In response to bobbysu's comment:
Can anybody help me on the Pats process of College Scouting? I'm sure BB is too busy to really look at the kids during the College Season. So he must rely on his Scouts and Talent Evaluators.
Now with that said, do these guys get evaluated? Seems, were always missing on WR's, which many teams hit on later rounds. Safety, hasn't been addressed since I cant remember. The Defensive Backfield, should have been a real strong point, by this time.
In normal jobs if you fail at what you were hired for, your gone. Have we kept the same Scouts, lets say the last 6 years? We conststantly moved down in rounds for years. What that tells me is, BB figured or was told he could move down get some picks, and pick up a guy that was VALUED high by our Scouting Staff. Not saying its bad, but did it work?
How would you grade our Scouts? I know its a crap shoot, but just curious.
p@ss poor for wr and def backs.
better at the top half for other positions.
strikes as too narrowly run power structure. been saying for years id prefer a fulltime top of the league gm. bb may be better if he can dedicate fulltime to coaching or fulltime to gm, doing both he is pretty darn good, but not optimal.
like with our coaches, not the top people in the league at these positions, nor enough weight to hold any water vs bb.
