What does this say about our Scouting Department?

It just occurred to me after reviewing our 10 picks that only 1 is from what any of us might call a NCAA College Football Factory - and that would be Chris Ellis DE from VT in the 3rd. 

Forgetting the players we drafted and the postions they play, if I gave you a GPS or access to Mapquest, who could even find these schools, let alone find an NFL quality player there:

Troy, Akron, Iowa St, NW Missouri, Northwestern St.

Even our large school picks are from less than stellar D1 Football programs:

Indiana, Kansas, Pitt, Kentucky

Makes you wonder what our scouts were looking for - and IMHO the following epitomizes what that "it" is. 

Prior to the draft there were some minor red flags on USC's TE Fred Davis for being "not too excited about playing football" and his "Hollywood Posse".  He chose to be a Day 3 no show at Redskins Minicamp.  Meanwhile Derek Fine was at OBD showing that, while he may not be great at any one thing, he is happy to simply have the chance to be a "football player".  This "it" factor also showed through in our post Draft Rookie FA signings.

Kudos to OBD so far on finding guys that want to be here and truly appreciate the opportunity.  Like the old saying states "Football doesn't build character, it reveals it".

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
