—Sub-30" arm length is a dagger to his draft stock; 29⅜" is the second-shortest of any cornerback evaluated this year.
—Lacks ideal size for anything other than slot duty at 5'9" and 185 pounds.
—Gave up a ton of catches and touchdowns to bigger receivers; doesn't have the size to match up with outside receivers.
—Knee injury limited him to only five games in 2018.
—Will have to improve his subpar tackling before he's trusted to start in the slot.
Scott has the athletic tools teams want from a slot cornerback, where they can cover up his lack of height and length. The key will be letting him thrive on the inside and not asking or expecting him to be an outside cornerback. His fast, feisty style of play should quickly make him a fan favorite.
