Overall

LJ Scott has all the tools to be a successful running back in the NFL. He is a complete back and could be a workhorse in the pros. His best quality is his patience and how he can explode through a hole when given one. Scott runs very smoothly in between the tackles and sometimes fits through holes leaving you wondering how he did that. His biggest problem is ball security, and he tends to fumble from time to time.  LJ is currently looking to be a mid-second round pick.
