It's Musical Chairs For Cowboys Scouting Department

Dallas's scouting department added one, lost one and did a lot of shuffling in the past month



    Much like the Dallas Cowboys’ defense, the team’s scouting department is getting a makeover this offseason.

    In the most noteworthy of the moves, the Cowboys’ northeast scout John Wojciechowski departed for Green Bay following last month’s draft and, this week, Dallas brought Jim Abrams into the fold after six seasons as the national scout for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Since the subsequent shuffling in the Cowboys’ scouting department is more than a mouthful, we’ll let Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas do the leg work:

    “Abrams will serve as the Cowboys’ West Coast scout with Sam Garza serving as a scout for Texas and Oklahoma. Bill DeKraker will move from the Midwest to Northeast and Kevin Simon was bumped up from the team’s Combine scout to the Midwest. Mitch LaPoint will remain the team’s Southeast scout. Justin Stucky will take over as the Combine scout.” 

    The scouts not confined to any one region are assistant director of player personnel Tom Ciskowski, Drew Fabianich and Walter Juliff (national scouts) and Chris Hall (college scouting coordinator).
