Jon Gruden’s Raiders staff is preparing this week to head to Mobile Alabama to coach the North team in the Senior Bowl. This will give him and his staff the most up close and personal look at a whole host of NFL prospects, offering him a unique advantage in scouting them.
The roster of players he is set to coach has been released. Here they are:
This the fourth time Jon Gruden has brought a staff to coach the Senior Bowl, so he knows the value in coaching the game.
“If we can eliminate 2 or 3 players by coaching the Senior Bowl, sometimes that’s just as important as finding 2 or 3 guys that you really want,” Gruden said earlier this month. “But we’re really excited. It will be the 4th time that I’ve done it and we have to do a good job in this draft and the best way to do it is to be as close as possible to the players.”
Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers staff will be coaching the South team in the game.
