While almost half of the team and the coaching staff is in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl, Falcons general Thomas Dimitroff and most of the scouting department is down in Mobile this week for the Senior Bowl.
Dimitroff and his buddy Scott Pioli (Kansas City’s GM) took some time on the NFL Network set to answer a few questions. <—- Video
Pioli, who clearly likes to hear himself talk, stole most of the air time from T.D.
Pioli was slated to buy dinner Monday night, but he couldn’t get Dimitroff (a vegetarian) to partake in some sauced up hog meat at Dreamland.
Dimitroff told Mayock that the Falcons scout all of the players, but only get serious about system specific players. Otherwise, if the player doesn’t fit their system, he wouldn’t get a lot of consideration.
