The Bengals have 3 total (and I think a consultant)
Very cool OP. Thanks for that.

Any idea the range of salaries these guys make? I'm sure the higher end scouts do pretty well, just curious if it is a relatively good career financially.

Re: Getting to Know the Front Office/Understanding the Scouting Process

I think that Bruce should remain President of football operations and AJ Smith should be named GM. AJ would answer to Bruce. What exactly does Doug Williams do for us?

Scott Campbell should be let go. He has been here for a long time during the talent drain. Bring in a former AJ Smith lieutenant or Alonzo Highsmith from the Packers.

Am I the only one that doesn't like AJ Smith? I give him credit for his good drafting in SD but I hated how he let all his prime talent walk when it came time to pay them. If he got the GM role here I could definitely see him letting what few good pieces we have left hit the door.

My perception of Smith coincides with yours. But if he had real GM powers, we'd be better off than we are now. Alas, I don't see this happening.

The best GM would be a mix of the football talent smarts of AJ Smith with the contract smarts of Bruce Allen. Thus in my scenario Bruce controls the money and has the final say, while AJ procures the talent and runs the scouting department.

Re: Getting to Know the Front Office/Understanding the Scouting Process

I doubt Casserly will want to be a GM again. He's been there, been incredibly successful, and probably makes good $ with tv. He probably doesn't have any interest in the crazy hard work it takes to do that again. I would be great, but I would be stunned.

Sadly those were the only two playing for the Redskins. There was another Redskins 1st round pick on the field though, Laron Landry starts at safety for the colts.

Currently the Redskins have 4 1st round draft picks on the roster, Orakpo and RG are the other two.

Re: Getting to Know the Front Office/Understanding the Scouting Process

After you are draft where you were pick doesn't mean shit. Just because you are a 1st round pic doesn't mean shit if you are not producing.

I would take a whole team of 6th round pick Tom Brady level talents over a team of 1st rounders.

That's awesome.

Please sneak into Gillette Stadium and steal their crystal ball.

Until then, why don't we just pick from the cream of the talent coming out of college.

For every 6th round pick that goes to the HOF, how many 1st, 2nd, or 3rd round picks turn out to be really good or good.

Teams with good and really good rosters win championships.

1st round draft picks give teams the opportunity to get top level talent cheaper than free agency for a window under the new collective BA.

My earlier comment was really just complaining. I wish we had the draft picks back.

I agree with what you said but you missed my point.

Drafting in the higher rounds increase the likelihood of getting good players (or at least players who can make the roster and contribute) simply because your picking from the top of the talent pool. Some will wash out and some will be good.

Draft picks are lottery tickets in that you never know what you have until you see the player on the field.

I would love to see lower draft picks develop into star players because of the salary cap implications.
