Mestieri '08, Professional Scouting Assistant, New York Giants
A bit about what alum Mike Mestieri '08 does in his role as a professional scouting assistant with the New York Giants:
"I work as a professional scouting assistant with the New York Giants. During the season, I spend most of my time charting special teams personnel, breaking down defensive sub packages, and generating and editing our weekly advanced scouting book that we present to the coaches.
On game day, I go to Giants and Jets (when we're away) home games, and scout players who will be upcoming free agents. In the off season, I maintain team depth charts and free agent boards, and help to evaluate free agents by watching film on the players, writing reports,and grading them. I'll also assist with free agent visits, go to college pro days, and help out with the draft by monitoring trades and draft picks."
