Future Watch: Boston Scott Rookie Football Cards, Eagles – Boston Scott was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. The 5-6, speedy running back first starred at Louisiana Tech.

In 2016, he played in 14 games and had 70 rushes for 515 yards and six touchdowns. His long was 71 and his yards per carry was a solid 7.4.

He was known as a “sleeper pick” heading into the draft. He was chosen, looked like he made the Saints and was then signed to their practice roster. Enter the Philadelphia Eagles. In 2018, they signed him off the Saints roster in December and never utilized him.
In October, he was promoted to the Eagles active roster. In week six he had four carries for 30 yards. Then seven carries for 32 yards, in a reduced role. Then he played sporadically.
In a do or die game against the New York Giants in week 14, he had 10 carries for 59 yards and a touchdown, including six catches for 69 yards. The Eagles won the game in overtime, Scott got them there, and now their season is alive, and Scott’s career is just beginning.
