The scouts are watching games night in and night out. You think BM is out watching all the draft eligible players every night? Or flying to Europe to watch players play there throughout the season? Of course not. BM has a huge hand in picking the players in the sense that he decides what needs on the team have to be addressed. But the scouts are the ones telling him the strengths and weaknesses of each player, projected potential, etc. Gms don't have time to be watching and analyzing the players to the extent the scouts do. Of course he's at the top prospects game cause they are all playing at once. But the scouts watch these players throughout the season.
