Scott, at only 5-foot-7 and 167 pounds, is a speedy play-maker that dealt with a season littered with injury and poor expectation -- due to his size. As a junior, he ran for 846 yards and six touchdowns but his senior season, slowed by injuries, limitd him to 93 yards rushing.
Earlier this April, Scott chatted with SB Nation.
"I've been playing football since I was a kid and I've been hearing (about his size) all my life," said Scott. "It doesn't really affect me. I just play my game, you know what I mean? I had a pretty successful career at Ole Miss playing in the SEC. I don't really pay attention to that when people say I'm undersized because I know I have drive and I have heart. I just use it for motivation. I just go out of my way to work harder and prove that I'm durable and that I can handle it."
