 Update

  01/24/18 - Senior Bowl Wednesday: New Mexico State wide receiver Jaleel Scott also had an up-and-down practice, which have illustrated his strengths and weaknesses as a NFL prospect. He has long-striding speed to blow by defensive backs, using his huge catch radius to pluck the ball away from his body. However, his route-running and ability to finish in contested situations were an issue during practice. For a 6-5 receiver who towers over defensive backs, Scott needs to develop his play strength and concentration to win those battles. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

01/08/18 - 2017 ALL-SUN BELT CONFERENCE FIRST TEAM (COACHES/MEDIA): Jaleel Scott (New Mexico State, WR, RS-Sr.),...Three Aggies earned first-team honors in 2017 led by wide receiver Jaleel Scott. The 6-6 wide out was named to the first-team offense after a senior season that saw him tie for the Sun Belt lead with eight touchdowns and 73 receptions. Scott was also second in the league with 1,042 receiving yards and 18th nationally heading into the bowl season.


 Overview

  Although he has resume as a one-year wonder, Scott was impressive in that one season, emerging as a legit NFL prospect as a senior in 2017. He put his name on the NFL radar with his performance (and one-handed touchdown grab) in the 2017 season opener at Arizona State (8/149/2), finishing his final season with 1,079 receiving yards (second-best in the Sun Belt).

A tall, lanky target, Scott has a basketball background, which shows with his flexible athleticism, leaping ability and acrobatic ball skills. He has long-striding speed and surprisingly nimble feet, but he lacks suddenness in his routes and needs to be a more consistent finisher in tight coverage.

BACKGROUND
A standout football and basketball player at Rock Hill (same high school that produced future NFL players like Jadeveon Clowney and Stephon Gilmore), Scott didn’t qualify academically for the FBS-level and went the JUCO route for three seasons, signing with Hutchinson Community College (Kan.) before ending up at Ellsworth Community College (Iowa).

Scott was considered a two-star JUCO recruit and transferred to New Mexico State for the 2016 season. He posted 23 catches for 283 yards and five touchdowns as a junior back-up. Scott had a breakthrough season as a senior (13 starts), leading the team with 76 receptions for 1,079 yards and nine touchdowns to earn First Team All-Sun Belt honors.


 Analysis

  STRENGTHS
Large-framed athlete with a sizeable wingspan. Climbs the ladder with ease. Utilizes his length to create a huge strike zone for the quarterback. Very talented in jump-ball situations. Uses his long arms to scoop passes off his shoelaces. Accustomed to making the acrobatic or one-handed grabs look routine (see 2017 at Arizona State). Light-footed with long, controlled strides in his routes. Balances the sideline well. Collects his feet well in his breaks. Flashes an understanding of head/body fakes to sell defenders and leverage routes. Executes a lot of comebacks, using his body to his advantage. Highly productive senior season, becoming just the sixth player in school history to hit the 1,000-yard receiving mark in a season. – Dane Brugler 2/4/2018

WEAKNESSES
Linear build and looks more like a basketball player. Doesn’t consistently play up to his size. Underpowered and out-physicaled vs. the jam and in contested situations. Tall, unpolished route-runner and still a work-in-progress. Not dynamic after the catch and doesn’t finish up to his size, often giving himself up instead of powering for extra yards. Tentative over the middle and braces for contact. Fastballs get on top of him quickly. His eyes wander and focus wanes at the catch point, leading to drops. Doesn’t always trust his hands, allowing the ball into his body instead of attacking at its earliest point. Unrefined blocker and needs to improve in this area. Character needs investigated – arrested and charged with burglary of a dwelling and theft (Dec. 2013) after stealing books out of a female student’s dorm room. – Dane Brugler 2/4/2018

IN OUR VIEW
Scott has an intriguing blend of height, length and athleticism to out-rebound defenders down the field, but he needs to get stronger and improve his concentration to expand his usefulness and be more than simply a jump-ball weapon in the NFL.


 2017 Season

  Scott finished the regular-season in a tie for the league lead in touchdowns with eight. The 6-6 wide receiver also led the league with 73 receptions and was second in receiving yards (1,042) - which ranked 18th in the nation. Scott also earned 1st Team All-Sun Belt honors.

12/02/17 - Florida State for the 36th straight year - and New Mexico State for the first time in decades? Those two teams are now eligible to play in bowls after victories Saturday. Florida State beat Louisiana-Monroe, and New Mexico State topped South Alabama. There are 81 bowl eligible teams this year and 78 spots, so some teams will be left out. That shouldn't be a concern for Florida State (6-6), which lost coach Jimbo Fisher but is now set to extend its record streak of bowl appearances to 36 seasons. Nebraska had a 35-year streak that ended in the 2004 season. A bowl appearance by New Mexico State (6-6) would be its first since 1960, when it beat Utah State in the Sun Bowl. The Aggies could land in the Arizona Bowl. - AP College Football
