Today, 106.7 The Fan’s Grant Paulsen got a rare interview with Redskins’ Director of Pro Personnel Scott Campbell at the Senior Bowl. Scouts from around the NFL are in Mobile, AL this week scouting the top Senior NFL prospects. Some of the more notable names are Brandon Weeden, Kellen Moore, Russell Wilson, Alshon Jeffery, Nick Foles, Quinton Coples, Courtney Upshaw, and Melvin Ingram.
Campbell told Paulsen that the Redskins’ scouts will be looking for players that stand out on a field of talented prospects. Campbell noted that it’s tough to take home a lot from practice, but there are characteristics to look for during the week before Saturday’s exhibition game.
Campbell also explained the process of interviewing players and what kind of questions are asked during the one on one’s.
Going into his 25th season in the NFL and 11th with the Redskins, Campbell has been a big part of Redskins’ recent draft success. His in-depth scouting of Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan were a big reason the team made those selections.
