2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Da'Rel Scott, RB, Maryland

Da'Rel Scott had one extremely productive season at Maryland and the rest were either slowed by injuries or a multitude of talent in the backfield. After redshirting in 2006, Scott saw a little action at running back. He only carried the ball 14 times, but he did average nearly ten yards per carry. His only touchdown as a freshman came on his lone reception of the year. Scott was too quick and talented to leave on the sidelines, so he also returned kickoffs as a freshman.

It was in 2008 when Scott stepped onto the national stage. He carried the load for the Terrapins and ended the year rushing for 1,133 yards on 209 carries. With a workload that large, Scott did not return kickoffs, but that is certainly a skill that he can use in the NFL. In 2009 the injury bug hit. Scott only started five games and carried the ball just 85 times. While Scott was out, Davin Meggett turned into a solid back and in 2010 when Scott returned he had to share carries with Meggett. The emergence of D.J. Adams as a goal line back hurt Scott's numbers even more. In all, Scott rushed 122 times for 686 yards and five touchdowns during his senior season.

Scott has a nice combination of size and speed. He will run the 40 around 4.4 and that should boost his stock a little bit. Scott is also deceptively strong for such a quick player. His lack of consistent production is a major concern and he is likely a late round selection, but Scott has plenty of room to move up with an impressive performance at the East-West Shrine Game and other games and workouts prior to the draft.
