I think that the percentage should be even lower because coaches and scouts choose players that they like, and robots can't since they have no emotions. Although robots can be smarter about making the right play or having a better strategy than humans, there is no way a robot can do everything a human coach could do.

A robot may be a better strategist than a human, but I doubt it.
