Yeah I said it. I just got done watching a video of Matt Scott in the Stanford game and he is the best QB prospect in this QB class that I've seen. He has a quick and accurate Marino-like release, great arm, he makes great decisions, he stands strong and delivers in the pocket when about to take a hit, he has great feet. Seriously, why hasn't this kid been talked about around here? After watching his tape and understanding that he got very positive reviews from his combine day, this guy must is the best kept secret from fans and media in this draft. I can't believe that NFL GMs are not noticing him as a potential star NFL QB...




This guy Matt Scott has a Colin Kaepernick-type vibe to him. Great talent who is shrugged off by the experts, but who has a lot of guts and belief in their talents. I see no way that he makes it to the third round pick of the Bills. Why are we talking about bench warmer guys like Barkley and Nassib who have nothing on this kid Matt Scott?

That ball comes out fast, for sure. Passes are crisp, but not always perfect, throws behind the receiver a lot. A LOT of throws to the flat. And he sorta "wings" it a bit--not the best throwing mechanics in the world. Two deep sideline passes in the first four minutes, both pretty decent.

One YouTube video and people are ready to draft someone 3 rounds to high.

He'll never make it through the Analytics Department.

Also, there was nothing special about that performance.

I see why you like him. Honestly this is the first I've heard of him. He will get drafted for sure, but I wouldn't take a guy like him round 2. Kaep had a cannon and was the best athlete in college football IMO. This kid has serious potential but I see 4th round. He needs some work

He'd be perfect here as our receivers have had alot of practice at this!

Won't touch him before the fifth. That being said, in today's NFL hell probably be taken in the fourth a round early.

Chris Brown was talking about this guy right after the combine.  Said that he believe the Bills will not draft a QB in the early rounds, and that Scott could be a target of the Bills in the 4th or 5th round.  He throws a nice ball, has good footwork and a nice compact delivery.  Was praised by scouts at the combine during throwing drills for his "zip" and accuracy on short and intermediate routes.  From what I heard, however, he struggled somewhat throwing deep balls.  Scouts said he was putting too much air under the ball causing the ball to "flutter" and be underthrown.

If the Bills truly do not see a QB worth taking in the top 3 rounds, this might be a good guy to target.  Don't be fooled though...he's not Kaepernick and he's not Russell Wilson.  I think he will end up going in the 4th round.

He seems to go with the play instead of scanning and delivering to the much open reciever, as you can see at times and espeically at 2:14 in this clip!  HE'S A project but has a good tight delivery with a tight spiral but not impressed at all but just my humble opinion and haven't seen much film on him.

i never heard of him, but after watching the video, he looked good, nice release, a little brady-esque, maybe? if they dont reach on nassib, or glennon, etc, i would love him in the 4th.

Wow! Seriously? Scott is 3 inches shorter than Kaepernick...Kaepernick has a better arm, and is a MUCH better athlete over all... Of course Kaepernick is a much better athlete than most QB's...And Pistol Offense or not, Keapernick set records at Nevada...I'm not saying Scott does not have some positive attributes...But Kaepernick-type vibe? No way... B-)

Potentially a mid round project. Not a starter.  Nice to see game tape against a decent team. However a bit like Fitz. Some good TD throws but shame about the ending. We need a QB to get it done at the end of a game. Didn't see many QB runs.
