You know you're a talented prospect when you have to send teams video of your workout.

I also liked Fehoko's comment at rookie camp about being surprised he was selected so early.

The rest is easy to explain: Cowboys' defensive coordinator likes tall, lengthy cornerbacks and Scott Jr. provides exactly that. The only other two cornerbacks in the class with a longer wingspan were Joey Porter Jr. and Julius Brents, both of whom were drafted within the Top 50 selections.
That's it right there.

But you know who else has a large wingspan? Nahshon Wright.

Ok. Can someone else actually watch that video and tell me how they don’t believe that video is sped up to like 1.2x speed?

I watched it like 5x because I was amazed at his foot speed, but I swear I started noticing some weird stuff with the trees in the background and one car seems to randomly change speeds at the end of one his drills.

If that isn’t doctored, he may be another Darin’s Bland, but man his feet seemed inhumanly fast in the last minute of the video

I only notice one vehicle, a truck and it was only shown for a split second.

Scott lacks agility and fluidity. Translation: He's awful in man coverage. Strictly a zone corner. And the problem w/ that is even in zone, at times a CB is going to have to stick w/ a WR.

Pass.

I didn’t see anything unreal or special either by him or anything else in the video.

2023 NFL Draft Prospect Interview: Eric Scott Jr, DB, University of Southern Mississippi





What stands out about your film the most?

Press man to man coverage and athleticism.


What would a team get in a player like you?

A lockdown specialist/elimination type player.
Yeah, he played a lot of man coverage at USM. Al Harris specifically said that he was used in college much in the same way that he’ll be asked to play coverage in Dallas. He said that most college teams use primarily zone, so you don’t get to watch him play the same way he’ll be used in the pro’s. But Southern Miss played a lot of man coverage so they know that Scott can do it. He said it was good to get a chance to see him play how Dallas will use him.
