Tyler Scott 2023 NFL Draft Scouting Report
- Finished Second in AAC in yards per catch in 2021
- Three-sport athlete in high school (football, track, and basketball)
- Scheme tendencies: Spread
- 2022 projected role: Big-play vertical receiver who will likely earn his living in the slot
Pros: Tyler Scott is a big-play vertical receiver who can truly stress a defense. He aligns both outside and in the slot and garners a ton of respect via off-coverage due to his speed. He’s a true vertical receiver with the speed to get behind the defense. He is outstanding on go routes and posts/corners utilizing his speed to get vertical. He shows an ability to sell underneath and make corners bite and then take off creating easy separation. He has strong hands and very good ball-tracking ability both over the top and also working his way back to the football. A weapon with the ball in his hands, all he needs is an angle and he can take it the distance. He projects as a strong option as a punt returner.
Cons: Size and three-down value are limiting factors for Tyler Scott. He is short and slight, and that shows up when he is pressed at the line. He gets re-routed during his stem when faced with contact and physicality. He projects as more of a one-trick pony with his vertical speed rather than an every-down receiver who runs the full route tree. I appreciate his toughness and competitiveness, but his slight frame makes breaking tackles very challenging.
