Tremendous package of size (5'11", 205 pounds) and speed (4.34 40-yard
dash), Da'Rel Scott looks to be a burner back to bounce outside at the next level, with a
chance to earn some opportunities in the kick return or special teams.
Lacks natural running instincts, but when he reaches the second level, he is gone as witnessed on
Peaked statistically as a sophomore, when he ran for 1,133 yards. Formed a
committee with Devin Meggett and Adams in 2010, which limited Scott to 686 yards
and five touchdowns in 2010. Ironically, he now joins the team where Meggett's dad, Dave, called home for his best NFL days.
According to NFLDraftBible.com,
Scott has a laundry list of injuries throughout his Terrapin career and has missed a
lot of time as a result. He is not a natural tackle breaker and runs a little too upright
to be able to shed defenders with regularity. He gives good effort in pass protection
but can be overwhelmed by bigger defenders. Scott has blazing top end speed but
doesn’t possess the great stopping/starting ability or lateral quickness indicative of
his top gear.
