In this episode of The Inside Football Podcast with Bill Polian, the guys complete their two-part look at the life of an NFL Scout. Process and myth-busting is the name of the game in this episode. We dive deep into how a scout's visits to college campuses work, how information is gathered, and how, ultimately, that information is collected and organized to nail down the top prospects for their NFL clubs. We get the inside scoop on how much game tape, reports from college coaches, practice habits, scheme fit, and, of course, athletic measurables actually matter. In this episode, we learn about some famous Pro-Days in NFL history, some amazing stories of the best players Bill has scouted, and give you a true glimpse of how NFL teams determine the top draft prospects.
