I started my scouting career with the Buffalo Bills in 1981 as a part time scout. Became an area scout for National Football Scouting in 1984 and worked with them through the 1984 football season. I then joined the New York Giants as an area scout in January 1985. I was with the Giants through the 2001 NFL Draft and then became Director of College Scouting for the Chicago Bears. I held that position for 9 years and retired after the 2010 Draft. During my time in Chicago we were able to draft 9 Pro Bowl players and win 3 Division Championships as well as 1 conference Championship. Since retiring I have consulted for NFL teams including the Philadelphia Eagles for the 2012 season and 2013 Draft. I also write for the Nationalfootballpost.com on the NFL Draft and NFL in general.

Like the others that have messaged you, I have always had a passion for the draft and scouting. If you would have any time to talk to me about how to become an NFL scout, I would be very interested to learn about it.
Good Morning Greg,
I was curious as to the process of becoming an NFL Scout? What positions/skills/traits did you acquire previous to becoming an NFL Scout? I am curious because I would like to do something like that one day. Thanks.
