Tennessee Titans name Patrick Woo new College Scouting Coordinator
By Will Lomas
Patrick Woo has a new title with the Tennessee Titans.
Tennessee Titans fans may not know who Patrick Woo is now, but if you have been paying attention the name should at least be familiar.
Even if you don’t, that doesn’t change the fact that his voice is one that is getting louder and louder in the front office in Nashville.
A quick background, Woo was a recruiting intern at Penn State in 2012 for a summer before ultimately finding a home at the Senior Bowl in 2014 as their Scouting Coordinator.
During that time the, the Senior Bowl really started getting more and more popular. This was due in large part to the caliber of players that were coming through the Senior Bowl.
2015 saw the likes of Preston Smith, Trey Flowers, Grady Jarrett, Shaq Mason, Henry Anderson, and Za’Darius Smith all attend the Senior Bowl. Then once they made their way to the NFL they vastly out preformed their draft position, with Flowers resetting the market for EDGEs in free agency and with Jarrett getting the franchise tag this year.

2016 was the same song, different verse. Kyler Fackerell, Carson Wentz, Joe Schobert, Jacoby Brissett, Dak Prescott, and Kevin Byard have all either made Pro Bowl rosters or have been incredible values for the teams that drafted them. Obviously highlighted by the one and only Mayor of Murfreesboro, All-Pro Kevin Byard.
This continued through 2018 as the Senior Bowl became the gold standard of predraft events, ending up right next the the NFL combine as the key dates on the calendar.
The Titans added Woo to the scouting department in March last year, and thought well enough of him to promote him in just a year’s time.
Connections are important when it comes to scouting and the Titans seem to have found someone with deep connections to college football in Woo. It will be interesting to watch how much of an emphasis is put on Senior Bowl players in the draft and UDFA going forward with the Titans actually using 2 of their 6 draft picks on Senior Bowl players this year.
Woo is very young and has already established himself with an NFL team that knows how to draft well. He is a name to keep in mind as the decks continues to get shuffled around the NFL with new GMs seemingly gone every month.
