The Cleveland Browns have hired former Washington Redskins general manager, Scot McCloughan as a personnel consultant for the 2018 NFL draft. According to sources, he participated in full scouting sessions this past Saturday February 3rd, 2018.
McCloughan previously served as the general manager for the San Francisco 49ers, where he is recognized as one of the people who assembled the 2012 Super Bowl runner up team.
He would leave the team in 2009 to deal with a divorce and alcoholism. In 2010, he joined the Seattle Seahawks as a senior personnel executive, where he would leave his mark by helping draft players like cornerback Richard Sherman, quarterback Russell Wilson and safety Kam Chancellor.
He would then leave the Seahawks in 2013 due to personal issues. He would return as the Washington Redskins general manager in 2015 and quickly helped the team bring in the talent they needed to have two consecutive winning seasons, including a trip to the playoffs in his first season. He would be fired before the 2017 season due to alcoholism.
