Bryan Scott

DB | (0-0, 219) | Penn State
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Played in every game as a freshman and had nine tackles, two passes defensed and an interception. Started six games, including the last five, in 2000 and every game in '01, when he led the team in solo tackles with 62. Had 34-2-1 in 2000 and 82-8-0 in '01. Started all 13 games in '02, making 77-10-4 with two tackles for loss and one forced fumble.

Positives: Good size. Good at reading his keys and coming up in run support. Solid tackler. OK in zone coverage. Tough and physical, good worker who is alert. Plays hard and is competitive. Good hips and feet for his size. Great body and good athletic ability. Has potential to be a press and bump corner.

Negatives: Movement for a cornerback is average. Too big for a cornerback. Lacks flexibility. Stiff in turns and backpedal. Does not have great closing or recovery speed. Not real nifty or sudden. Does not have great catchup speed. Gets beaten at the line of scrimmage too much and can't recover. He could play corner on a team that plays zone or perhaps in a bump-and-run scheme, but he will really struggle playing man.

Summary: Scott is a good zone, cover-2 type of corner who might be better suited to play inside as a strong safety because he lacks the quick-twitch, fluid movements and change-of-direction and recovery speed scouts look for in an NFL cornerback.
