Media access at the NFL combine in Indianapolis begins Thursday. For the scouts who blanket the country looking for talent each year, the combine is another checkpoint in a thorough process.

With this in mind, it's a good time to acknowledge the work of the Patriots' scouting staff and its structure (from team's media guide):

Nick Caserio -- Director of Player Personnel
Floyd Reese -- Senior Football Adviser
Nancy Meier -- Director of Scouting Administration
Jon Robinson -- Director of College Scouting
Brian Smith -- Assistant Director of College Scouting
Jason Licht -- Director of Pro Personnel
Bob Quinn -- Assistant Director of Pro Personnel
Patrick Stewart -- Pro Scout
Larry Cook -- Scouting Consultant
Kyle O'Brien -- National Scout
Monti Ossenfort -- National Scout
Trey Brown -- Area Scout
DuJuan Daniels -- Area Scout
Frank Edgerly -- Area Scout
Tim Heffelfinger -- Area Scout
Frantzy Jourdain -- Area Scout
James Liipfert -- Area Scout
