While that might work for film analysis, it sure doesn't account for gems like - "Me first", "not a leader by example or known to inspire by his words", "too much of a follower" "Not a student of the game" "Nonchalant field presence does not command respect from teammates and cannot inspire" "Mild practice demeanor no urgency" "sets a bad example", "not depandable".

Even better is when those takes differ drastically from those who know, coach and have actaully spent time with the player in question.

He's trying to be the scout equivalent of a shock jock. While it might be entertaining, it's useless as a source of actual news.
Clearly you're guessing and really don't know. Nawrocki collects his information by delving deep like actual real scouts do. Nawrocki contacts friends, family, coaches, associates, students, teammates etc. That is where he collects and gathers information on perspective players. A very common practice by full time NFL scouts. When you getting ready to sign someone to a multi year multi million $ contract you want to know more than just how fast they can run on a football field. Nawrocki gives you that experience whether you like or agree with it or not. What Nawrocki is writing is what is being said on a daily basis throughout NFL scouting offices across the league.
