PROSPECT SUMMARY - JORDON SCOTT
Jordon Scott aligns as an IDL for the Ducks' hybrid defense. He aligns mostly at NT in the 0-technique. He is a bit undersized by ideal NFL parameters. However, he has good athleticism, as evidenced in his get-off and agility. He is a shorter player who plays with natural leverage. When his pad level is good his bull rush is effective. He could potentially add value as a rusher in subpackage situations.
Ideal Role: Subpackage rusher.
Scheme Fit: 4-3 defensive scheme or any single-gap system.
