Well, one person can only look at so many things at one time, and for so long until they lose effectiveness.

The question is not the quantity of eyes evaluating the talent as it is the QUALITY of the eyes doing it. We all know the history of Miami's drafts. How much of Miami's failures were due to drafting philosophy vs scouting effectiveness?

If Miami hasn't, they should do a quality assurance review of the scouts.

Yeah, if they send 55 people every year, it's clearly not working. And as FFM states, I think it's got much more to do with quality than quantity. The people evaluating college players for the Phins have clearly been borderline-incompetent throughout the Fireland era...and before.

Well, what we don't know is whether it's the scouts, the GM/people make the picks, or a combination.

The scouts could be making perfect evaluations, but the GM sets the draft board and could be using other factors like system philosophies, value, or needs dictate how prospects are ranked.

Or the scouts could suck and we'd be screwed from the foundation up.

I read that we normally send 45. We did more this year than normal. Having the position coaches there was different from the norm from what I understand.

My understanding is that this is more of an opportunity to confirm the scouts beliefs on players and won't change how they really scout them which is through tape. They rely on game film. Use the combine as a way to judge how and where players will be selected by other teams. Players that show on tape and show at the combine go higher. Players that show on tape but don't have high workouts stay at the next tier. Players that don't show on tape and didn't show well at the combine go third tier.

Better believe they are all there. Ireland wants to save his butt.
