TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Former University of Arizona quarterback Matt Scott tweeted Saturday he will sign a free-agent deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars after not being selected in the NFL draft.

The 6-foot-2, 213-pound Scott was projected as a late-round selection after a solid senior season with the Wildcats.

No Arizona or Arizona State players were chosen in the draft, which opened Thursday night and ended Saturday night.

Scott was Nick Foles' backup for three seasons at Arizona, but he got his chance in 2012, throwing for 3,620 yards and 27 touchdowns. He also rushed for 506 yards and six touchdowns.

Eight quarterbacks were drafted Saturday: USC's Matt Barkley (fourth round, Philadelphia Eagles), Syracuse's Ryan Nassib (fourth round, New York Giants), Arkansas' Tyler Wilson (fourth round Oakland Raiders), Oklahoma's Landry Jones (fourth round, Pittsburgh Steelers), Southern Utah's Brad Sorensen (seventh round, San Diego Chargers), Miami of Ohio's Zach Dysert (seventh round, Denver Broncos), South Florida's BJ Daniels (seventh round, San Francisco 49ers) and Duke's Sean Renfree (seventh round, Atlanta Falcons).
