The Ravens have lost one of their top scouts, Andy Weidl, to Philadelphia, the Eagles announced Wednesday afternoon.
An 11-year Raven, Weidl was plucked off Baltimore's staff by former Ravens scout Joe Douglas, who has been hired by the Eagles to be their vice president of player personnel. Douglas spent 15 years as a Ravens scout before moving to Chicago last year and now Philadelphia.
The Eagles are giving Weidl a promotion to assistant director of player personnel.
Weidl joined the Ravens as the West-area scout in 2005. After four years in that role, he moved to the Northeast for three years before being named the East-regional scout following the 2013 NFL Draft.
In that role, he was responsible for scouting the entire eastern section of the country, including players from the ACC, American Conference, Big Ten, MAC and SEC.
This year, Ravens draft picks Tavon Young (Temple), Chris Moore (Cincinnati), Willie Henry (Michigan), Keenan Reynolds (Navy) and Maurice Canady (Virginia) fell under Weidl's umbrella.
Over the years, Weidl scouted Ravens draft picks such as fullback Kyle Juszczyk (Harvard), Torrey Smith (Maryland), Tyrod Taylor (Virginia Tech), Art Jones (Syracuse) and Haloti Ngata (Oregon).
