    Jim Nagy, executive director of the Senior, said NFL head coaches, general managers, position coaches and scouts that will be on hand have an expectation for those Bulldogs’ players.They are so bought in, it’s so competitive,” Nagy told DawgNation. “The NFL knows what they are getting from those guys.”

   The Senior Bowl practices and interviews leading up to the game on Saturday (TV: 2:30 p.m., NFL Network) areas valuable as the contest itself.The senior bowl is real football, the whole NFL community is down here, we credentialed close to 1,000 NFL people last year,” said Nagy, who spent 20 years as an NFL scout before becoming the executive director of the Senior Bowl.

   Nagy explained why so many elite players like Heisman Trophy runner-up Michael Penix Jr. and finalist Bo Nix, take part in the annual showcase.

   There’s a difference between scouts being on board with you and going through the school and seeing your games, as opposed to the guys that are going to be making the picks in April,” Nagy said.

    “When you get NFL GMs, head coaches, and position coaches and coordinators on board throughout the process, it’s huge, and this is the one time they get a chance to really be around these players in a relaxed setting.”

   Nagy said the NFL combine has its value with players having medical evaluations along with the running, jumping and lifting testing, but it’s also “very corporate, and you don’t get very much time with the player at all.”

   In Mobile, players will breakaway for interviews with head coaches and general managers when they aren’t being drilled by NFL coaches at practice Tuesday through Thursday and learning new concepts.

   As much as the players’ performance matters, Being able to coach NFL style and quickly grasp schemes and concepts is essential to a player’s career.

Georgia players are the most consistent when Kirby Smart runs various NFL concepts on offense and defense.

   Nagy has been at the helm as the Bulldogs have developed into one of the most talented programs in the country, producing 24 NFL draft picks over the past two years and an expected 10 or more this year.
“It’s great to see Kirby work,” Nagy said.
“I knew him from Alabama, so seeing the situation in Georgia didn’t happen overnight.
“I think this will be a very good week for them.
