Eagles hire scout/blogger/podcaster Daniel Jeremiah

Scout.com's Adam Caplan noticed on the Philadelphia Eagles website that NFL scout and one of the more informative NFL bloggers and podcasters around, Daniel Jeremiah was listed as a college area scout. According to Caplan, Jeremiah was hired to replace a scout that had left for Cleveland.

Jeremiah is a noteworthy hire simply for the mini fame he gained as blogger and podcaster. He started the incredibly useful "Move the Sticks" podcast in which the former scout talked about everything a scout looks for in prospects at all positions. He also told some great stories about the combine, player visits, pro days... really everything that a pro scout does. He was also an active twitterer with over 18,000 followers. You'll notice that he curiously stopped tweeting on May 7th. Soon enough based mostly on his internet work, he was appearing on ESPN shows as an expert.

Back before the draft I told everyone they should be listening to his podcast and highlighted a story he told about King Dunlap having the worst physique he'd seen at the combine.

Jeremiah was formerly a scout for the Ravens and Browns, so his link to the Eagles was probably Phil Savage. I just find it interesting that we actually know quite a bit about a guy who holds a typically anonymous position in the organization.
