Ian Scott

SELECTED BY SEATTLE , ROUND 4, PICK 20, OVERALL PICK 116
DT | (6-2, 312, 5.14) | Florida
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Had 14 tackles, two tackles for loss, no sacks, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery as a true freshman in 2000, when he played behind Gerard Warren. Was a coaches' second-team All-Southeastern Conference pick in '01 and started 10-of-11 regular-season games (did not start vs. Marshall) and the Orange Bowl. Had 49 tackles, 10½ for loss, 2½ sacks and five passes broken up. Started all 12 games in which he played in '02 and had 57-7-2-0, recovered one fumble and blocked a kick. Named coaches' second-team All-SEC for the second straight year.

Positives: A one- or two-gap tackle who plays with leverage, can disrupt in the backfield because of his burst off the ball and anticipates and plays the run and pass well. Uses suddenness to get into the backfield but can beat guards with technique as well.

Negatives: Can be beaten at times because he doesn't vary his rush moves enough and gets caught relying on his power moves. Doesn't change directions or fight through traffic as well as you would expect. Has had injury problems and has not displayed great stamina. Was mainly a plugger for Ron Zook at Florida and a player who doesn't come to the NFL with pro-level skills in many areas. Has marginal speed.

Summary: A surprising early entry because he didn't have a great junior season. Scott has to check out medically and have good workout numbers to have a chance in the first two rounds.
