Am I correct with the assumption the good teams dont put any money in their college and HS scouting because those draft picks are going to be useless to them regardless anyways?
No. That is a broad statement, and those types of statements will get you into trouble in this game.
The answer to almost everything in HBD is "it depends what you're trying to do".
For an expensive (ideally good) team drafting in the high 20s or 30s, you don't have any money to compete for good IFAs, so the amateur draft can be your only chance to get youth into your system.
Of course if you plan to sign Type As almost every year, then amateur draft scouting is a waste of money.
But it depends.....
