Not sure how much the Capologist needs to know about football, really. I would expect he probably needs to be a cross between a lawyer and an accountant.

I think basically he's probably a statistician - his job is to create a mathematical model for cap management and apply it. He probably asks scouts and coaches to assign various numerical values to a player - Madden ability scores, basically. Actual player assessment is no part of what he does.
