Jaguars signed Arizona QB Matt Scott.
Scott succeeded Nick Foles at Arizona and excelled in first-year coach Rich Rodriguez's spread-option offense, posting a 27:14 TD-to-INT ratio and 60.3 completion rate in his lone season as a starter. He rushed for six more scores. An intriguing athlete with some explosiveness as a runner, Scott has a long way to go as a passer. Despite strong velocity, his footwork, accuracy, and decision making were all suspect as a Wildcat, and he is very raw. With the quarterback situation so dire in Jacksonville, Scott could see the field as a rookie if he makes the team. Sat, Apr 27, 2013 09:57:00 PM

One NFL regional scout believes Arizona QB Matt Scott is better than Nick Foles.

"He has all the tools, throws a beautiful ball and has a lot of upside," the scout told Dan Pompei. Scott started over Foles in the early parts of his collegiate career, but lost the job and was forced to wait until his senior year to claim the top spot again. Scott could be a second day selection.

Arizona QB Matt Scott will visit the Broncos on April 11.

Scott visited the Browns on Wednesday and previously worked out for the Bills, Eagles, and Seahawks. The Broncos seem to be working out a handful of quarterbacks in the second and third tier, which is a smart move. Otherwise they would be putting all of their future eggs in the basket of Brock Osweiler.

Draft Insider Tony Pauline reports Arizona QB Matt Scott will visit the Cleveland Browns on April 10.

Scott is a raw but talented player that has a strong arm and is mobile, which is likely the two biggest reasons new head coach Rob Chudzinski may be interested in him. Scott is a developmental prospect, however, and needs a lot of work on his technique and mechanics. It's been said that he is rising up draft boards, potentially going in the third-round.

Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports Arizona QB Matt Scott will work out for the Seattle Seahawks.

Pauline added that Scott put on weight since the combine, where he weighed in at 213 pounds. Scott is now 221. Despite his added weight, Scott needs a lot of work on his overall game. He is very raw, as witnessed in his footwork, but has the athleticism and arm strength to 'wow' evaluators.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah doubts that Arizona QB Matt Scott makes it out of the third-round.

"He has several teams interested," Jeremiah tweeted. Almost every team with an obvious quarterback need has putt Scott through a workout, and his athleticism and arm strength likely intrigue a lot of teams. We worry about everything else, including footwork, placement, and decisions under pressure.

Arizona QB Matt Scott will visit the Browns on April 8.

The Browns currently have Brandon Weeden in place to run Rob Chudzinski's vertical passing offense, but we expect the offensive focused head coach to target a younger option at some point in April's draft. Scott only has one full season as a starter under his belt, but he is an athletic mover with a strong arm that needs help putting the tools together to form a complete package.

Arizona QB Matt Scott has "tentative plans" to visit the Buffalo Bills on April 8-9.

This includes dinner on April 8 and a typical visit the following day. A private workout has not been scheduled at this time. As always when discussing the Bills' quarterback need, their ties to Ryan Nassib are strong, but we wouldn't be surprised to see head coach Doug Marrone go in a different direction.

NFL Films' Greg Cosell believes Arizona QB Matt Scott has an "overall similar skill set" to Colin Kaepernick.

Cosell makes sure to point out that Scott is not quite as big or as strong as Kaepernick, but "can do much of what" the 49ers' quarterback does. Buzz continues to build for the 2012 starter, and he might be a day two selection in April's draft.

Arizona QB Matt Scott is visiting the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday.

Scott also has a private workout scheduled in the coming weeks with Eagles' coach Bill Lazor. The Arizona quarterback fits what Chip Kelly likes to do on offense, in terms of athleticism to spread defenses out along with velocity to quickly fit passes into windows. With all the buzz around Scott we expect him to draw a third-round selection.

Arizona QB Matt Scott will visit the Buffalo Bills in the near future.

The Bills have consistently been linked to Ryan Nassib due to new head coach Doug Marrone, but it is possible that another team swipes Nassib away from his former college coach. Scott is certainly generating a lot of buzz during the dead period of the draft process and could be a second day selection.

Arizona QB Matt Scott is drawing "inevitable comparisons" to Russell Wilson, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

Pauline notes that he actually sees more of Colin Kaepernick in Scott's game. "Scouts we spoke with also mentioned how personable Scott was and how he comes across as a leader and quality person," writes Pauline. "The thought process during the workout was Scott had moved himself into the third round... When the day was done a number of coaches were of the opinion Scott could actually sneak into the late part of round two."

Arizona Daily Star reporter Daniel Berk was told Arizona QB Matt Scott will be meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Scott is scheduled to visit the Eagles on Monday and work out for them later this month. Scott also revealed that he has been receiving interest from the San Diego Chargers, Arizona Cardinals and Buffalo Bills, among other teams. Scott has a strong arm and shows good accuracy but is very raw. He needs to improve his mechanics and footwork.

After speaking with NFL coaches, NFL Films' Greg Cosell believes the read option will not be a "big issue" once studied by defensive coaches.

Cosell reiterated that NFL defensive coaches share the sentiment. We believe this might affect the evaluations of Matt Scott and EJ Manuel, two quarterbacks whose evaluations are frequently associated with the read option.

Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said the team is looking for a RB.

"In this league I think you’d like to have more than one back," Jones said. "Obviously we love DeMarco, but you also have to look he’s not been healthy yet in terms of a full season. I think we need a back. We like (Lance) Dunbar and (Phillip) Tanner but I think they’re more third backs, not second backs."
