Kyle Johnson (left) talks with Quentin Harris during minicamp earlier this month, while Johnson was interviewing for the scouting position for which he has been hired.
With the draft over, the Cardinals have reconfigured their scouting staff.
The team hired Kyle Johnson, a former fullback for the Denver Broncos, to scout players in the northeast region of the country as well as serve as the Cards' representative with the National Football Scouting Service. Johnson, who played for the Broncos from 2002-2007, was a one-time college and pro teammate of Quentin Harris, who has been working in the Cardinals' pro personnel office.
Harris has earned a promotion himself, to assistant pro personnel director, as he works under director of pro personnel T.J. McCreight.
Johnson fills the spot left when the Cardinals did not renew the contract of long-time scout Jerry Hardaway.
Johnson, who attended Syracuse, played in 45 games with the Broncos after being a fifth-round draft pick of the Panthers in 2002. Harris and Johnson played together in Denver in 2006.
With Johnson's arrival, the Cardinals have shifted the responsibilities of two other scouts. Dru Grigson, who had been scouting the Midwest and East, is now a regional scout for the eastern part of the county. Mike Boni, who had essentially had Johnson's role, will now cover the Midwest and the East.
