Demetri Goodson promoted to college scout, Brandian Ross to scout Southwest region

The Green Bay Packers announced changes to their player personnel department. The announcement was made Wednesday by General Manager Brian Gutekunst.

Demetri Goodson has been promoted to college scout covering the Midlands region after spending last season as a scouting intern for the Packers. He was originally drafted by Green Bay in the sixth round (No. 197 overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft out of Baylor. In four seasons with the Packers, Goodson played in 26 regular-season games with three starts and appeared in two postseason contests. The former basketball player at Gonzaga (2008-11) also spent some time on the New Orleans Saints' roster in 2018.

Brandian Ross (first name pronounced Brandon), who spent the last two years as a college scout covering the Midlands region for the Packers, will now scout the Southwest region. He joined the Packers' personnel department in 2017 as a scouting intern and then was a scouting assistant before being promoted to college scout in May 2018. The former defensive back originally signed with Green Bay as an undrafted free agent in 2011 and spent time on the Packers' practice squad during the 2011-12 seasons. From 2012-15, Ross played in 45 games with 24 starts for the Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers and Miami Dolphins.
