The greatest hiring event in sports begins tonight. Millions will tune in to watch hours and hours over the next 3 days of the NFL Draft. The 32 NFL teams will be choosing from among the most highly talented college athletes. Like your company, a team's roster is pretty fluid, which is why the Draft is so important. Every season a number of players retire or get cut, and every season a number of new players come into the game. The Draft determines which teams get which new players.
Scouts and coaches and owners have spent endless hours collecting and analyzing data, watching game footage of college students, interviewing players, agents, coaches, even parents. Every form of evaluation is helpful. The question is always the measurables (skills) vs. if he can play the position and how he will fit with the team. While your profession might not command that kind of money, you want to be every bit as selective as a coach in hiring your work team, so you can find the right person for the right job.
