The Eagles have made three hires to their scouting staff, and promoted three others.
They added a pair of college scouts and a pro scout. The two college-scouting additions are Michael Davis (midwest area) and Trey Brown (west coast). Louis Clark joins the organization as a pro scout. He will assist with advance scouting and evaluation of current NFL players.
Three other scouts received promotions. Ed Marynowitz, who had been the team’s assistant director of pro scouting, was named assistant director of player personnel.
Mike Bradway, who had been the team’s northeast area scout, was named eastern regional scout. And Alan Wolking, who had worked the midwest, now will scout the southeast.
Davis had been the Jets’ assistant director of college scouting for the last five years. Brown spent the previous three years on the Patriots’ scouting staff.
Clark had been the pro personnel director for the Jacksonville Jaquars.
General manager Howie Roseman has almost completely remade his scouting staff in the last 18 months. There are just four scouts who were with the team following the 2011 season – Bradway, college scouting director Anthony Patch, longtime southwest area scout Andy Speyer, and Brad Obee, who is the team’s college scouting coordinator.
“I’m extremely excited about our staff,’’ Roseman said. “It takes a while to get a group together and figure it out. I think we finally have the right mix.
“It’s a very interesting mix for us. A dynamic of good evaluators and good people who bring a lot to the table.’’
Roseman has added a lot of valuable experience to his staff over the last two years, bringing in former Saints player personnel chief Rick Mueller in January of 2012, Steelers player personnel chief and Bills GM Tom Donahoe as a senior advisor last May and former 49ers player personnel director Tom Gamble earlier this year as the team’s vice-president of player personnel.
“You have to give Howie credit,’’ Donahoe said. “Because there aren’t a lot of young guys who would do that. They’d feel threatened by it. They would feel intimidated by it.
“I think all Howie is trying to do is get the best group of scouts that he can. He values our opinion. We don’t always agree, but that’s part of scouting.’’
