prospects that could contribute to the Redskins"LJ Scott Jimmy Moreland Washington Redskins Jersey , RBSchool: Michigan State | Conference: Big TenCollege Experience: Senior | Age: 22Height / Weight: 6-0 / 227 lbsProjected Draft Status: 4th - 6th roundNFL Comparison: Jordan Howard, RB, Philadelphia Eagles College Statistics Player OverviewThough LJ Scott was unable to reach at least one thousand yards in a season during his career, he still is one of the better backs to come through Michigan State. Scott ranks ninth in school history in yards and carries, 12th in rushing touchdowns, 13th in total touchdowns, and 18th in all-purpose yards. His final season as a Spartan, unfortunately, was injury plagued, only playing five games on the season. As a pro football player Scott is looking to bounce back from a disappointing finish at Michigan State and be an added boost to a teams backfield. Strengths Decisive runner with good burstVery good and quick feet for back of his sizeHas good jump cut near line of scrimmage Jimmy Moreland Washington Redskins Jersey , capable of making first man miss consistentlyVery good pass catcher, and route running is above average for running backWeaknesses Often times does not play up to his size, lacks power for his frame. Issues may become big problems in situational football (goal line or short down and distances).Must improve pad level, struggles getting low and getting extra yardsBall security may be an issue, lost seven of ten career fumbles (2015-2017)Let’s see his work (RB, #3)How he would fit on the RedskinsLJ Scott has the ability to become an immediate impact player, but not in the sense of a power back role. For reasons noted, he has to improve his playing strength in order to become a more respected power runner as a pro. However, he does have quick feet, vision Jimmy Moreland Jersey 2019 , burst, and hands to become a solid role player in the pros. Scott is a back that has the potential to fill in for Chris Thompson down the road if his development continues on the pro level. He has to improve his ability to pass protect, but if Scott can learn the role of a third-down back and grow to play in his frame, he is a back that can compliment Derruis Guice really well as they continue to gain NFL experience. Washington still doesn’t know Alex Smith‘s football future. Case Keenum and Colt McCoy are signed only through 2019. So the team is looking at its long-term situation at the position.That could entail drafting a quarterback.Missouri quarterback Drew Lock visited the team’s facility Wednesday. Duke’s Daniel Jones will follow next week, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.Washington also has scouted Dwayne Haskins, sending a contingent of coaches and executives to Ohio State’s Pro Day last month. Team president Bruce Allen and coach Jay Gruden were among those who made the trip to Columbus.“You can’t reach for the quarterback of the future,” Gruden said last week. “He has to be the right fit and has to fit what you think that quarterback is. If we don鈥檛 feel like as an organization this guy fits that criteria then we can鈥檛 reach and take him just because he鈥檚 a quarterback.”
