Gil Brandt

Gil Brandt, a highly-regarded personnel administrator, spent 29 years with the Dallas Cowboys. Gil helped grow the Cowboys into one of the most powerful and popular sports franchises in America. He oversaw the drafting of eight (8) Cowboys’ players who are now enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Brandt was one of the first to use computers for scouting and talent evaluations, and also the first to use psychological tests to evaluate mental makeup of prospects under pressure. Gil’s efforts led to the building of the NFL Scouting Combine to streamline evaluation processes.
