Jaguars and Falcons to coach Senior Bowl teams


Two teams moving in opposite directions in 2013 will be in the same place in late January — Mobile.

The Senior Bowl announced the Jan. 25 college all-star game would be coached by the staffs of the Jaguars and the Falcons.

Coaching the teams give those staffs a head start on draft preparation, as they get a chance to see beyond a players’ measurables and into practice habits, interactions with teammates and coaches, and other intangible markers.

“We have had the opportunity to spend a lot of time at the Senior Bowl over the last six years, but this is the first time we will have the chance to coach the game,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said. “The week of practice provides a great opportunity to get to know these players on a personal level, but being able to coach these young men will give us the ability to work hands on with them and evaluate them.”

The Falcons were coming off five straight winning seasons before injuries dropped them to 4-12.

The Jaguars finished with the same record, but the feeling is completely different, as coach Gus Bradley had his team playing well down the stretch.

The Jaguars pick third overall, and the Falcons sixth.

    If I was a college player and found out that these 2 coaching staffs are going to be there I would decline to show up.
