In the 7th round of the 2020 NFL Draft, The Green Bay Packers have selected safety Vernon Scott from TCU.
Standing 6’2″ and weighing 206 according to his player page at TCU, Scott started all ten games he played for the Horned Frogs as a senior. Scott finished last season with 44 tackles, two tackles for loss, seven pass breakups and one interception. His only interception was a pick-six for 98 yards in a loss to eventual Big 12 Champion Oklahoma.
He brings some versatility to the back end of the Packers – mostly playing weak safety but he also has experience playing CB and other safety positions, as well as special teams experience.
Coming out of Texas in high school he was ranked as the no. 11 safety in the state and No. 57 nationally according to 247Sports- picking TCU over Kansas and Air Force.
Scott has been on the Packers radar for a while, as he was scheduled to be a top 30 pre-draft visit with Green Bay before the pandemic struck, which also affected his Pro Day.
