Norm, try this one
Pretty detailed article on drafting and includes stuff from Wolf, Thompson, Dorsey, Schneider and others. There are layers and more layers and cross checks and re-checks. And then the coaches get involved both before and after. Its a multi-million dollar investment by every club

That's why even though Chili took the time to make that detailed post- assigning a player ( hit or a bust ) to an area scout really isn't the way its done in the NFL.

Its a good read. here's a snippet on horizontal boards:

On the other hand, there is the horizontal board. Teams in the Ron Wolf tree of scouting more typically use this, where draft prospects are graded and compared to players on that current roster.
"We grade for our team," John Schneider explains, "we don't grade for the league. Our board basically represents that. We grade a guy based on whether we think he can compete with Bruce Irvin or Malcolm Smith or Bobby Wagner, and that's the way our board falls."

.


Sweet, thanks. Bookmarked so I can read it when I have a few minutes to really pay attention.

That JS quote about grading against his team is certainly interesting. Makes a lot of sense though.
