Scott broke out for Cincinnati in 2022, when he caught 54 passes for 899 yards and 9 touchdowns. The speedy deep threat earned second-team All-AAC recognition for his performance, and he played a sizable role for the Bearcats when they made an appearance in the College Football Playoff after the 2021 season.
Having had the chance to speak with Scott, he is not only an electric athlete who can seriously stretch the field, but he’s also a high-character guy with a clear vision to succeed at the NFL level. Chicago added a talented wide receiver who should further boost their offense in an offseason where doing so has been a top priority.
Once Chicago made the pick, I headed to Twitter to put together a thread with a mini scouting report and notable clips regarding Scott.

Scott is explosive as a route runner, but he’s also smart.— Jacob Infante (@jacobinfante24) April 29, 2023
He understands the concept of route leverage well and is able to adjust his stems to attack a DB’s blind spots. #Bears pic.twitter.com/sEJP2OTdQa
