Ran across this article about one of our new scouts:

Dupree signs as Redskins scout
Jimmy Watson, The Shreveport (LA) Times

Former Oklahoma running back Marcus Dupree, who recently served as the general manager for the Bossier City Battle Wings, is making his first administrative foray into the National Football League.

Dupree has signed a one-year deal with the Washington Redskins to serve as a college player scout. He will evaluate potential pro football prospects in the Southwest Region including visiting schools in Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska and some from the Pac-10.

"I'm very excited about this opportunity, particularly the area I will be scouting," Dupree said. "I'll spend a lot of time at Oklahoma, where I'll have the opportunity to see a number of the teams I'll scout come in."

Dupree will do background checks, watch game film and see live action of the prospects in his region, reporting to Redskins college scouting director Scott Campbell. He'll report to training camp on July 24 with the other four college scouts and will spend 10 days observing current Redskins signees.
