Robert Scott Jr. 2023 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Background: 

  • All-ACC Academic Team (2021)
  • Two-year starter

System: 

  • Scheme tendencies: Inside-zone blocking scheme
  • 2022 projected role: Starting LT

Pros: Robert Scott Jr. shows to have good positional versatility. At LT, he shows to have decent feet combined with a physical mentality that makes him an effective run blocker. Scott excels at moving defenders off the line of scrimmage and getting movement to create holes for backs. This leads me to believe that he can also be an effective interior offensive lineman. In the run game, Scott has good instincts and can place effective blocks on multiple defenders. In his pass set, Scott also makes the effort to keep a good base to anchor on defenders who attempt to convert speed to power. Scott appears to be a naturally strong offensive tackle that should see his draft stock rise as he shows the positional versatility he has within his game. 

Cons: Robert Scott Jr. appears to have some lower-body tightness that affects his overall mobility in pass protection. Scott shows that he has the foot quickness to get out quickly to a spot in pass protection but his overall stiffness prevents him from being a reactive player. At times, it is hard for Scott to redirect his momentum to react to counter-moves by edge rushers. Scott also struggles when defenders run a wide arch to get to the quarterback. It appears the lower-body stiffness limits his range and doesn’t allow for him to meet defenders with a deep pass set. Scott shows to be an instinctual offensive lineman that just may have some limitations due to his lower-body stiffness, but I believe that he has the skill set to possibly be an effective guard—which could be a position better suited for him.
