ESPN - NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock has emerged as a candidate to become the Washington Redskins' next general manager, according to league sources.
Washington is not likely to hire a GM until after the draft, and it has a group of candidates that is thought to include Mayock and ESPN analyst Mark Dominik, per league sources.
The Redskins are not rushing to fill the opening that was created Thursday, when they fired Scot McCloughan. Washington easily could wind up waiting until after next month's NFL draft to hire its next general manager, per sources.
This is crazy news. NFL Network's Draft Analyst, who by all accounts is a man deeply invested in the scouting process that NFL teams undergo, has emerged as a candidate for the Redskins GM positon.
The word 'emerged' can mean a lot of things in this case. Someone in Washington might have casually mentioned his name to a source or Dan Snyder could have mumbled 'mike mayock' in his sleep, but it deserves attention nonetheless.
One day after the Redskins fire their GM, they are back in the mix.
