2. Tyler Scott, Cincinnati
Tyler Scott is another wide receiver whose stock is soaring heading into the 2023 NFL Draft. Unlike Flowers, however, his stock is going from day three towards day two, as opposed to day two to round one of the draft.
If the Browns like Hyatt and he does go before they pick at 42, Scott would not be a bad consolation prize whatsoever. I haven’t completely finished my wide receiver evaluations, but I may even have Scott higher than Hyatt when it’s all said and done.
If Scott was in the Tennessee offense in the same role as Hyatt this year, I have no doubt that he would have posted nearly identical numbers. Scott has absolutely blinding speed and could set some records at the 2023 NFL Draft Scouting Combine coming up.
Scott uses that speed to create separation down the field and excels with slight nuances in his route running to create big plays for his offense.
To me, Scott has the potential to be a truly dynamic playmaker in the NFL. He’s not just a deep threat, displaying flashes of impressive route running, solid hands, and elite ball carrying and elusiveness in the open field.
He will need to fill out his frame to be an every-down, number one-type receiver in the NFL, but I believe he is capable and will certainly fill the exact role that the Browns need right away. I am confident that Scott is exactly what Cleveland had hoped Anthony Schwartz would be, and although it may be viewed as a slight reach right now, Scott can prove to be worthy of the 42nd pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
