Seahawks Draft Garrett Scott
Scott didn't stop there though. He knew bigger things could be in his future. His hard work paid off this weekend when he was made the 199th overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft by the defending champion Seattle Seahawks. Those who saw him play, and saw how he carried himself both on and off the football field should not be shocked at this honor.
Scott came to Marshall as a two star unranked recruit out of Georgia. Graduating from Coffee County High School in Douglas, Georgia, he entered Marshall with an obvious chip on his shoulder as his offer list was quite thin.
Garrett Scott makes it four straight years that a member of the Thundering Herd has been drafted.
2014 – Garrett Scott – Seattle Seahawks
2013 – Aaron Dobson – New England Patriots
2012 – Vinny Curry – Philadelphia Eagles
2011 – Lee Smith – New England Patriots
Scott starred at left tackle this past season for the Herd protecting the back side of all everything quarterback Rakeem Cato. Marshall has moved Sebastion Johansson over to the left tackle position from his left guard position in hopes that his athleticism will enable him to protect as well as Scott.
Who could be the next Garrett Scott from this years 2014 recruiting class. In other words, what two star offensive lineman could make it to the next level.
There are three really good ones that could come out of this class that were ranked two stars.
Freddie Binot is my pick for the one that is most likely to make it to the next level. Binot is a 6'3", 270 pound true athlete at that position. He has the size and measurable to make it as he develops over the next four to five years.
Jordan Dowrey, a two star center from Virginia simply is a tough kid that does not know how to lose. He finished his junior and senior seasons on the wrestling mat undefeated.
AJ Addision is another two star lineman who is already on campus and got a lot of meaningful reps during spring camp.
