Not enough credit is given to having your own scouts in place

Seems to me like more weight should be placed behind the idea behind having your own, like-minded scouts in place that know the types of players you're already looking for. It's been beaten to death around here whether the success of Pioli's first draft as our GM should be asterisked by the fact the he did not have his own scouts in place -- guys that had a clear map of the team's needs based on Pioli's vision. Quotes like the one below made by Harbaugh lead me to believe that GMs have to trust their scouts more than we (or I) thought. And it is important to be on the same page with them in all facets of how personnel is to be evaluated and what the guys building the football team want in their players. "You’re not going to come out of here after a 15-minute interview and say, ‘okay, I know this guy inside and out,’" Harbaugh continued. "I kind of think that (the Combine) is like a meet and greet. We’re going to meet and greet 60 guys as coaches. Our area scouts have known these guys throughout their whole careers, but now (the coaches) get a chance to shake hands and the process begins for us." Around the Combine: Day Three -- kcchiefs.com
