Senior Bowl: Should NFL Coaching Staffs Get to Coach Senior Bowl Teams?

New, comments
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

This week is the Senior Bowl, where the top NFL Draft prospects convene on Mobile, Alabama to get evaluated by NFL teams in practices and a game. As has become custom, the two teams are run by actual NFL coaching staffs. This year the Cowboys staff is coaching the North team, and the Jaguars staff is coaching the South team. Should NFL teams have this type of access?

To be certain, all 32 teams have some degree of access to the players this week. Should two teams get a chance to let their coaches work this closely with players and put them through drills, though?

This isn't the norm for other college all-star games. At last week's East-West Shrine game, the two teams were coached by Charlie Weis and June Jones. Those are coaches with both pro and college experience who were out of football in 2015.

What do you think?
