Report: Philadelphia Eagles to work out Arizona quarterback Matt Scott POSTED: Thursday, March 7, 2013, 3:51 PM University of Arizona quarterback Matt Scott worked out for pro scouts Thursday during the school's Pro Day, and the Eagles were not in attendance. And why would they be? They just signed former Tulsa quarterback G.J. Kinne - their fifth passer - earlier in the week. But that doesn't mean Chip Kelly and the Birds aren't interested in Nick Foles' successor at Arizona. According to Daniel Berk of the Arizona Daily Star in Tucson, the Eagles will be the first team to meet with Scott. That meeting is scheduled for Monday. Berk also tweeted that Scott will work out for the Eagles later this month. Scott also said that one of the teams that he has heard from the most is the Eagles. Considering Kelly coached in the same conference - the Pac-12 - maybe there is real interest here and it is not just "due diligence." It would be hard to imagine Kelly was impressed when they faced off last season, however, since Scott threw for three interceptions and no touchdowns as the Ducks beat the Wildcats 49-0. Most outlets, including CBS, project Scott to be a fifth-round pick. ESPN's Todd McShay thinks Scott is one of the best read-option quarterbacks in the draft, behind Florida State's E.J. Manuel and Zac Dysert of Miami (Ohio). If the Eagles are looking to add a quarterback with read-option experience, they may opt to go with someone like Scott, who isn't projected to go as high as Manuel. That would allow for general manager Howie Roseman to address some other areas of weakness like, say, the defensive backfield, in the earlier rounds. Last season, the 22-year-old senior threw for 3,620 yards and 27 touchdowns, while throwing 14 interceptions, for the 8-5 Wildcats. He also added another 506 rushing yards and 6 rushing touchdowns. In the Gildan New Mexico Bowl, Scott passed for 382 yards on 47 attempts, including three touchdowns (plus a rushing touchdown) and two interceptions. Arizona beat New Mexico 49-48, scoring two touchdowns - both short passes by Scott - in the final 49 seconds of the game. Matt Mullin Philly.com Staff
