Buffalo Bills, Matt Scott planning visit


The Buffalo Bills and former Arizona Wildcats star quarterback Matt Scott were reportedly thinking of getting a future visit done per reports earlier this month, and there is now a tentative visit scheduled between Scott and the Bills. According to John Kryk of the Toronto Sun, the Buffalo Bills and Matt Scott have this tentative visit scheduled for the 8th and 9th of April. Scott will reportedly eat dinner on the 8th with the Bills and have a formal visit on the 9th. Kryk wonders if this will be a private workout.

The Bills are scouring every single quarterback with franchise potential available in the 2013 NFL Draft, and Matt Scott is just the latest one on the list. He has received significant interest from teams like the Philadelphia Eagles, and scouts have been giving him high comparisons to guys like Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick. Scott has the athleticism to successfully run the read option offenses that have become all the rage, and he has some nice arm talent too.

While Scott has some lapses in accuracy and decision-making, he is solid overall and has some nice arm strength to boast of.  He has the accuracy to fit a West Coast offense too, and Scott seems like a scheme versatile player who won’t just be resigned to a read option offense. However, teams will want to be able to take advantage of his athletic ability, and teams are more willing to invest in a quarterback in this draft class who has considerable athletic ability.

    Matt Scott would be a great prospect (higher ceiling than Nassib) and I think he would be available in the second or third round.

    U got it guys! Scott is a steal if we can get him at #41. West Coast hurry up offense that Hackett brings, well here he is gift wrapped! Perfect! We whiffed 3 times on Russell Wilson last year, lets not do it again! Go Buffalo Soilders!
