I would think that is the job of the GM. Get the need list (i.e., the type of players they need for their scheme) from the coaches, input from the scouting staff on who best fills those needs, and make the moves necessary to snag as many of the guys on the shopping list as possible. And as a bonus, make draft day trades that result in extra picks. Once those picks are made, get the rookies signed up in time for camp.
