We had so much fun doing our Countdown to Kickoff series last season that we decided to do it again. If case you’re new to the series, we’ll do a roster preview as we count down the days until the Chicago Bears September 7th season opener against the Buffalo Bills.
Trevor Scott at 6’5″ 256# was the Raiders sixth round choice out of Buffalo back in 2008. Scott started 14 games during his four years with Oakland and had 13 sacks and 55 tackles. In the 2009 season, it looked like Trevor was breaking out when he started six games and had seven sacks and 33 tackles. Unfortunately, he did not follow up in 2010 to that level due to a torn ACL.
In 2011, he played in all 16 games but the results never matched his 2009 season.. In 2012 he was with the Pats and then in 2013 with the Bucs. His performance with those two teams was undistinguishable. Pro personnel people feel if Trevor can get back to his 2009 self he could be a real find for the Bears. He has a high intensity level, a quick first step and gets upfield fast. The challenge for Scott is he a ‘tweener.
With the recent cut of Idonije and thinking that the Bears will be more rotational at DE, it could open a spot if the Bears go with five DE’s. Otherwise, he will have to fight for a play on special teams.
