Explanation of Player Grading System


Strengths

Plays with a wide base and does a nice job keeping leverage. Handles straight line blocking in the run game well. Plays with a mean streak. Long arms (34 1/8“). Displays some quickness when pulling or getting to the outside/next level on blocks. Good initial punch on the defender and appears to have adequate upper body strength.


Weaknesses

Awareness leaves a lot to be desired. Can be deceived by stunts and doesn’t always pick up the blitz effectively. Foot work is below average for the tackle position. Doesn’t always drive the defender off the ball in the run game. Will reach and lunge.


Analysis

Scott brings a good bit to the table because he can play almost every position on the offensive line. He doesn’t particularly have the footwork to play the left tackle spot, doesn’t have the strength to play the right tackle spot, so one of the guard spots make a lot of sense for him. However, his experience will provide depth at multiple positions for an NFL team, and that alone could help him edge out other linemen.


Experience

Scott is a three year starter for Tennessee. He started his sophomore season at guard and started at left tackle ever since.
