Former Arizona Wildcats quarterback Matt Scott is improving upon his NFL Draft Combine results. At Arizona's Pro Day on Thursday, Scott is arguably doing even more for himself than he did at the combine a few weeks ago.
Matt Scott/QB/Arizona blowing up his pro-day and looking great.Scouts at Arizona pro-day now saying 3rd round a possibility...— Tony Pauline (@TonyPauline) March 7, 2013
That's Tony Pauline of DraftInsider.net on Scott, who leading into the combine was considered a late-round selection. Now, it's a wonder if the new look of rushing quarterbacks in the NFL has helped his fast rise. Despite any injury history for Scott or even that of, say, speedy NFL quarterbacks like Robert Griffin III or Michael Vick, things are a-changing in pro football. That makes Scott a big-time commodity.
Scott helped his own cause in the rushing department by adding weight. It's quite possible he was below 200 pounds at Arizona, but he checked in at the draft combine at 213 pounds.
Matt Scott (Arizona pro day today) intriguing b/c he can move. Good arm + legs = backup potential: Skins, Hawks, 49ers, more.— Chris Sprow (@SprowESPN) March 7, 2013
With former UA quarterbacks coach Frank Scelfo now holding the same position with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the interest there might be the most intriguing for Scott's future, as Adam Stites of Big Cat Country writes. Jacksonville cares enough that they actually sent coaches -- not scouts -- to see Scott.
Additionally, Pauline reports that the Arizona Cardinals are now showing interest considering their own quarterback issues.
Oh, and also at pro day was receiver Dan Buckner. He was apparently putting up some impressive numbers and looked like he was about to put up a blazing 40-yard dash but he pulled up with a leg injury, according to Pauline.
