On this episode of the Quick Kicks podcast, Chuck Zodda and Mark Schofield step back a bit and focus on a few terms from the Inside the Pylon Glossary. Given that NFL agency is upon us, and the NFL Draft is creeping closer, Chuck and Mark especially focus on front office glossary terms and go in depth on what these terms mean and how listeners can benefit from learning more about them. Topics on this episode include:
- A discussion of the term shadow roster and how the New England Patriots constant roster movements for Ross Ventrone highlight how the shadow roster is used (1:39)
- Next is the term Pro Personnel Director and who this individual is, and how he or she fits into an NFL team’s organization hierarchy (8:50).
- Chuck and Mark put on their owner hats and choose between preferring a general manager with Pro Personnel Director background or College Scouting Director background (13:52).
- Twitter question from listener Bill Ormande on the difficulties and changes for a defensive end transitioning between a 4-3 defense and 3-4 defense
