John Dorsey continues to embrace Packers draft philosophy

INDIANAPOLIS–John Dorsey graduated from the Ron Wolf/Ted Thompson school of scouting, and he continues to embrace what he learned.

What does it mean to be a true scout?

“Well, it’s the ability to evaluate talent. I think Ted, too, is a real scout. He’s had a history of evaluating and selecting really good players and I think that’s what you do as this process unfolds,” Dorsey said during his media interview at the scouting combine.

Dorsey was in his first season as general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013 and helped take the team from the worst record in the league to the playoffs.

What’s his process?

“Every year you go through the draft process, regardless of if you’re selecting one or 23. You begin to build your board and then you begin to identify certain players that will unfold at certain slots. Then, as you go through, you can determine who these players are that fit the criteria that you have set up and that’s how that unfolds and you do have to be disciplined. When you build through the draft, discipline is so critical because you have to take the best player available, not thinking instantaenously but also thinking two years, three years down the road.”

Does Dorsey draft need or best player available?

“I think history has shown that if you stay true to that model, the best player usually will prevail.”

It’s a philosophy Dorsey learned in Green Bay.
