2010 Scouting Report Presented by Comcast: Scotty McGee, CB, James Madison

Picture via www.todaysaccheadlines.com/

Fittingly, the Jaguars finished their 2010 draft by drafting a small school player on the defensive side of the ball. Although, it is highly doubtful that Gene Smith plucked up McGee for his defensive skills. While at James Madison, McGee was renowned for his dynamic return skills and earned All-American honors on special teams. So for the Jaguars, Scotty McGee is a CB like Brian Witherspoon was a CB. That is to say, he'll likely have 0 impact on defense for the Jaguars.

Not since the days of Reggie Barlow have the Jaguars had a full time kick returner to rely on. Brian Witherspoon looked to fill that role, but he was eventually cut midway through the 2009 season. Earlier in the offseason we debated whether or not it was worth it for the Jaguars to spend a draft pick on a player that would be exclusively returning kicks and clearly the Jaguars scouting department thinks so.

I have been unable to find the 40 time for Scotty McGee anywhere on the internet so I'll leave it to you BCC to try and figure it out. What I did find was a quote from a certainly questionable source. 

Dude ran a 4.31 40 time in the rain in the offseason. He's fast, real fast, but I dont see where he would play. - soccerdude8821 (extremeskins.com message board)

Maybe we'll never know for sure, but we can watch some highlights and get an idea of exactly how fast the newest Jaguar is.

According to the Experts

CDS Draft

Pros

Deadly punt returned and kickoff returner who can come in and make many rosters with that skill set alone. Improving cover corner who has shown progression in terms of technique and recognition every year at J.M.U. Plays bump and run and has the speed to cover his sins. Breaks up a lot of passes. Both quick and fast. One of the top 3-4 return specialists available for the NFL draft. Good kid who works at it.

Cons

Lacks size and nastiness to be much of an enforcer in the run game. Can be beat up and abused by big WRs. May never be more than a dime back, and/but doesn't show consistent hands for the pick. May find that the running lanes close a lot more quickly in the return game at the next level, and is no sure thing for a roster spot even as a returner. Will never be a starting corner for a decent NFL defense.
