It was announced via SiriusXM Radio today that the coaching staffs of the Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars will coach the two teams in the upcoming Senior Bowl exhibition. The Cowboys and Jaguars are slated to draft fourth and fifth, respectively, in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft. They are the first two teams in the draft order who have not had significant shake-ups to their coaching staff or front office, with the Tennessee Titans, Cleveland Browns, and San Diego Chargers ahead of them in the draft order.
Coaching the Senior Bowl is becoming something of a tradition for the Jaguars and their head coach Gus Bradley, as this is their third consecutive year coaching the Senior Bowl. The Jaguars have lately picked up valuable contributors in the later rounds of the draft, such as Telvin Smith, Allen Robinson, and undrafted Allen Hurns.
Senior Bowl practices and the game itself will be held late in January in Mobile, Alabama. Although the game is an exhibition, it is always closely evaluated around the NFL as teams prepare for the upcoming draft.
