Arizona QB Matt Scott invited to NFL Combine

USA TODAY Sports

Arizona quarterback Matt Scott's NFL dream will hit the road after Scott received an invitation to the NFL Combine in Indianapolis in February.

In his first year as Arizona Wildcats' starting quarterback, Matt Scott engineered one of the best offenses in the country. The Wildcats finished third in total yardage and 14th in scoring. Scott's individual numbers were just as impressive. The senior finished with 3,620 yards passing, 27 touchdowns and added 506 yards and six touchdowns rushing. According to Ryan Finley of the Arizona Daily Star, Scott's performance this season has earned him an invite to the NFL Combine in February.

There's still a lot to be determined between now and April's draft, but if Scott were drafted, he would be the second Arizona quarterback in a row to have his named called. Nick Foles was taken by the Philadelphia Eagles in the third round of last year's draft. Foles went on to replace Michael Vick as the team's starter for several weeks when Vick suffered a concussion.

Scott's career with the Wildcats finished in explosive fashion as Arizona came from behind to beat the Nevada Wolf Pack 49-48 in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl. Scott passed for 382 yards, three touchdowns and rushed for another score in that game.
