This is why you can go around a room of scouts who have evaluated draft prospect X almost identically, but one has him 15th, another 25th, another 50th.
Thus I talk to scouts for information, but the ranking process is done solely on my own. I'm pretty confident in my info and process, although in terms of less confidence, the players over in Europe will always be a bit of a challenge to get viewings so I lean on some overseas sources. Klefbom and Jarnkrok are good examples.
Very cool how you come here and answer questions like this. Much appreciated.
