They always say the first two rounds are typically calls made by the front office. The later rounds go to the scouts. Think our scouting department did a decent job in the late rounds, especially given that they were recruiting talent for flawed schemes. Scouting is a top down process. The better the vision is from the guys up top, the better our scouts are going to be at finding the right guys.
You think Peterson's scouts were limited, but Pioli's weren't?
Based on what? Our incredible late round drafting the last 4 years?
