CBA Running Back Signs as UDFA with Saints

Prior to Indiana, he was listed as a three-star recruit out of Christian Brothers Academy in Syracuse, New York. Originally, he had committed to Rutgers during his recruitment process. Despite having offers to Minnesota, Syracuse and others, Scott ended up un-committing from Rutgers after plenty of conversations with former Michigan running back Mike Hart.

IU football undrafted free agent tracker: Stevie Scott to Saints

Scott has the requisite size to be an NFL back, measuring at 6-foot, 225 pounds at IU's pro day. His speed just continues to be a question, especially after he recorded a 4.66-second 40-yard dash during the pre-draft process.

In New Orleans, IU's fourth all-time scorer of rushing touchdowns will have to earn a spot with his short-yardage skills, as well as special teams ability.

Scott may have a shot. It wasn't certain until his freshman season at IU whether he would play running back or linebacker so he has the frame to make tackles.

Scott also shows plenty of value in the passing game. He is not the most explosive receiver out of the backfield, but Scott is a reliable check down option who displays soft hands. Scott does a nice job of finding space against soft zone coverage and consistently catches the ball away from his body. he also shows great awareness in pass protection and is not afraid to put his body on the line to protect his quarterback.
