Meet Eliot Wolf, Green Bay Packers Director of Football Operations
At the age of 34, Wolf's ascent to an NFL general manager position is only a matter of when, not if.
Wolf, the son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Ron Wolf, has worked 13 seasons with the Packers.**Per the Packers**, "Wolf's primary duties include coordinating the pro and college football departments as well as handling both college and pro player evaluation through film study, college visits, pro days, college all-star games and the NFL Scouting Combine. During the season, he is responsible for overseeing advance scouting of upcoming Packers opponents, evaluating potential free-agent signees and recommending player tryouts."
Even though Wolf is younger than several NFL players, he's been a lifer in the scouting world.
Since joining the Packers in 2005, Wolf has been promoted five times. He works directly under well-respected general manager Ted Thompson.
Wolf did interview earlier this offseason for the GM opening in San Francisco. Since the interview, **Wolf signed an extension with the Packers**.
