The Green Bay Packers have announced two moves within their scouting department on Wednesday, giving new responsibilities to two former players now working as scouts.

Demetri Goodson, a 2014 sixth-round pick, will now cover the Midlands region for the Packers as a college scout. He worked with the Packers as a scouting intern last season. Goodson appeared in 26 games over three seasons for the Packers before a knee injury derailed his career in 2016. He also spent some time with the New Orleans Saints.

Goodson will fill the role previously held by Brandian Ross, who has covered the Midlands region for the Packers since 2018. Ross will now cover the Southwest region for the Packers. That area was previously covered by Charles Walls, who left the Packers to take a new position with the Cleveland Browns earlier this offseason. Ross signed with the Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2011 and spent that season and part of 2012 on the Packers’ practice squad. He went on to spend time with the Raiders, Dolphins, Chargers, and Broncos. Ross joined the Packers’ scouting department as an intern in 2017.
