The Pro Football Hall of Fame is proud to offer a brand-new series for learners in high school, college and beyond! “Before the Snap” gives an insight to professional careers in and around the NFL, while giving a live audience the opportunity to interact with an industry expert. On Friday, May 14th, 2021 at 12:00pm ET special guest Andrew Raphael will be on hand to speak on his career, what he does in his current position and much more!!
Andrew Raphael was named Southeast area scout following the 2016 NFL Draft. In his eighth year with the team, he covers schools from Florida to North Carolina, also spanning Tennessee and Alabama. Raphael evaluated and graded three of the Ravens’ five recent first-round draft picks: LB Patrick Queen (LSU) in 2019, TE Hayden Hurst (South Carolina), No. 25 overall in 2018, and CB Marlon Humphrey (Alabama), No. 16 in 2017. After joining the Ravens in 2013, Raphael handled a host of projects within the personnel department, such as evaluating practice squad players, organizing local college workouts, and assessing free agent prospects. He has also assisted with many aspects of the draft process, including helping coordinate the team’s 30 pre-draft visits, communicating the Ravens’ selection to the league representative during the draft and assisting player personnel coordinator Mark Azevedo with the post-draft free agency signing process. He worked as student assistant to the national recruiting coordinator at the University of Miami during the 2010 season and graduated with a dual degree in communication and sports administration from Miami.
