Having a solid scouting department & GM is critically important. Every year it's the same thing. Many of the hyped "can't miss" players, end up performing worse than players drafted later - and many of these high picks end up complete busts who are not even in the NFL a few years later. Even Heisman Trophy winners have ended up busts. Once you get solid scouts and a solid GM, they are worth their weight in gold. They are the architects of Super Bowl winners.
