Anthony Scott: 2022 Pro Prospect Interview
Name: Anthony Scott
School: Davenport University
What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
My Goal was for my team to place top 4 in the GLIAC. I also wanted to keep my streak of no sacks allowed at left tackle. Unfortunately we did not place top 4 but I did not give up a sack at left tackle.
Q: How do you think you took advantage of the extra year of eligibility to increase your chances of going pro?
I definitely have gotten smarter in just how defense works and what schemes allow a offense to be consistent and effective from the 1st to the 4th quarter. As far as the mental aspect I’ve found that any play can work sometimes you just have to adjust your approach.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
My coaches would say I’m the vocal player , a player that plays with an attitude and competitive demeanor. The players would say I’m very competitive and very consistent in doing so. Also adding that I play fast and physical to the whistle.
Q: When you are studying film, what are the things you focus on to improve your game?
First thing you always have to evaluate is did you execute your assignment. No matter how it looks did the job get done. Secondly the technique follows after that. Even though I may have executed a block correctly there’s a way to do it faster or better, it’s just about the finished product for me.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
I think my versatility separates me. At my height and weight I can play against anybody. While also playing every position on the line from left to right. I also believe my ability to adjust before and after the snap is an asset.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
I am currently doing physical therapy at ATI while also training at True Sports in Maryland.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Leadership and honest leadership at that. Im accountable on and off the field. I see myself as a decent human being with a plethora of knowledge gained from years of experience. I think football teams are better with men who bring experience and wisdom.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL and any other pro leagues?
My final pitch would be that I’m versatile and consistent in everything i do. I am not 6’5/6’6 but I do everything the same as any other lineman. While also providing a pillar of leadership. I think having a player who can play all positions at high level is very rare while giving up 0 sacks at Left tackle in one of the best Division 2 Conferences (GLIAC) is impressive.
