The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have named Eric Stokes as director of college scouting.
He comes to the Bucs after a two-year stint with the Seattle Seahawks as their assistant director of college scouting, according to Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune. The Seahawks, in that time, has success rebuilding their secondary with some fine young draft picks.
A former safety for the Seahawks, Stokes has experience in the pro and college scouting departments for the franchise. He was an area scout for seven years and worked on the pro side for three.
The Bucs have a young team and have had high picks in recent drafts that have yet to pan out.
