If you treat prospects as if they're failing in a "results based business" you're never going to develop anyone. With prospects it should be a "process based business". Jerking R. Smith around the lineup from the bottom-6, to the top-6, to the PK, to the PP, to the press box etc. is just going to make the kid's head spin.
