Dan Hatman’s 2018 NFL Scout Movement Tracker

[dt_divider style=”thick” /]Each year the NFL scouting community engages in a shuffle, as both personnel and scouts move between organizations. Sometimes these are individual movements and promotions from team to team, but other times these moves indicate a new front office that is looking to make a shift in the team’s philosophy.

This tracker I have put together reflects the scouts and personnel moving into and out of each organization this offseason. For most cases, I have given the title of the incoming or outgoing person as they are publicly made available. Please bookmark and check back periodically as the post will be updated daily as new hires are made available.

If known, the team the individual came from / went to is in parenthesis.
