    "The draft is basically 10% good, 10% bad, 80% that all look alike," Brandt said. "A housewife can tell you the good ones; a housewife can tell you the bad ones. The trick is getting the guys in the middle."

    its always that way, thats why its important to have good scouts, and your coaches looking at these players in college senior bowl/east west game

    lol, that's the funniest part. He wanted to say someone that knows nothing about sports can tell you the top and bottom 10%, and the first thing that came to his mind was a housewife.

    Because as we all know, all they know , they are uneducated and only know how to cook and clean.

    Apparently even pro scouts AND housewives don't always get it right either! You figure the first overall pick in the draft (say, someone like Ki-Jana Carter) would be part of the 10% good. :laugh2:

    Yeah, I don't know, I think that's a bit oversimplified by Brandt. You could look at any college highlight tape of even an undraftable type player and people be like "wow, that kid can play."

    It happens every year. I remember people proclaiming guys like Troy Smith and Mike Hart as the Second Comings...

    Hard to say how good Carter could have been if not for the injury.
