Matt Scott of Arizona to visit with Broncos as prospect at quarterback
Another quarterback is visiting the Broncos. Matt Scott, a read-option type of prospect from the University of Arizona, will visit the Broncos' headquarters Friday. The 6-foot-2, 213-pound Scott was a backup to Nick Foles for three seasons at Arizona, but Scott emerged as a senior last season when he threw for 3,620 yards and 27 touchdowns while also rushing for 506 yards and 11 touchdowns. Initially projected to go somewhere around the fifth round of the NFL draft that begins April 25, Scott might be gaining momentum that could push him into the third. He's had private workouts for Seattle and Philadelphia, both of whom will run the read-option offense. Scott also visited Tuesday with Buffalo and is meeting Wednesday with Cleveland before arriving Thursday in Denver. Earlier this week, the Broncos visited with Miami of Ohio quarterback Zac Dysert, who also is projected as a mid- to late-round pick. The Broncos' interest in adding a No. 3 quarterback behind Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler could mean the team is considering trading back from its No. 28 pick in the first round in hopes of adding an additional pick.
