Talent Evaluation in the margins

So evaluating high 4 stars and 5 stars is probably not the most difficult thing. But I’ve notice that championship teams have often successfully evaluated and developed lesser rated guys. Example: Jordan Davis, Ladd McConkey, Stetson Bennet, Jamaal Anderson( lower draft pick led falcons to 98 NFC championship) and need I say 6th round draft pick Tom Brady. I believe that skilled evaluators like Kirby excel in the margins were other people aren’t properly assessing those lower rated guys. The best coaches like Kirby get their share of top guys but they fill out the team with guys that other folks missed on because they can just evaluate better.

I got to thinking about this due to the anonymous coach trashing Ladd. I figured that coach ain’t as good as Kirby and never will be. Am I way off?
