Strengths Weaknesses

Projected as an undrafted free agent, he is also a reliable option as a receiver out of the backfield (77 career catches), but he will need to prove to NFL scouts that he can hold up with his smallish frame.

--Dane Brugler

Player Overview

Although he combined for just 792 rushing yards as a freshman and sophomore, Scott led the Blue Devils' ground attack both seasons. Last year, he struggled with injuries and finished second on the team with 367 rush yards, splitting time with junior Juwan Thompson.

Scott was a top recruit out of North Carolina in 2009 and surprised many when he chose Duke over Georgia, Rutgers and several other prominent East Coast programs. He sat out the first three games of the season while the staff contemplated whether to redshirt him or not.

He has 20 starts over his first three seasons, but has struggled to stay healthy even with a limited workload, averaging only 8.8 carries per game over his career.

Scott is slated to be the starting running back in 2012 for the Blue Devils and has the speed and agility to give the offense a legitimate run threat.

12/27/2012 - Scouting the Duke passing game: This is where the Blue Devils accomplish most of their good deeds on offense, with QB Sean Renfree wrapping up his career in the bowl game. Renfree is a three-year starter and he has several weapons to use in terms of pass catchers. There's record-setting WR Conner Vernon, the ACC's all-time leader in number of receptions and receiving yards. Vernon is a downfield threat, while WR Jamison Crowder has proven to be a play maker with big-time capabilities and he has taken advantage of some of the attention given to Vernon. WR Desmond Scott, a converted running back, fits in well and has been dependable. - The Sports Xchange
