The Eagles made a couple of personnel moves today, promoting Anthony Patch to Director of College Scouting and hiring Rick Mueller as Player Personnel Executive.

Patch, 33, has been with the Eagles with for 10 years. He first joined the team in 2002 as a college scouting coordinator, became a scout and then was named assistant director of college scouting in 2010.

Mueller, 44, previously worked in New Orleans (2000-08) and Jacksonville (1994-2000). He was the Saints' vice president of player personnel from 2006-08 and director of player personnel from 2000-2006. He worked as the Jaguars director of college scouting (1998-2000) after a five-year stint as a college scout (1994-98).

"We are very pleased to promote Anthony and add Rick to our scouting staff," Eagles General Manager Howie Roseman said . "Anthony has been one of our top talent evaluators during his tenure as a college scout, has great relationships throughout football and is an extremely hard worker. Rick brings a wealth of NFL experience while giving us a new and fresh set of eyes to evaluate incoming talent. They will both play a role in helping us prepare for this offseason of free agency and the draft.”

The moves aren't meant to fill the Director of Player Personnel job that was left vacant after Ryan Grigson was hired as Colts general manager. Roseman said earlier this week that the Eagles will eventually replace Grigson, but that move may not come until after the draft.
