Looks like McCloughan has done just that.
“He [McCloughan] had a scouting service before he became the general manager of the Redskins and according to sources he is back running that scouting service and has advised NFL teams on his thoughts on the draft prospects eligible for the draft this year,” Garofolo reported on NFL Network Thursday afternoon.
On Monday, Redskins scouting director Scott Campbell said McCloughan’s influence was still evident on the team’s draft board. The Redskins front office began creating the board months before McCloughan was fired.
“Certainly his influence is there from the initial boards,” Campbell said.
McCloughan has an excellent reputation as a scout so, while he will likely struggle to find another job with a title like GM, it’s not surprising that teams are interested in his evaluations.
