Scott is a burner, running a 4.44 in the 40-yard dash. Despite his small frame, he's an electric receiver with lightning speed and solid hands.
Interestingly, he was a running back in high school. In college, Scott transitioned to wide receiver in 2020. Over the 2021 and 2022 seasons, Scott caught 84 passes for 1,419 yards and 14 touchdowns.
He also has a chip on his shoulder. Scott and his family knocked the other 31 team hats off the table during his draft party, posting the comical video on Twitter, too.
