 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Vernon Scott didn't start playing football until his junior year at Mansfield Summit. He gravitated more toward basketball and track. But, once Scott put on the pads, he fell in love with the game. He excelled at it too. Scott was ranked as the No. 11 safety in Texas by the time he finished high school by 247Sports and jumped at an opportunity to play at nearby TCU. With the Horned Frogs, Scott got on the field immediately as a special teams ace and played his way into a starting safety job last season. Now he's headed to the Green Bay Packers, taken in the seventh round of last week's NFL Draft. "What we do is we have a system set up that you can develop guys that are like Vernon," TCU coach Gary Patterson said. "He'd been a track guy and now he's a guy whose best days are ahead of him. He's only going on his sixth year of playing football, period."

For Scott, that's what excites him most about starting his professional career. He has seen himself develop tremendously from his high school days to his college days, and believes that will continue in the NFL. "I've got a great ceiling," Scott said. "I've had great coaches at TCU and I'm sure I'm only going to get better with NFL-caliber coaching." Scott finished last season with 44 tackles, two tackles for loss, seven pass breakups and one interception in 10 starts. He returned his lone interception 98 yards for a pick-six touchdown in TCU's 28-24 loss at Oklahoma. - Fort Worth Star
