    Scouts are just used for confirmation to the GM who, depending on style, uses them anonymously or brings them to the table equally. In Texans case I agree, think those two sit down (Gaine/O’Brian) assign position coaches to key pro days and have all hands on board @ Senior Bowl and Combine.

    Whoa, bass ackwards. The scouts primary role is 1st cut not last. They're the guys who thru the college football season are the initial data gatherers watching, identifying, evaluating & narrowing.

    What part? Report to GM. Some all the way others not. No grey line.

    You said "confirmation." That's done at the end of a process. Scouts' primary work is at the beginning.

    Confirmation of beginning not end.

    My question is: where does that shiny, new offensive coordinator fit in? Did he identify what tools the prospects need for his side of the ball to be successful? Did he have input on setting the draft board?
    Or was he stuck with whoever Gaine/O'Brien decided to draft?

    OC name only as he learns and OBrien learns to trust him not to blow games.
