That is "overseeing" how exactly? I'm sure the guy confers with the scouts and then gives Elway and Fox reports on players, but to say he has "overseen" anything is silly. Honestly, I don't buy for one second the guy does anything most of the scouts under him couldn't do more or less just as well.
And really, our drafts since the guy took over that position have been merely okay, nothing more.
