Snead Knows What to Look For in College Players
How a player runs, how high they jump, how much weight they can lift; there are a ton of questions to answer next week, but before Rams General Manager Les Snead even walks through the door, he’s done most of his research. Katie Felts interviews Snead.
Les is excellent as always.

Re: Snead Knows What to Look For in College Players
Let's be honest: There is a lot of luck involved with being a GM. Certainly, some are better than others, but nearly every GM out there can identify NFL talent. What they can't POSSIBLY know is how each draftee will improve and whether or not they will stay healthy. This is all guesswork.
I'm impressed with Snead, and the early returns on him as a GM are very promising. But we need to wait 3-4 years, just as we would with any player, to see exactly HOW good he is. Most would agree his first draft with Fisher was pretty successful. The key is doing it again and again, piecing several good drafts together to build this thing.
