My apologies to LSU's Scott
By ESPN.com staff
As several of you have pointed out (and I need a little guidance from time to time), former LSU running back Charles Scott was selected in the sixth round of the NFL draft last week by the Philadelphia Eagles.
I mistakenly listed him among a group of notable SEC players who went undrafted. My apologies to Scott and to the LSU fans. I promise there was nothing sinister in play here, just an honest mistake. Plus, Scott is truly one of the good guys I've had the pleasure of covering the last few seasons, and his unselfishness and willingness to do anything to help the team win will be an asset for him as he tries to make the Eagles' roster.
Another guy I should have had in that group of undrafted players and didn't was Kentucky linebacker Micah Johnson, who was plagued by a knee injury last season and then sprained his MCL in the bowl game against Clemson. Slow 40-yard dash times hurt Johnson, who wound up signing as a free agent with the New York Giants.
