Draft Scout Player News
07/26/12 - RB Darrell Scott was waived by the Cowboys with the designation failed physical.
07/17/12 - OT Jonathan Scott was released by the Steelers, who re-signed veteran Max Starks earlier this week.
Scott started 14 of the 28 regular-season games he appeared in for Pittsburgh over the past two seasons. He was originally a fifth-round pick by Detroit in 2006.
With rookie Mike Adams expected to compete with Starks on the left side and second-year man Marcus Gilbert scheduled to start at right tackle, the Steelers have bulked up depth along their offensive line during the offseason.
03/21/12 - USF's annual Pro Day for NFL draft hopefuls drew a wide range of NFL personnel, including Patriots coach Bill Belichick, and with running back Darrell Scott as the only Bulls player invited to the league's combine workouts, this was the day USF's seniors had been waiting for. Among those working out at USF's track facility were cornerback Quenton Washington, safety Jerrell Young of Gibbs, guard Jeremiah Warren and center Chaz Hine of Newsome, all trying to work their way into the draft. Scott has been projected as a mid- to low-round pick, and after being limited by a quad injury at the combine, he was able to run Tuesday, though official times were not released by USF. "My main thing was just to have fun. Don't be so tense," Scott said on USF's official site. "When you're tense, you get slower times. I just wanted to come out and have fun." - Greg Auman, Tampabay.com
01/04/12 - USF football has lost its top rusher from 2011, as junior running back Darrell Scott said Tuesday that he will forego his senior season and enter the NFL Draft. Scott rushed for a team-best 814 yards last season, but his best numbers came in September against lighter competition, with all six of his touchdowns coming in wins against Ball State, Florida A&M and UTEP. In eight games against BCS-league competition, Scott did not rush for more than 100 yards in any game and did not score a touchdown. Scott, who played only one season for USF after transferring in from Colorado, is USF's third early-entry draft pick in as many years, following defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul and receiver Carlton Mitchell in 2010. Scott has an NFL body at 6-foot-1, 239 pounds, though he was limited by injuries in Big East play this season. The early departure of Scott means USF will lean heavily on senior Demetris Murray and junior Marcus Shaw in 2012, with the position becoming a major priority in recruiting for the next two seasons. The Bulls also have seldom-used junior Bradley Battles and redshirt freshman Willie Davis as options that will get looks in spring practice. USF coach Skip Holtz addressed the move on Twitter.com, posting a simple "Good Luck Darrell Scott" on his page. - Greg Auman, The Tampa Bay Times
01/04/12 - South Florida running back Darrell Scott is leaving the Bulls with a year of eligibility remaining. "Good Luck Darrell Scott," Bulls coach Skip Holtz tweeted the news first reported by CBSSports.com. The 6-foot-1, 239-pound Scott led the Bills with 814 rushing yards on 153 carries with five touchdowns in 2011, but the move did come as a bit of a surprise after just one season at USF following his transfer from Colorado. He sat out the 2010 season. Scott is rated as the No. 21 running back prospect for the 2013 draft by NFLDraftScout.com. Scott submitted his name to the NFL Advisory Committee, and his jump to the NFL might have been aided by the rise of Demetris Murray, who rushed for 503 yards and eight touchdowns this season. The Bulls also have Marcus Shaw in a fairly deep backfield. Scott has good size and intriguing athleticism. However, he'll also be jumping into a fairly deep pool expected to be available in April's draft, with nine running backs ranked among NFLDraftScout.com's Top 100 potential eligible prospects for 2012. - Derek Harper, The Sports Xchange
