Orlando Scandrick (born February 10, 1987) is an American football cornerback for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Cowboys in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He played college football at Boise State.
Scandrick played high school football at Los Alamitos High School as a two way player (wide receiver and cornerback). As a senior he had 52 receptions for 832 yards, 12 touchdowns, 54 tackles, 3 interceptions and 1,024 yards kickoff return yards with a touchdown. At the end of the season he received first-team Long Beach Dream Team and first-team All-Sunset league honors.
He accepted a scholarship to play at Boise State University where he focused on playing cornerback. Before leaving school as a junior, in his career he started 38 of the 39 games, had 152 tackles, 3.5 sacks, five forced fumbles. In 2007 he recorded a school single-season and career record with four blocked kicks (field goals and extra points).
After posting the fourth fastest 40-yard dash (4.32 seconds) at the scouting combine and falling in the 2008 NFL Draft because of probable character problems, the Dallas Cowboys traded that year's fifth and seventh round draft choices to the Seattle Seahawks, in order to move up in the fifth round to draft him. From the start as a rookie, he became the team's nickle back.
