He joined the Broncos after spending nine years as a college scout for Green Bay from 2000-08 following the conclusion of his six-year NFL playing career.

As a college scout with the Packers, McGill was responsible for scouting the Central Plains region. Hired by Green Bay on Feb. 2, 2000, he was part of five playoff berths and four division titles with the Packers while helping the club post the NFL’s sixth-best regular-season record (84-60 / .583) from 2000-08.

Before beginning his scouting career, McGill played cornerback in the NFL and saw time in 62 career regular-season games (9 starts) and three postseason contests with Green Bay (1994–95), Atlanta (1996–97) and Carolina (1998). He totaled 104 tackles (84 solo), four interceptions (29 yds.), 16 pass breakups, one sack (5 yds.), two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble for his NFL career.

McGill played at Arizona State University from 1990–93 and was a two-year starter for the Sun Devils, earning honorable mention All-Pacific-10 Conference honors as a senior. He also lettered for three seasons on the Sun Devils’ track and field team, finishing second in the conference in the triple jump as a sophomore.

McGill attended Orange Glen High School in Escondido, Calif., where he was a four-year letterman in football, basketball and track who was inducted into the San Diego High School Hall of Fame in 2002. He was named one of the top 10 defensive backs in the country by The Sporting News and was the No. 1 triple jumper in the nation as a senior with a jump of 51’2”.
