Default Green Named AFC Scout of the Year

Green Named AFC Scout of the Year
By Gray Caldwell

Posted Jan 31, 2011

Cornell Green, a 25-year scout for the Broncos, was named the AFC Scout of the Year by the Fritz Pollard Alliance.



ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Cornell Green, a 25-year scout for the Broncos, was named AFC Scout of the Year by the Fritz Pollard Alliance.

Green is currently responsible for scouting the Southwest area, but has also served as a scouting consultant for the team and evaluated the South, East and Midwest regions earlier in his career.

"Cornell is a vital part of our scouting department, and I'm thrilled that the Fritz Pollard Alliance is honoring him with this prestigious award," General Manager Brian Xanders said. "He is a winner who brings vast experience and wisdom to our scouting process. Cornell's track record of success as both a player and talent evaluator in the NFL is a unique combination, and we're fortunate to have him with the Denver Broncos."

The 2011 season marks Green's 32nd evaluating talent in the NFL, as he began his scouting career with the Dallas Cowboys in 1970 while still an active player. He went to five Pro Bowls as a defensive back for the Cowboys, never missing a game during his 13 seasons with the team.

During that time, he compiled a 145-game consecutive starts streak while helping the Cowboys to eight consecutive playoff appearances, including back-to-back Super Bowl berths from 1970-71. He helped lead Dallas to a victory in Super Bowl VI during the 1971 season.

Green will be presented with the award on Friday, Feb. 25, at the FPA's awards reception in Indianapolis, alongside NFC Scout of the Year Bob Harrison of the Atlanta Falcons.

I'm curious as to what qualifications are needed to win this award.

Never the less, congratulations to Cornell. This is the kind of personel we need filling the Denver Broncos atmosphere.

Just curious but did someone look at the overwhelming array of talent we had assembled on the field of play this season and decide the Bronco’s organization deserved an award for scouting?

As someone possibly alluded to above, does this equate to "black scout of the year" award?

Both of those guys are black and the only time anyone mentions the Fritz Pollard Alliance is when someone's b****ing about the Rooney rule.

If that is the case. F this stuff. Quit dividing things by racial lines.

It must be for his work with the Cowgirls. There is no other plausible explanation for this award...

Was Green in charge of the draft or free agency? No. The organization thought that McDaniels knew more than him when it comes to evaluating talent, which is why we are where we are.

How come no example of his finds to warrant such an award? Was it Perrish Cox? :ROFL:

FFS guys can you not just congratulate a Denver Bronco employee for receiving an award for his work. Mere mortals like ourselves aren't privy to exactly what or who Mr Green has uncovered in the last 25 years but someone or some group are.

Well done that man!!!

Unfortunately, I've gotten to the bottom of this and kinda disgusted by it...

NFC winner and AFC winner:





Fritz Pollard was the first black HC in the NFL and this organization is a group promoting minority hiring in the NFL is named after him.

Any "award" that's labeled as an unbiased blanket award, gets completely discredited when you find out they're only furthering their own agenda by not allowing white candidates/winners. Why not just call it "Black scout of the year"?

My issue with them is they're respected as the top authority on equality in the NFL (when Rooney rule questions come into play, it's the FPA who people generally look to for compliance guidance) and they'll then turn around and alienate based on race.

It's not even a matter of equality and hiring here - it's a pat on the back and they wont set the example and exclude race.

Who cares about all that? If he's been scouting 32 years and he's also got that NFL pedigree, isn't it time to bump this guy to the FO as Director of Scouting or something? I'm pretty sure 32 years as a scout and 5 pro bowls in a 13 year career should mean he knows what he's doing by now.

This is a highly competitive job field where a LOT of the guys have backgrounds just as good. Quite frankly, the log jam to start getting those higher slots as director of collegiate scouting/personnel and general managers is so great that you really need to have a fantastic RESULTS ORIENTATED resume of successes.

Skim through. We hardly ever take players from the SW. This guy certainly hasnt earned a promotion. And definitely didnt earn this award.
