With the 2011 NFL Draft in the books, I thought I’d check in with General Manager Brian Xanders and see what the personnel staff has on its plate at the moment.
“We’re getting ready for free agency with whatever system is in place, whether it’s an uncapped-year system or it’s the normal system,” Xanders said.
But that’s far from the only thing on the docket, even with an uncertain labor situation.
“We are working on our player personnel manual and we’re working on the 2012 draft,” the general manager explained. “All the scouts are watching all the tape for — we call it the summer manual for the 2012 draft, which will be printed on May 31. We’ll have an initial draft view and draft board at the end of May. All of our scouts are watching their schools assigned to them and they’re getting all the senior prospects and writing up a quick summary of what they think.
“So we’re really working on three things — the 2012 college draft, pro free agency for 2011, and then we’re refining our player personnel manual.”
