At 5’7, 167 classic new balance shoes 574 pounds, former Ole Miss running back Jeff Scott doesn’t have the build of a prototypical NFL running back. But for a team looking for a speedy playmaker who is willing to line up wherever he’s asked, the Miami native says he’s worth a draft pick.

Due to size concerns and an injury-hampered senior season, Scott isn’t expected to hear his name called on draft day. After running for 846 yards and six touchdowns as junior, leg injuries in the back half of his senior season limited him to 493 yards and two touchdowns. When healthy, however, Scott showed electric speed and a propensity for the dramatic. His 75-yard touchdown run in the final minute against Vanderbilt sealed Ole Miss’s opening victory, and his 73-yard punt return against Texas provided the momentum shift the Rebels needed to grab a huge early-season win in Austin.

For a team willing to look past  his dimensions, Scott could prove a dangerous weapon at the next level. He sat down with to discuss his draft preparation, a possible position change and his thoughts on the growing prevalence of spread concepts in the NFL.

Where  are you nowadays? How are you preparing for the draft?

NFL Draft Not just throwing dartsDanny  Kelly •A behind-the-scenes look at the NFL scouting process, and how players ultimately land on each team’s draft board. NFL Draft Not just throwing dartsI’m in Oxford. I’m in school pushing to get my degree. I’m a general studies major and my minor is psychology and criminal justice.

I’m training with my strength and conditioning coach, Paul Jackson. We’re training five days out of the week. I’m basically preparing stuff like my 40 yard dash and vertical jump. Basically just working on what we’ll do on pro day. And I’m meeting with my track coach about twice a week. Everything’s going pretty good. I feel pretty confident.

Do you expect to be drafted?I’m not sure exactly how the draft is going to go. I’m not sure if I’ll go late or go free agent. I just played in the College All Star Bowl a week ago in South Carolina. I had a pretty good game. Right after that game, I was on the way back to Oxford, and I got a call from the Rams. They told me they’d given me a pretty good draft grade.

What do you say to those that believe you’re too small to play in the NFL?I’ve been playing football since I was a kid and I’ve been hearing that all my life. It doesn’t really affect me. I just play my game, you know what I mean? I had a pretty successful career at Ole Miss playing in the SEC. I don’t really pay attention to that when people say I’m undersized because I know I have drive and I have heart. I just use it for motivation. I just go out of my way to work harder and prove that I’m durable and that I can handle it.
