New York Giants Director of College Scouting, Marc Ross, Leading Candidate for Panthers GM Job

It seemed inevitable that New York Giants Director of College Scouting, Marc Ross, would eventually land a job as an NFL General Manager, and it appears likely that will happen sooner rather than later.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Ross is now the leading candidate to land the Carolina Panthers GM job, which was made vacant when the team fired Marty Hurney in late October.

Ross, who is currently in his fifth season as the Giants' Director of College Scouting, has seen tremendous success alongside General Manager Jerry Reese over that span, and the duo have been credited with having some of the best drafts since 2008.

In his first organized draft with the team, the Giants selected safety Kenny Phillips, cornerback Terrell Thomas and wide receiver Mario Manningham. Before that, and during his time with the Philadelphia Eagles, Ross was responsible for drafting players such as Brian Westbrook, Lito Sheppard and Derrick Burgess.

A native of Sharon Hill, Penn., Ross originally entered the NFL as a Public Relations Training Camp Intern for the Giants in 1995.

Should he eventually sign with the Panthers, they are getting one of the best and most talented men the NFL has to offer.

    Of course the unavoidable problem in losing Marc Ross is that he takes our 2013 draft strategy with him. All our UDFA research .. any sleepers we may have in our sights .. any free agents we think are a value signing. It’s not just the loss of a talented personnel man. It’s like having a spy steal all your secrets.

    He can take such diamonds in the rough as Sinorice Moss, Ramses Barden, Travis Beckum, Jonathon Goff and Bryan Kehl with him!

    Saw that piece on ESP about Ross.. Wish him the best, guy has earned a shot and after years under Acorsi and Ross should be very successful..
    Deihl is gone after this season and Snee probably after next but Baas is still pretty young and should be around at least 2-3 years. I see a new RT next year but the other 4 starters the same with Locklear as swing tackle
    Tuck may be playing his last few games as a Giant. I wouldn’t be shocked to see him retire or be a cap casualty.. Guy has been non factor all year. Maybe getting called out by Peirce will have same effect that being called out by Rolle last year did?? Who knows? Guy has been one of my favorite giants the last 5 years but shows no fire and is no longer dominant..

    Can’t worry about Ross at the moment. It is what it is!

    Now this makes me sick…
    Go New Orleans!
    Go Eagles!

    Snee’s decline puzzles me. He’s had some injuries … definitely. But even when healthy his play has dropped off. Doesn’t make sense.

    So around noon, NFL Network, the league-owned network, had a graphic up saying Giants – Ravens 1 PM ET. Way to mislead people.

    GAME IS AT 4:25 PM ET!!

    Maybe it means no more misbegotten “PROJECT” players. Looking at the bright side. And we get to see how really smart Jerry Reese is after all.
    It could be wonderful, or it could be a disaster. Who knows?
