Some critics argue that I evaluate high school football players "the old-fashioned way," that I'm a relic of the past, that the way it was done 30 years ago hasn't kept up with the times, that today's methods are better.
Well, I take it as a compliment when they say that. Why? Because that's the way the NFL does it, the way I've been doing it for 30 years. The NFL goes out and sees kids in person and evaluates them. Today, Internet services call kids on the phone and talk to them and wait for film to be delivered to them.
The best way to evaluate a prospect is to go to a kid's high school and analyze his film with him and his coach then get views from other coaches in the area for a consensus. Collective opinions are better than individual opinions.
