I have a question. Who are the best teams in the league in your opinion that are willing to invest time and resources into aquiring small school prospects.
I might be biased, but I think the Saints have to be among the top, no?
All 32 teams spend about the same amount of time in terms of scouting all players. They all either use National or BLESTO or spend time contacting all schools. There are definitely some teams who I believe are willing to draft or sign small schoolers more than others. Saints would be one while the Panthers, Patriots, Rams, Ravens, Falcons, and Cowboys have all shown they will draft them and do it high.
I told Scott that I would like to go in detail this spring about how the NFL goes about working on the draft. What the media and draft fans don't realize is that a portion of the NFL is working 100% on the 2015 draft class right now and has been for a month and a half. They are about 3 steps ahead of the media and what you read on the internet.
