Report: Seahawks hire Ex-Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland as draft consultant
Former Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland has reportedly been hired to do some pre-draft consulting in Seattle.
Since 2010, McCloughan had helped the Seahawks general manager identify key draft talent like quarterback Russell Wilson and cornerback Richard Sherman. Schneider won't have McCloughan around for the 2014 NFL Draft, but he will have someone else to shoot ideas off of: Former Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland.
Ireland was Miami's general manager from 2008 until this past January when the two sides agreed to mutually part ways. Since Ireland's being hired as a draft consultant, it's probably worth noting that of the 14 players Miami picked in the first or second round under Ireland, only seven of them are still with the team.
Although Ireland's job in Seattle is a temporary one, FoxSports.com notes that it could turn into a full-time role after the draft.
