The Patriots have filled the void in their personnel department that opened when Dave Ziegler left the team to become the Raiders General Manager.

The team announced that Matt Groh has been named their director of player personnel. That was the same title that Ziegler had before being hired by Las Vegas.

Groh has spent the last 11 seasons in New England. He was the college scouting director last season and has also served as a national scout, area scout, and scouting assistant during his time in the organization.

Groh’s father Al was a longtime colleague of Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and spent one year as the Jets head coach after Belichick resigned the position. His brother Mike was recently named the Giants’ wide receivers coach.

  1. Nice. Well deserved. He’s been steadily climbing the ranks and his dad’s relationship with BB goes way back.

    Hopefully Kraft let’s this guy make all draft picks in the 1st and 2nd rounds

    Couldn’t agree more. Belichick’s idea of what an NFL player’s build is supposed to be has changed drastically in the last few seasons. Big lumbering linebackers is a thing of the past!

  3. There were 13 playoff games in the playoff of 2021 season, and 26 scores by offense.

    Among 26 scores, only 12 of them are 24 or more (I count Rams’ 23 in SB as 24 because missing extra point), 3 by Chiefs, 2 by Bills, 2 by Bengals and 3 by Rams. Meaning, excluding Bucs’ two playoff games, only 10 out of 24 offense scores are 24 or more, about 42%, either by the best young QB in the league, or with the best WR in the league.

    Belichick’s believers, kindly stop being delusional about that you will watch Pats in AFCCG under Belichick.

  4. Gonna be a loooooooooong time for the Patriots lift the Lombardi again. The curse of the bambino is now the curse of the goat. Maybe in 2093

    In so glad someone wrote this. Every year in th off-season for the last 10 years of his Patriots career I heard Brady was going to retire. Haters were wrong every time.

    Love to see the haters out here making statements like this. Gives me hope.

  6. Will be interesting with so many of the old guard out the door kind of wonder just how much they influenced BB regarding drafting as they have mis hit on so many high round picks these past five years … so we shall soon see if BB has the magic or will he be dropping down to pick some special teams hick from rutgers instead of a sure thing speedy able to seperate big name WR ?? … will know in a few months !!.

    His priority was always on defense, the dimwit thought his defense won the first 3 SB.

    With Brady, he would spend all the resource to upgrade defense, and his believers would talk about how great he was.
