I have a tremendous amount of respect for Button because he scouts these guys so heavily in person.
McKenzie's rankings are based off of a consensus of scouts (I think 10) he surveys for the rankings. He has zero input in the rankings.
Button gets criticized because his rankings aren't consensus with the scouting services. Personally, I like his rankings and tend to agree with the points he raises.
