I agree with that. However I'm sure Ballard took it into consideration a little bit. Even if it was as small as a question when they interviewed him. But, for the most part, I think he went off of his own evaluation and those of his scouts.
I do think that there are many very smart fans who collectively could do well as part of a front office. I'm not advocating for it, just thinking hypothetically. Wouldn't it be fun if we knew how we would do in the drafts if we replaced Grigson. Maybe 15 of the best posters on this site going with majority rules. We would have taken Luck, that is pretty certain. We may have done worse over the 5 drafts he did, but I would bet that we would have been close or even surpassed his success.
