The NFL is a tough business, but you don’t have to spend all of your time worrying about it.
Instead, the league’s scouting department is focused on the biggest prize of all: winning a Super Bowl.
The 49ers, whose roster currently has three first-round picks, have been in the thick of the race to secure that coveted prize for years, but it’s finally beginning to feel like they’re on the verge of winning.
As the NFL’s scouting departments have grown, so too have the talent on the roster.
And now, as the 49ers prepare for their first offseason program in more than five years, it’s clear that they’re in the driver’s seat.
The scouting department, which is comprised of a wide variety of scouts, personnel evaluators, quarterbacks coaches, offensive line coaches, linebackers coaches, defensive backs coaches, and other scouts, has the resources, the players, and the people to become a Super-team.
They are the ones who have to build a winning culture.
The 49ers don’t want to do it.
They don’t know what they need to do.
The only way to get there is to find the right coach, pick the right quarterback, and have a good quarterback play.
They can’t do it alone, though.
That’s why they’re hiring an outside firm to help them do it, and it’s why the 49er brass is trying to hire a quarterback guru.
The man behind the operation is Joe DeCamillis, who was the 49-year-old quarterback coach at Florida State from 2008 to 2011.
He is the highest-paid head coach in the NFL and was paid more than $2.7 million in 2016, according to Spotrac.
DeCamills work for DeCamillas own team, the Jacksonville Jaguars.
He also is the coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the NFL team he led from 2011 to 2014.
As far as the scouting department goes, the 49es’ first-rounder in 2017 is Alabama defensive lineman Leonard Floyd, who is projected to be the No. 2 overall pick.
He’s a 6-foot-3, 300-pound defensive end who has a ton of potential.
He has good hands, and he’s a good athlete, but Floyd needs to get stronger.
The coaching staff has been told that Floyd is in the range of 260 pounds, which will make him bigger than his listed 5-foot, 11-inch frame.
The team will need to build around Floyd, which means they’ll need to recruit, develop and develop the players that fill that need.
That will take time.
But the 49s are also going to need to be patient.
Floyd is the first player in NFL history to be drafted in the first round, and they have no shortage of potential players to choose from.
There are a couple of things that the 49ies will need from the coaching staff to succeed.
One is a young quarterback.
The team is already in the process of hiring a new quarterback, but if the team is going to be a contender in the AFC West in the near future, they will need a young one to carry the load.
They can’t rely on the talent that the past four drafts produced, but they will have to be prepared to make a significant investment in that area.
The other part of the equation is that they need a quarterback who can run the ball well.
The NFL has a shortage of talented quarterbacks.
If the 49ys are to have a successful draft, they’ll have to find a quarterback that can make plays with the ball in his hands.
The coaching staff, which has an incredible amount of experience and a long history of success, knows what it takes to get to that point.
But they need help.
The first-time head coach will be the perfect guy to help.
He knows how to run the offense, the playbook, and how to develop young players.
He’ll also have experience in scouting, personnel, and player development.
So when he arrives, the team should feel right at home.
A big part of being a good football team is being patient.
When the 49 is winning, the focus is always on the future.
This is why you can be patient, and that’s why Joe DeCamps hires a coach with that mindset.
He wants to build the team into a championship contender, and to do that, he’ll need a veteran coach who has the knowledge and experience to make the right moves.
