Da’Rel Scott scouting report

Da’Rel Scott RB Maryland
Ht: 5’11″

Wt: 210

Strengths:
An explosive runner with home-run speed; averaged over five yards per carry for his career. Good overall size. Elite timed speed; clocked at 4.34 at the combine.
Weaknesses:
Slowed by injuries throughout his career. Missed time with an ankle injury in 2007. Suffered a shoulder injury in 2008. Also missed time with a broken arm in 2009. Suspended for violation of team rules (curfew) in 2008. Isn’t a tough between-the-tackles runner; doesn’t use his size as much as he could.
Comments:
When healthy, Scott is an explosive runner who has the frame of a prototypical NFL running back. His measurables and workout numbers are that of a potential starter but his long list of injuries hurt his draft stock considerably. He could be a steal, but he just isn’t worth the risk until the third day of the draft.
