Yas has mentioned that he heard the Panthers are interested in someone who's currently employed by another team but has never been a GM. Who knows how solid his information is, but that could help narrow things down by eliminating former GMs (and, IMO, I think it eliminates DeCosta has he's an "assistant GM" and I think he was a pipe dream anyway).

Which brings up question. I'm pretty sure gm's can not take other jobs til their team is out of the playoffs. IIRC it isn't the same for people under them right?

Correct. If JR has someone in mind who's currently employed, we're going to have to wait until that team's season ends. And I might be assuming here, but I can't imagine it not being someone who's currently with a team that's on track to make the playoffs.

I'm guessing if JR waits into the season is over he could be looking at Player personnel guys from the Packers, Giants, and etc.

Added a video link and a little more info on DeCosta.

The video's worth viewing even though I think we have zero shot at DeCosta.

Beyond the Super Bowls, I just like the way the Giants have been built the past 4/5 seasons. That's why Abrams and Ross seem like very intriguing options.

I also like Will Lewis and who he's brought in out in Seattle.

Will Lewis left Seattle last offseason, but I also like how Seattle was built. That secondary is just sick good, they've got a nice pass rush, and they seem to be getting good production out of WR's that most weren't very high on (in fairness, that may be coaching more than talent evaluation). I'm not a huge Russell Wilson fan yet and think it's likely that they are looking for a QB again in a year or two, but it is still a well-built young team overall.

While Lewis may not be a legitimate candidate, if I were a talent evaluator, the Hawks are one of the teams I'd look at for benchmarking purposes.

I want to find out more about that story. Only did a cursory search so far but wasn't able to find much in the way of real info as to why he left.Some speculation that the addition of Scot McCloughan made him redundant, but that's about it.

Had to chuckle a little: In the video, Eric DeCosta admits he reads draft previews and checks out mock drafts.

Marty Hurney once made a point of saying he didn't need to look at stuff like that :lol:

[sub]The more I read about all of these potential candidates for GM that you have listed Mr Scot, the more I like Tom Gamble of the 49ers. Gamble has Carolina ties having been a scout for the team and also the Eagles, Ravens, Jets, and Colts. He is also a local guy being a High Point U. alum. [/sub]

I was just watching the NFL network and saw a former GM that had that job for 16 years.

I think we can all agree on him.

Charlie Casserly should not be considered under any circumstances.

Yeah, Casserly's not on my list of potential GMs.

Wouldn't be terribly surprised to see him considered for the consultant role though.
