Draft Scout Matt Scott News
06/01/14 - QB Matt Scott was claimed on waivers by the Bengals May 16, one day after being waived by the Jagiars.
08/31/13 - QB Matt Scott was released on Saturday as the Jacksonville Jaguars got down to the league-mandated 53-player roster to start the season.
04/29/13 - Arizona quarterback Matt Scott and Vanderbilt's Jordan Rodgers signed as undrafted free agents with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Scott reunites with Frank Scelfo, who was the quarterbacks coach at Arizona and holds the same position in Jacksonville. He has 30 years' coaching experience. Rodgers doesn't have the arm, athleticism, accuracy or affluence of big brother Aaron. He's a punky pocket passer, much different than Scott -- a hybrid quarterback with wheels but not a sharp ability to needle the ball through tight passing windows. The Jaguars present an opportunity, even if not in the short term, for Scott to carve a niche and potentially win the starting job.
Former first-round pick Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne are splitting first-team reps this summer for the Jaguars. Neither has had sustained success in the NFL. Scott was projected as a third- or fourth-round pick by NFLDraftScout.com. He's 6 feet 3, 213 pounds with a 4.63 40 but showed enough polish at his pro day in Tucson -- on the heels of an eye-opening session at the Scouting Combine -- that many projected he could be selected even higher. This just in -- it wasn't the year of the quarterback. Only three -- EJ Manuel, Geno Smith and Mike Glennon -- were drafted in the first three rounds. - Jeff Reynolds, The Sports Xchange

04/21/13 - ROB RANG'S 2013 NFL DRAFT DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH: Is Matt Scott the next Russell Wilson? ... Matt Scott, Arizona, 6-2, 213, 4.63: A year ago I listed Russell Wilson in this space and it is precisely because of the success that he, Robert Griffin III and 2011 second-round pick Colin Kapernick had a season ago that I anticipate Scott contending for a spot within the first 100 picks of the 2013 draft. Like these three young NFL stars, Scott is a dual-threat at the quarterback position and one who demonstrated touch, velocity and accuracy while throwing five times as many touchdowns as interceptions last season. With only one full season as the starter after backing up Nick Foles, Scott is admittedly a work in progress but one I feel has the upside to warrant developing.
Five Other Quarterbacks to Consider: 1. Colby Cameron, Louisiana Tech, 6-2, 212, 4.71 ... 2. Ryan Griffin, Tulane, 6-4, 216, 4.90* ... 3. Jordan Rodgers, Vanderbilt, 6-2, 202, 4.79* ... 4. Brad Sorensen, Southern Utah, 6-5, 229, 4.93 ... 5. Jeff Tuel, Washington State, 6-3, 218, 4.63 - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
