When you can make your OC decision, show them off at the Senior Bowl, and keep everyone guessing as to who you hired (both of them), then you know that a team has a tight grip on keeping information within the team. The only "fly on the wall" is the agent or the player/family.

In past years, teams could summon 30 non-local draft prospects to team headquarters, and I made it a mission to uncover those clandestine visits. Miami often drafted or later signed players that visited.https://www.miamiherald.com/sports/spt- ... 30580.html
But this season, there are no 30 visits permitted because of COVID. And there is no limit on the number of players that any team can interview virtually.
According to an NFL spokesman, teams can interview an unlimited number of players but can do no more than five video sessions with any one player.
So unlike past years, you won’t be seeing reports — here or anywhere — that Miami has displayed interest in a draft prospect by flying him to team headquarters because there will be no such visits.
And while that might curtail the type of pre-draft fodder that many fans love, that helps the Dolphins’ in their perpetual attempt to keep their business out of public view.
