The Jaguars will add another candidate to their general manager search, as they are set to interview Giants Director of College Scouting, Marc Ross, according to Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network and NFL.com. Ross is a popular candidate for a top executive position and has interviews set up with the New York Jets, Carolina Panthers and San Diego Chargers as well, per Kinkhabwala.

Ross broke into scouting with the Philadelphia Eagles where he served as a regional scout before he became the league's youngest college scouting director in 2000 at age 27. He then made a stop with the Buffalo Bills as a national scout before joining the Giants in 2007 as the director of college scouting.

During his time at Princeton, Ross was an All-Ivy League wide receiver and still holds five school records, four as a punt returner. After graduating from the school with a sociology degree, he went to University of Massachusetts and earned a master's degree in sport management.

Ross also satisfies the Jaguars' need to interview a minority candidate for the general manager position in accordance to the Rooney Rule.
