The Cleveland Browns are set to host former Arizona Wildcats star quarterback on a pre-draft visit tomorrow, according to a tweet from draft insider and analyst Tony Pauline. Scott continues to get a lot of buzz due to his arm talent and athleticism, and I think it’s safe to say that Scott is no longer a sleeper in this draft.
Scott would fit Rob Chudzinksi’s vertical offense with his arm strength and athleticism, and Chud wouldn’t mind working with a raw quarterback who has a high amount of potential. After all, Chudzinski worked very closely with Cam Newton as the Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator, and he is a fan of the read option.
It was initially reported that Scott would visit the Browns yesterday back in late March, but Pauline has clarified today that the visit wil take place tomorrow. He has received significant interest around the league from teams looking to add another quarterback, and it seems like the Philadelphia Eagles and Chip Kelly are hot on the former Pac-12 star’s tail. He worked out with the Seattle Seahawks earlier this month, and they are looking for a backup behind Russell Wilson to replace the traded Matt Flynn. The Seahawks already run the read option with Wilson, and Scott has even drawn comparisons to Wilson on account of their athleticism and arm talent.
The issue with Scott is his mechanics, and his technique will need a lot of work from a coach like Chud. But I think he would be a very good addition for the Cleveland Browns. Most people believe that he won’t make it past the third round, and I believe them given the interest Scott has received from teams thus far.
