Jonathan Scott OT 6’6 310 Texas
By: Robert Davis
Jonathan Scott is the latest in the Longhorn tackle tradition to be a prime NFL prospect. He moved into the right tackle spot as a freshman and has been a starter since. He shifted over to left tackle as a sophomore, and has remained there the past three years. Scott is a three time All Big 12 honoree, and a two time all american.
Scott is the prototype tackle prospect. He’s tall, athletic, has very long arms, and is strong. He has the athleticism and footwork to play on the left side, and the strength to play the right side. Scott’s arms are very long, which will help him keep defenders at bay in the NFL. There really is not anything he is lacking physically as it projects to the next level.
The only thing Scott may lack is ideal aggressiveness. He’ll be passive at times and won’t finish off blocks. He could dominate all the time if he displayed the constant aggression on the field.
Even with all the tackle talent in this year’s draft, Scott is a lock for the first round. He has all the talent and has had success on the field, and could hear his name called in the Top 10 with impressive workouts. He has as good a shot as anyone to be the second offensive tackle selected, behind D'Brickashaw Ferguson.
