Fastest RB at Combine falls to 7th round
The New York Giants selected RB Da’Rel Scott out of Maryland in the 7th round of the NFL draft Saturday afternoon. Scott ran in the 4.3 range at the NFL Combine and talking to a scout following his performance in Indy, he said he thought Scott could get some first round looks because of his speed.
Watching Scott on tape he doesn’t have much wiggle to his game and is a bit linear as a runner. However, he does run hard, keeps his pad level down and has a good burst to his game. Overall, he should be able to make a roster and add some solid production as a reserve type back.
