Gets a lot of momentum going when he squares his shoulders and then turns north/south, breaks tackles or picks up a lot of yardage off initial contact. Also displays the ability to weave through traffic and find the running lanes. Rarely brought down by the first defender. Gives effort as a blocker.

The Bad: Lacks the speed and agility to turn the corner. Cannot beat defenders into the open field or run to daylight. Clavicle injury must be checked out.

The Verdict: At the top of his game, Scott is a terrific prospect for a power running offense that prefers to pound the ball on the inside. He offers starting potential if he gets back to health and shows durability.
