After 13 seasons in the New England scouting department – first joining the organization in 2006 as a scouting assistant and spending the last six seasons as a national scout – DuJuan Daniels is reportedly moving on to join Mike Mayock's front office with the Raiders.
According to ESPN, Daniels is in Oakland to sign a contract that will give him more upward mobility in terms of future high-ranking NFL personnel jobs.
Daniels is a native of Indianapolis, where he earned Indiana's Mr. Football award before a career as a four-year letterman at Boston College as a wide receiver and kick returner.
As Daniels apparently seeks career advancement – and joins fellow former B. C. Eagle Mayock in Oakland – he departs a New England scouting department run by well-entrenched director of player personnel Nick Caserio. The Patriots also have stability below Caserio on the scouting depth chart with Monti Ossenfort as director of college scouting and Brian Smith as college scouting director as well Dave Ziegler as director of pro personnel.
