Former Ohio defensive end Tremayne Scott flashed steady development throughout his collegiate career, but was limited to just four games due to a nasty foot injury in 2012.
Scott compiled his best season as a redshirt junior, recording 26 solo tackles, including eight for loss, and also racked up 3.5 sacks to complement two forced fumbles.
Scott checks in at 6'3'' and 253 pounds. He showcased his skills after injury at Ohio's pro day, where he clocked a 5.10-second 40 time, 4.69-second short shuffle and 30.5-inch vertical jump (per NFLDraftScout.com).
He's a developmental project that could excel as a pass-rushing specialist in specific defensive packages. He features relative explosiveness from the point and average technique, but has the potential to improve.
The following is a breakdown of video highlights for Tremayne Scott.
Scott explodes off the edge to sack Kent State quarterback Spencer Keith on the play featured above. He easily blows past a missed block to penetrate the backfield and deny play action from developing.
Scott shakes a last-ditch block attempt from tailback Jacquise Terry before violently ripping the quarterback to the ground, who barely holds on to the football.
This play showcases Scott's tenacious style of game play. His technique can't be critiqued from the featured highlight, though. Scott simply takes advantage of a blown blocking assignment.
In a bizarre sequence of events at the 2012 Independence Bowl, Scott intercepts quarterback Kolton Browning on a seemingly attempted pass deflect, and then fumbles. Teammate Keith Moore scoops up the ball to virtually complete the turnover.
Scott bobbles the football after officially gaining possession, dropping the pigskin to the turf, where Moore swarms in to prevent UL-Monroe from achieving an unconventional turnover recovery.
Scott demonstrates advantageous length on the play featured on this slide. He's not known for pass-coverage ability, but snags a low-thrown attempt to commence a turnover deep in the opponent's territory. The play showcases Scott's uncanny awareness, reading the quarterback to reel in the pick.
Scott explodes off the edge, virtually unblocked, on the play featured above. He violently rips UL-Monroe quarterback Kolton Browning to the turf for a loss of 10 yards.
The result of the play was significant, considering that UL-Monroe was threatening to score with under 20 seconds remaining in the first half.
Scott dropped Browning at the 11-yard line, essentially eliminating an easy opportunity for the opposition to put a dent in the Bobcats' lead at halftime.
Scott's display of awareness and brute force in his final collegiate game was substantial. He performed at a high level, despite a lingering foot injury that hindered his ability to play throughout his redshirt senior season.
Scott was overshadowed by two outstanding walk-on defensive tackles in his senior season. Corey Hasting and Keith Moore dominated up front in the absence of Scott, who had steadily gained accolades after a standout redshirt junior season.
Scott recognizes the polarizing effort set forth by Hasting and Moore, especially as walk-on players.
The tandem combined for 153 total tackles in 2012, rising to the upper echelon of defensive linemen in the MAC while simultaneously leading an efficient Bobcats rush attack to consecutive bowl appearances.
Scott has a ton to prove if selected at the back end of this season's first-year player draft. He sustains potential upside, despite missing most of the 2012 season, but will have to mount an impressive performance in training camp to claim a role on an NFL roster.
Scott was selected to the 2012 Preseason All-MAC Team before suffering a foot injury that crippled his final collegiate season.
The redshirt senior draft prospect is projected to be a late-round selection at best, given uncertainty over injury and a below-average performance at Ohio's pro day. Scott is bulky, but undersized. He needs to add significant body mass to play defensive end at the next level.
His durability is suspect, although he does feature the finesse technique necessary to effectively man his position. Scott became a ghost in 2012 after compiling a successful season as a redshirt junior.
He showed up and performed well in the Independence Bowl, though, a showing that rekindled some degree of draft potential.
