The Ravens today announced two changes in their personnel department with Brandon Berning moving to Midwest/Southwest area scout and Kevin Weidl being hired as the team's Southeast/Southwest area scout.
Berning joined the Ravens after the 2015 NFL draft as a player personnel assistant. In his new role, he will scout players from the Big 12, Big Ten, SEC and AAC. As a player personnel assistant, Berning prepared advance scouting reports on future opponents and assessed free agents.
Weidl joins the Ravens after spending the last 11 years as a draft analyst for ESPN’s Scouts Inc., where he evaluated and wrote scouting reports on draft prospects. He will focus on players from the SEC, ACC and Big 12 for the Ravens.
Prior to ESPN, Weidl was a three-year starting quarterback for Indiana University of Pennsylvania (2004-06). His older brother, Andy, worked in the Ravens’ scouting department from 2005-16 and is the Philadelphia Eagles’ assistant director of player personnel.
