Running back Charles Scott, drafted in the sixth round in April, has agreed to terms on a four-year deal, the team announced on Wednesday morning. Scott, a product of LSU, was the 200th player taken in April's draft and the Eagles think he has a chance to help the team with his size and his running ability between the tackles.
The 5 feet 11, 238-pound Scott was the 200th overall pick after rushing for 2,317 yards and 32 touchdowns at LSU. In his junior season in 2008, Scott gained first-team all-SEC honors after running for 1,174 yards and 18 touchdowns in 13 games. In 2009, he led the team with 542 yards and 4 touchdowns before missing the final four games with a fractured right clavicle.
Scott is the first of the Eagles' 13 draft picks to agree to contract terms.
