Maybe not 10 times per guy but at least a couple of visits.
Can you explain something to me. I don't understand how you would plan for a draft.
For example, we are picking at 17. I'm sure there were some players in 1-16 that TT really liked and would consider PG to move up if the price was right.
But how many of those players, would he actually have watched? I mean some players are obviously unattainable like Hopkins. But don't you have a responsibility to watch guys 5-15 at least once even if you aren't likely to be able to take them?
Then don't you also want to be prepared if someone offers you a 1st and a 3rd for your 17th pick, to take their 22nd? So don't you need to also watch guys from 15-30?
I mean, that's like 25 guys that you should see in the first round. Now I can't imagine planning for other rounds.
