The NFL draft is still two months away, but former Arizona Wildcats quarterback Matt Scott helped himself Sunday with a strong showing at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis.
He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.69 seconds - the third-fastest time for quarterbacks behind West Virginia's Geno Smith (4.50) and Florida State's E.J. Manuel (4.65).
Scott was clocked at 3.99 seconds in the 20-yard shuttle, which is believed to be a record at the QB position. His 6.69 in the three-cone drill also was the best for QBs.
Scott, who also had a strong showing throwing the ball, was tied for fourth in the vertical jump, leaping 31 inches. He was third in the broad jump at 118 inches.
Projected as a late-round pick for April's draft, Scott has been working out in San Diego with famed QBs coach George Whitfield. He was the only UA player invited to this year's combine.
