Report: Cardinals saw impressive performance from Arizona QB Matt Scott

Could the Arizona Cardinals' next quarterback have played college ball in their own backyard?

According to Tony Pauline, who is a draft analyst and publisher of, the team was in Tucson Thursday for the University of Arizona's pro day and saw an excellent performance from QB Matt Scott.

According to, Scott attempted 85 passes in front of 25 scouts Thursday, and lost the services of number one receiver Dan Buckner, who tweaked his hamstring and did not catch.

Scott started just one full season for the Wildcats -- his senior season -- throwing for 3,620 yards and 27 touchdowns.

The passer has adequate size for the position and above-average speed, and has been on NFL radars since his strong combine last month.

Whether or not he's a fit for Bruce Arians' offense, though, remains to be seen, as the coach has previously said he's not interested in a dual-threat quarterback.
