Maybe Kick returner. Sounds like a good value in round 7.

3 things to know about Rams FS Nick Scott

Cameron DaSilva

The Los Angeles Rams spent their second-to-last pick of the 2019 NFL draft on safety Nick Scott out of Penn State, who took an interesting path to the league. He was a high school athlete who played everything from running back to cornerback, and arrived in Happy Valley as a tailback his freshman year.

Here are three things to know about the new Rams safety.

Former running back and cornerback

Scott didn’t go to Penn State as a safety recruit. He played several positions in high school – including quarterback, running back and on defense – and was darn good at every spot. He was a top-100 running back recruit out of high school, scoring 25 total touchdowns as a senior. He rushed for 1,582 yards and threw for 511 yards his final season at Fairfax High School.

When he arrived at Penn State, he was a running back initially. He rushed for 133 yards and a touchdown as a freshman, catching one pass for 4 yards, too. Scott played cornerback as a sophomore before transitioning to safety the following year. He had just one year of starting experience at safety, but it was enough to get him drafted.

Allowed a passer rating of 39.2 last season

Scott may have only been a starter for one season, but he was solid in 2018. According to Pro Football Focus, he allowed a passer rating of just 39.2 when targeted. You don’t have to be a football junkie to know that’s a good number. He picked off three passes and had one pass defensed with a fumble recovery.

Special teams captain

Scott only became a starter in 2018 but he was a contributor for the three years prior. He was a special teams ace and a captain on that squad, even winning the Captain’s Award his senior year.

Special teams coach John Fassel is already a fan of Scott, saying he’s one of his favorite special teams players ever.

This is why I expect the Rams to be really good for a long time. I have never heard of teams drafting for a special teams ace ( not a kicker or long snapper).

Teams has big a big part of our Rams success and it will continue with late round draft picks that contribute. I also expect Dakota Allen and Henderson to play major teams roles.

Fassel has always done such a good job with Teams. I can’t wait to see what he does with this group.

Scott could play key role on special teams

A seventh-round pick out of Penn State, Nick Scott’s official position is listed as safety. But the Rams undoubtedly selected him at No. 243 overall for his special teams skills.

As an important unit that has a high turnover rate simply given the nature of the NFL, Scott has a chance to be a key member of Los Angeles’ special teams group for the next few years.
