Ed Dodds, Vice President of Player Personnel 


Ed Dodds enters his first season with the Colts as vice president of player personnel. Dodds has 15 years of NFL experience and spent the last 10 seasons (2007-2016) with the Seattle Seahawks. He served as Seattle’s senior personnel executive for the last three years and was responsible for evaluating both college and pro talent. As a national scout in 2014, Dodds evaluated the south central region and overtook an expanded role of cross checking other regions.

Dodds was part of a staff that was responsible for drafting franchise players in center Max Unger, safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor, cornerback Richard Sherman, quarterback Russell Wilson and linebackers Bruce Irvin and Bobby Wagner. The success of these draft selections culminated in the team’s first championship with a Super Bowl XLVIII victory over the Denver Broncos. Seattle reached Super Bowl XLIX the following year, but fell to the New England Patriots.

During his tenure with Seattle, Dodds has been part of six winning seasons, five NFC West championships and 10 playoff wins in addition to two Super Bowl appearances.

Prior to joining the Seahawks, Dodds spent four seasons with the Oakland Raiders as a pro scout. He was a student coach at Texas A&M-Kingsville from 2000-03, where he served one year as quality control assistant for the offense and then handled quality control on defense for two seasons. Dodds earned a degree in business marketing from Texas A&M-Kingsville. The Kingsville, Texas native is also a U.S. Coast Guard licensed captain.
