It was perfectly clear the first time you said it. He was Colts GM, he wasn't a scout.
Adding, deciding 'what needs to be found" also requires input from a competent coach. A coach needs to know what attributes a player needs to have in order to be able to succeed in the role in which the coach wants to use him.
A GM who is going to tell the scouts which attributes to look for needs input from the coach as to what attributes are best suited for his defensive and offensive schemes.
