Falcons TWESTOTE of the Day: DeJuan Polk Promoted to Coordinator of Pro Scouting

TD and company have shown an affinity for developing players. Sometimes it makes sense to draft a guy who isn't first team-ready and see what he can become with a little seasoning. And after reading this story about DeJuan Polk's promotion, it dawned on me that the Falcons take the same approach with off-the-field personnel.

DeJuan Polk, who has been with the Falcons since 2006, was promoted to coordinator of pro scouting on Thursday.

"DeJuan has a done a fantastic job for us during his time here," Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said in a statement. "He has a tremendous work ethic and an acute eye for talent."

Polk - to my knowledge - never played pro ball. But he lettered four times at Clemson (graduating in 2003) then became Defensive Tackles Coach at South Carolina State in 2005. He's served as the Pro Personnel Assistant and a Pro Scout during his time with the Falcons. Last but not least, he's handled advanced scouting as-of-late. All in all, a solid promotion. Congrats DeJuan!
