Senior Bowl 2020 Game Day

Senior Bowl 2020 Game Day

Frank Coyle – Head scout Draft Insiders’

The 2020 Senior Bowl game is here with an interesting roster of pro prospects who completed the week of practices, physicals and interviews.

        The Draft Insiders’ February Newsletter and 2020 Yearbook will have extensive coverage of the Senior Bowl and the entire All-star postseason.

Look for QBs Justin Hebert, Jordan Love and Jalen Hurts to get extensive playing time while wideouts Michael Pittman, Chase Claypool and James Proche are expected to be featured in the passing game. TEs Brycen Hopkins and Adam Tautman had impressive practice sessions and could be featured in the passing game.

Runners, Lamical Perine, Antonio Gibson and Ke’Shawn Vaughn may not be household names, but should be featured here and given a chance to display their natural talent and capable of being impact playmakers Saturday. Perine is a well rounded back who can be a difference maker here.

The NFL Draft 2020 is a class dominated by defensive front seven prospects and this game features several impact pass rushers. DT Javon Kinlaw of South Carolina had a dominant performance thru mid week, but will sit out the game due to a minor injury.  Marlon Davidson is primed for a huge effort and created continuous havoc in matchups. Look for edge rushers, Jason Strowbridge and Kenny Willekes to provide impact as outside rushers and possible difference makers in this game.

Linebackers, Malik Harrison, Evan Weaver and Anfernee Jennings showed speed, instincts and playmaking ability this week after fine careers. Look to them to be in the action throughout the contest to be the stars on their units. This will be the final real football action in these prospects for the year with the offseason workout portion of the NFL Draft process hitting full stride next week both with the NFL Combine and school Pro Days.

The Reese’s Senior Bowl Week 2020

The Reese’s Senior Bowl Week 2020

Cincinnati Bengals and Detroit Lions Coaching Staffs Head 2020 Senior Bowl

The Reese’s Senior Bowl week 2020 is here. The Senior Bowl is the nation’s most prestigious college all-star game because it is the only one coached by entire staffs from two National Football League clubs.  The participating teams are prioritized based on the NFL draft order with the main caveat being that teams must have a full staff in place, which generally precludes teams with coaching turnover to participate. The Cincinnati Bengals and Detroit Lions coaching staffs will participate this season. The coaching staffs get a hands on view of 50 players per team on a regimented practice schedule and personal coaching providing valuable insight to a player’s athleticism, aptitude and readiness for the NFL game.

 Cincinnati Bengals and Detroit Lions Named Coaching Staffs Head 2020 Reese’s Senior Bowl

 The Reese’s Senior Bowl is less than two weeks away and the rosters are filling quickly.

They announced earlier that the NFL League Office has assigned the Cincinnati Bengals and Detroit Lions as the coaching staffs for the 71st annual Reese’s Senior Bowl to be played on January 25, 2020 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama.  The Bengals and Lions own the Nos. 1 and 3 picks respectively in the 2020 NFL Draft.

 For the Complete All-star Game Schedule go to NFL 2020 Calendar and Dates under NFL News

 The Reese’s Senior Bowl is the nation’s most prestigious college all-star game because it is the only one coached by entire staffs from two National Football League clubs.  The participating teams are prioritized based on the NFL draft order with the main caveat being that teams must have a full staff in place, which generally precludes teams with coaching turnover to participate, as was the case this year with the Washington Redskins, who own the No. 2

The last time the Bengals coached the Reese’s Senior Bowl was 2011 under Marvin Lewis and the Lions last participated in 2013 when Jim Schwartz was the head coach.

Coaching in the Reese’s Senior Bowl gives each staff a unique behind-the-scenes look at the players, not only on the field but also in the meeting rooms. This access is invaluable in the evaluation process and it has helped shape many draft classes over the years.  The most recent example is this year’s Oakland Raiders, who had eight Reese’s Senior Bowl alums on the active roster or practice squad this season.

 Last year, the Reese’s Senior Bowl produced 93 total draft picks, including 40 in the first three rounds and 10 first-round selections.  That roster included rookie standouts QB Daniel Jones (Giants), QB Drew Lock (Broncos), QB Gardner Minshew (Jaguars), WR Terry McLaurin (Redskins), WR Deebo Samuel (49ers), OL Elgton Jenkins (Packers), OL Erik McCoy (Saints), DL Montez Sweat (Redskins), DB Darnell Savage (Packers).

 Draft Insiders’ will have extensive scouting evaluation from the Senior Bowl and in the early February Newsletter and Yearbook.

Senior Bowl 2019 Game Day – Players to Watch

Senior Bowl 2019 Game Day

Frank Coyle – Head scout Draft Insiders’

  The 2019 Senior Bowl game is here with an interesting roster of pro prospects who completed the week of practices, physicals and interviews.

 QB Will Grier of West Virginia is primed for a big game after a strong week of practices. He gets the advantage of working with his two top receivers, David Sills and Greg Jennings in this game. This trio put up incredible numbers over their careers in the pass happy Big 12 Conference. Grier is prepared for this game and has the makings of an MVP candidate. QB Trace McSorley also came ready to play and is focused on this game to prove he belongs with the top prospects. He is a smart savvy leader who can be a difference maker in this All-star event.

Look for wideouts Deebo Samuel, Travis Fulgham and David Sills along with runners Dexter Williams and Wes Hills to be featured in their offenses with chances to be impact playmakers Saturday.

The NFL Draft 2019 is a class dominated by defensive front seven prospects and this game features several impact pass rushers. Look for edge rushers Montez Sweat, Oshane Ximines, L.J Collier and Ben Banogu to provide impact as outside rushers to be difference makers in this game. Linebackers, Hanks, Pratt and Coney showed speed, instincts and playmaking ability this week after fine careers. Look to them to be in the action throughout the contest to be the stars on their units. This will be the final real football action in these prospects for the year with the offseason workout portion of the NFL Draft process hitting full stride next week.

Senior Bowl Report – Wednesday Practices Move Inside Due to Weather

Senior Bowl 2019

Wednesday’s practices moving to South Alabama University
Statement from Reese’s Senior Bowl Executive Director Jim Nagy:

“Because of potential bad weather on Wednesday, we have decided to move practices to South Alabama’s new indoor facility. Our number one priority is always player safety.

North 12:30 pm-2:30 pm
South 3:00 pm-5:00 pm

They are closed to media and the public on Wednesday.

Raiders and 49ers Coaching Staffs Direct 2019 Senior Bowl Teams

Raiders and 49ers Coaching Staffs Direct Senior Bowl Teams

The Senior Bowl announced this week that the Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers have been selected by the NFL as the two coaching staffs for the 2019 All-star classic in Mobile, Ala. They are the two highest teams drafting with coaching staffs intact for the upcoming 2019 season.

 This marks the 70th year the NFL will send two of its full coaching staffs to the game’s premier all-star and pre-draft event. Reese’s Senior Bowl week starts on Monday, January 21st and concludes with the 70th annual Reese’s Senior Bowl on January 26th at 1:30 pm CT at Ladd-Peebles Stadium.

 “The Reese’s Senior Bowl is excited to have the two Bay Area teams coaching in our 70th annual game,” said Reese’s Senior Bowl Executive Director Jim Nagy.  “The Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers are both iconic franchises. With eight Super Bowl victories between them, the Raiders and Niners are historic brands of the league and the Senior Bowl is honored to have them at our game this year.”

 The 49ers will coach the South team and have coached the Reese’s Senior Bowl five times, last coaching in the game in 2008, ending a stretch of three consecutive coaching appearances (Mike Nolan 2006-08). They also coached in 1975 (Dick Nolan) and 1981 (Bill Walsh).

 The Raiders, who will lead the North team, have also coached in the Reese’s Senior Bowl five times previously – 1992 (Art Shell), 1999 (Jon Gruden), 2005 (Norv Turner), 2008 (Lane Kiffin) and 2013 (Dennis Allen).

 Both the Raiders and 49ers finished with 4-12 records in 2018. The 49ers hold the second overall pick and the Raiders will select fourth in April’s 2019 NFL Draft.

 Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden will be coaching in the Reese’s Senior Bowl for the fourth time. He coached the North team as the Raiders head coach in 1999, falling to Bucs’ coach Tony Dungy and the South, 31-21. He then coached in the game twice as the head coach of the Bucs, in 2005 and 2007, going 1-1 in those games.

  “We’re fired up to have Jon Gruden back in Mobile,” Nagy said. “He brings such rare energy and passion to the game of football.  This is a unique opportunity for our fans to see and hear coach Gruden at field level during our practice week.”

 Gruden, 55, returned to coaching this season after spending nearly a decade in the broadcast booth. Gruden compiled a 95-81 (.540) regular season mark in his 12 seasons as a head coach with the Raiders (1999-2001, 2018) and Bucs (2002-2008) and a 5-4 postseason mark, which includes a victory in Super Bowl XXXVII.

 When he was initially hired by Al Davis with the Raiders in 1998, he was the youngest coach in the league at age 34 and posted a 38-26 record, leading the silver and black to back-to-back AFC West titles in 2000 and 2001, including a trip to the AFC Championship game in 2000.

 “The Oakland Raiders are excited to coach in the premier all-star game in the land,” Gruden said. “The opportunity to interact with the Senior Bowl rosters and help these great young men achieve their dreams has the entire Raider staff galvanized. We could not be more pumped to get to Mobile.”

 Shanahan, 39, who will coach the South, will be making his head coaching debut in the Senior Bowl, but coached twice in the game previously as an assistant. Ironically, his first coaching experience in the Reese’s Senior Bowl was in 2005 as the Offensive Quality Control Coordinator for Gruden with the Bucs. In 2012, he returned to Mobile as the Offensive Coordinator of the Washington Redskins, under his father Mike Shanahan.

 “Our players are lucky to have the opportunity to be around coach Shanahan and his staff for a week,” Nagy said. “He is one of the brightest offensive minds in the game today and the Reese’s Senior Bowl is excited that our fans will get an up-close look at how he prepares players.  In addition, we are excited to have a great football man like General Manager John Lynch around our game all week, as well.”

 “The Senior Bowl is a tremendous opportunity for NFL teams to get a firsthand look at some of the top college prospects, and the City of Mobile has always been a gracious host,” Lynch said. “The opportunity to coach these young men is an invaluable asset to our evaluation process and one that we are excited to have. We look forward to getting to know these guys personally while working with them on the practice field, in meetings and even in the dining facilities.”

 Shanahan has 15 seasons of coaching experience in the NFL, the past two as the 49ers’ head coach, where he has compiled a 10-22 record. Prior to his first head coaching position, he served as the offensive coordinator for the Atlanta Falcons (2015-2016), Cleveland Browns (2014), Washington Redskins (2010-2013) and Houston Texans (2008-2009).

 Following the 2016 season, in which the Falcons appeared in Super Bowl LI, Shanahan was named the Associated Press Assistant Coach of the Year.
