If you're talking about the guys that work for teams? Sure. But most scouts are just sports-obsessed guy who are willing to work hard and pay to be certified as a scout.

I should know. I worked with several of them and explored early steps in gaining certification myself. I also do some amateur college hoops scouting in the area for a few national writers.

The line between "Smart fan that pays attention and puts in the time" and "certified scout" is not as big as you think.
There is an official nfl scout certification?
