Welcome to Eye-Scout
Championship teams are built from the ground up and every General Manager, Athletic Director, or Head Coach knows how difficult it can be to find the right “fit” for their program. Like solving a “1000 piece puzzle” it takes time to lay out the requirements and find those players that best reflect your own vision of a champion.
No two teams or organizations are alike, just as each individual player is unique in the skills they bring to the game. Identifying and evaluating these players can be a long and arduous process, a process that can make or break the best of all your efforts.
Eye-Scout can help you piece together the complex puzzle of team building by finding those unique “fits” for your own unique requirements. We’ll save you time and maximize your efforts by combining military technologies and years of professional football experience to bring you one of the most powerful tools utilized in professional scouting and collegiate recruiting . . . Eye-Scout.

He was elevated to GM by Broncos owner Pat Bowlen after having been pursued by both the Chicago Bears and Atlanta Falcons for similar positions in 2001 and 2002.

Ted changed the way Denver used technology and scouting structure in putting together a personnel department that supplied the talent to an organization that has won 58 games over 14 years. Sundquist and his personnel department put the Broncos’ financial house back in order during his tenure as GM. From 2002-2007, the organization was ranked 26th in total committed cash while posting a 5th (tied) overall winning record with 58 wins and 38 losses, three playoff appearances, and an AFC Championship appearance in 2005. Despite the misunderstanding that the Denver Broncos were big spenders in the league, they were ranked 19th in signing bonuses, 22nd in base salaries with many minimum salary players making the rosters, 19th for “in-season incentives” and 15th in “off-season incentives.”
