Chargers receivers: Artavis Scott

It’s always interesting to go back and look at Scott’s career as a member of the Chargers. As a rookie, Scott was hyped as a standout in camp, but was never even given a true opportunity to shine in the preseason. Perhaps it was a slick move by the Chargers to easily keep him on the practice squad, or maybe he wasn’t ready.

2018 looked to be the year Scott would make the roster and possibly even play a role, but an ankle injury ended his season just before the preseason was done. This year, Scott seems to be on the same track as 2018, proving yet again that he can perform and be a solid role player for the offense. Below is one of the couple of highlights involving Scott this preseason. Scott runs a crossing route, cutting across the field once he gets behind the linebackers in what looks to be a Cover 3. Once Scott is able to find that open spot in the zone, Cardale Jones delivers a good football that allows Scott to turn and run.

I can’t think of anybody that doesn’t want to see Scott make the roster. He has shown in each of the last two preseasons that he belongs on a roster in some sort of role, and nobody wants to see Scott be separated from his former teammate out of Clemson, Mike Williams. Scott needs to prove that he can not only be a good backup receiver, but a player that can come in and make a play on offense or special teams. The latter is more important, as keeping Desmond King healthy should be a priority considering the worries in the secondary.
