http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/wire?section=nfl&id=2847257 snippet: NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans filled an open spot Monday by hiring former NFL receiver Lake Dawson as their director of pro personnel. Dawson spent the past six seasons with Seattle, the last two as assistant director of pro personnel, where he worked with now-Titans general manager Mike Reinfeldt. "This will be our first move in an effort to grow our pro personnel department and Lake is the perfect person to start this process," Reinfeldt said in a statement. "I have first-hand knowledge of his ability as a talent evaluator and his growth as a front office employee at Seattle." Dawson replaces Al Smith, whose contract was not extended in January. In Seattle, Dawson oversaw the pro personnel department and tracked team and player movement in the NFL. He also dealt with advance scouting, scouting all pro leagues and preparing for free agency during the past two seasons. He was a pro personnel assistant in his first four years with Seattle.
