NFL Network’s Mike Garofolo reports that former Washington Redskins GM Scot McCloughan is back in the game already. He has restarted the scouting service that he ran, and the Redskins used, for the 2014 NFL Draft. Garofolo reports that he is advising several teams, and is providing his evaluations on this year’s prospects. McCloughan is no not giving up Redskins information per Garofolo.
McCloughan’s time in Washington was brief, and ended during this year’s draft season(or earlier, depending on which report you believe). McCloughan came to Washington with much fanfare after Dan Snyder was “embarrassed” by the state of the team, and Bruce Allen was the butt of many, many, many, many, many jokes. Allen hired McCloughan after using his draft service, but the relationship soured. Despite back to back winning seasons for the Redskins and a division championship in his 1st year with the team, McCloughan was fired last month.
Bruce Allen is now fully back in control officially, and will have final say on this year’s draft. Director of College Scouting Scott Campbell spoke this week, and he and Head Coach Jay Gruden will have a lot of influence on who comes to Washington this year. The Redskins are reportedly still using the board that McCloughan set up, but Campbell says changes have been made based on new information.
Even though Scot McCloughan is not the Skins GM anymore, his influence will be felt on their draft ... and others'. Details here. pic.twitter.com/Z6qyr9aDUI— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) April 27, 2017
