After a series of defections thinned out the Green Bay Packers’ front office earlier this offseason, the team has begun restocking the scouting department. According to Inside the League’s Neil Stratton, the Packers have hired Patrick Moore, an area scout with the Cleveland Browns.
Moore joined the Browns in 2013 along with four other scouts, remaining with the team through the 2018 NFL Draft. Prior to his arrival in Cleveland, he spent time as a coach with Fordham University, Louisiana Tech, Auburn, Western Carolina, and Illinois Wesleyan.
The Packers and Browns now share more than a few ties. In addition to Moore moving from Cleveland to Green Bay, the Browns’ front office includes two former Packers director of football operations (John Dorsey, Eliot Wolf) and a former senior personnel executive (Alonzo Highsmith).
Scouts and personnel executives typically move around the league in the weeks following the draft, and this year has proved no exception. The Packers brought in Moore for a yet unannounced role and will likely bring in more evaluators as they adjust to the departures of Wolf and Highsmith. The team has already expanded the responsibilities for executives Jon-Eric Sullivan and John Wojciechowski.
