Just curious about this, really.  The site only lists the scouting directors, it doesn't mention how large their staffs are, how they're divided as far as territories, who they are, etc... 

 

Anyone know where this information can be found?

Just looking around the division, the Saints have 9, the Falcons have 8, and the Bucs have 8.  The Panthers are the only team that doesn't list it's scouts in the staff directory.

Some guy on the Titan's SBNation blog is posting about his days as a scout for the Saints and the Panthers, and I was curious to see who it might have been (and if he was another NJPanther type, which I suspect).

I remember hearing at one point that we had one of the smallest, if not the smallest scouting department staffs in the NFL.

Unless that has changed since this article was written at the beginning of 2012.

The scouts are not nearly as important as the guy who takes all the data and digests it.

 

Hurney and Gettleman could use the exact same scouts with totally different results.

But all of the talent evaluators become important when they're given a voice in the discussion. It's not like Gettleman locks himself in a room and doesn't come out until he's ordered the prospects on the draft board. I don't know how inclusive Hurney was in the decision making process but Gettleman and others have been clear about the openness of those discussions. Cam's stated that everyone on the team has the right to say something; that you don't have to be a leader to open your mouth in the locker room. Seems like the draft war room takes the same approach.

 

Scouts are definitely important. Even the best GM would make bad decisions if he's given bad information to work with from the jump.
