Former University at Buffalo defensive end Trevor Scott has a strong chance to be the right-side starter for the Oakland Raiders this season. The second-year pro has gotten the majority of snaps with the first-team defense in training camp and started in the Raiders' 31-10 preseason-opening win over the Dallas Cowboys.
The Raiders love Scott's pass-rushing ability. He had 19 sacks in his last two years at UB and added five sacks as a Raiders rookie, including two against former Jets quarterback Brett Favre. The Raiders want to see if Scott can hold up against the run. How he does in that area will determine if he opens the regular season as the starting right defensive end.
