Scout.com has been tracking the activity of NFL personnel execs as they peer over the available prospects. Their activity can provide some insight into the off-season priorities for their franchises, if not an actual heads-up on their eventual draft picks.
A number of top-level executives took in the North practice on Monday. Among the onlookers were Terry Bradway of the New York Jets, Phil Savage of the Cleveland Browns, and Scott Pioli of the New England Patriots. Also on hand were head coaches Bill Belichick and Sean Payton, newly appointed to the New Orleans Saints.
After practice, executives and scouts pulled aside players for chats and interviews. Here's a listing:
Washington Redskins: The Redskins showed their interest in defensive linemen as two different Redskins scouts spoke with DT Gabe Watson and DL Dusty Dvoracek seperately. The Redskins also talked to LB Spencer Havner, UCLA; OT Marcus McNeill, Auburn; RB Jerome Harrison, Washington State.

Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens were looking at a number of positions, but emphasized offensive line on Monday. WR Hank Baskett, New Mexico; C Ryan Cook, New Mexico; RB Andre Hall, South Florida; OL Daryn Colledge, Boise State; OL Charles Spencer, Pitt; DB Will Blackmon, Boston College.
Cleveland Browns: The Browns spent a lot of time studying DT Broderick Bunkley (Florida State) who would likely be a defensive end in the team's 3-4 scheme. The Browns also spent time with offensive linemen Daryn Colledge and highly-regarded OT D'Brickashaw Ferguson.
Dallas Cowboys: RB Jerios Norwood, Mississippi State
Miami Dolphins: LB Spencer Havner, UCLA; OL Ryan Cook, New Mexico
New York Jets: The Jets interest in D'Brickashaw Ferguson was evidenced by Terry Bradway waiting in line to speak to him. Ferguson is a strong possibility to the Jets with their first-round pick. The Jets also talked to defensive backs Cedric Griffen (Texas) and Will Blackmon (Boston College).
San Diego Chargers: The Chargers were very active and spoke with LB D'qwell Jackson, Maryland; TE Dominique Byrd, USC; DL Victor Adeyanju, Indiana; LB Abdul Hodge, Iowa; OT Jon Scott, Texas; WR Maurice Stovall, Notre Dame.
