Scouting department shuffling


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Speaking of Scots...

Fitterer's former colleague Scot McCloughan was fired from his role as Washington GM in 2017 after reports of excessive drinking affecting his job performance. He hasn't worked directly for an NFL team since. These days, he's doing draft consulting for around a half dozen teams. When the Panthers named Fitterer GM, McCloughan praised it as a great hire.

We don't currently have anyone with the title of college scouting director. Word is that Richardson holdover Jeff Morrow is actually working in that role, even though his title is Executive Director of Player Personnel (odd given that Pat Stewart's title is the same, minus the word "executive").

Can't help but wonder if an old friend might think of giving McCloughan a shot at working in the NFL again.

Also on the former colleague front, the Lions fired three scouts today. Two of them are former colleagues of Pat Stewart from their time with the Patriots (though neither for very long).

Fitterer is definitely making this group his own.

I know that one scout doesn’t make the decisions or that the overall success of the organization doesn’t reflect the individuals competence, but Jags, Bucs, and Houston.......

The last teams they were with aren't necessarily the only teams.

Ellis also confirmed this was official.

So that's two new college scouts, two college scouts gone and two pro scouts gone (Luke being one of them).

And of course, a new assistant GM 🙂

I get the feeling they're not done yet though.

Things could look a lot different when all is said and done.

    • As long as it's not the old Panther's offense of yore where half our PA plays were just: "PA -> all go routes." With our speedsters not named Steve Smith of Keary Colbert, and Kris Mangum, or whatever it was at the time. Just a joke to defend and led to Jake getting crushed far too often for a massive loss.
    • I understand that as well. I would not be in favor of a LB that early. I am pretty much opposed to taking a RB in the first round ever. So I do get it. That said, DT is just such an important position. I just don’t understand the positional value argument I’m relation to DT. Because the best ones eat two blockers. That gives so much leverage to your edge rushers and LBers.    Obviously it isn’t the most important position on the field but it plays such a huge role that gets overlooked by the casual fan. I was of the mindset from day one that I preferred to keep Star over Short. And clearly Short was a great athlete but Star made his job significantly easier. A nasty DT makes the job easier for ever single player on the line. I wanted Brown months before the draft process had started for this reason.
    • Having history with Matt Rhule definitely helps. We interviewed another former Patriots guy for our GM job too. Monti Ossenfort made it to the second round but didn't get the job. Of course, just like Stewart, Ossenfort had a job elsewhere inbetween the Patriots and us.
