What The Scouts Are Seeing In Orlando, And Other Links

Posted by Matt Terl on January 19, 2011 – 11:32 am

The Redskins scouts are down in Orlando at the moment, watching practice for the East/West Shrine Game, and Redskins.com’s Larry Weisman talked to Redskins director of player personnel Scott Campbell about what they watch for — and what they don’t.

And one thing they emphatically don’t watch, interestingly enough, is the actual East/West Shrine Game. No, the scouting staff is most definitely watching the practices, and they’re looking for much more than just athletic ability.

“You find out who the leaders are, the natural leaders the kids are gravitating to,” Cambell told Weisman. “You see who the coaches are getting on, who can’t learn the plays. If you’re paying attention, all that stuff shows up and it is stuff you can’t see in the game. It’s all the little things you can pick up watching a practice.”

Much more here, and if you want further to increase your knowledge of Campbell’s approach to the college all-star games, check out this interview Gary Fitzgerald and I conducted with him in January of 2009.
