St. Louis Rams - Les Snead Snead was hired by the expansion Jacksonville Jaguars as a pro scout, where he worked until 1997, when he was hired by the Atlanta Falcons to the same position, but also served as the director of pro/player personnel.

San Francisco 49ers - Trent Baalke Trent John Baalke (/ˈbɑːlkiː/ BAHL-kee) is the General Manager of the San Francisco 49ers, an American football team in the National Football League (NFL). He was officially named General Manager in January 2011, though he had been responsible for the duties of a general manager since Scot McCloughan's departure from the team in March 2010. He was first hired by the 49ers in 2005 as their Western Region Scout, and three years later was promoted to Director of Player Personnel, a position largely responsible for overseeing the team's college scouting operations. Baalke was chosen to lead the 49ers in the 2010 NFL Draft in place of McCloughan, and a month later was given the title of Vice President of Player Personnel. His official promotion to General Manager came shortly after the firing of Mike Singletary as head coach of the 49ers, in anticipation of needing an official GM to lure Jim Harbaugh away from Stanford for the vacant coaching position. Arizona Cardinals - Steve Keim Steve Keim is the general manager of the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League. He was promoted to the position on January 8, 2013 after spending the previous 14 years in the Cardinals front office. He played college football at NC State. Atlanta Falcons - Thomas Dimitroff Early career After graduating from college, Dimitroff joined the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League as their Canadian scouting coordinator, but worked in many areas of the team's operations for the two seasons he was there. In 1992, he worked in the Dallas, Texas office of the World League of American Football, tracking NFL player transactions and rosters. When the league folded later that year, Dimitroff moved to Japan, where he helped coach a friend's corporate American football team. Dimitroff then considered leaving the football world for business, but instead he went back to the United States, where he joined the Cleveland Browns' grounds crew; his father was a scout for the team at the time. There he worked under then-head coach Bill Belichick and then-pro personnel assistant Scott Pioli. At the same time, he worked as a part-time scout for the Kansas City Chiefs in 1993. In 1994, Dimitroff became a full-time area scout for the Detroit Lions, a position he held through 1997. He then held a similar college scouting position with the Browns from 1998 through 2001. New England Patriots In 2002, Dimitroff re-joined Belichick and Pioli with the New England Patriots as a national scout. He spent the season reporting on the nation's top prospects before being promoted to director of college scouting on June 11, 2003. He oversaw the team's college scouting operations through the 2007 season. After six seasons with the Patriots, Dimitroff was hired as the Falcons' general manager on January 13, 2008.
