Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell says Senior Bowl experience greatly helped draft preparation

The Jaguars hoped to be ahead of the game in their draft preparation after coaching the South team during the Senior Bowl.

Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell believes that mission was accomplished last week in Mobile, Ala. Coach Gus Bradley and his staff guided the South to a 20-10 victory on Saturday over the North, coached by the Atlanta Falcons. However, the biggest prize was the time the Jaguars coaches and scouting department got to spend with the roughly 110 players.

That time will allow the Jaguars to sharpen their focus as they build their board for May's draft. Besides the senior class, NFL teams must evaluate a record 102 players (98 underclassmen) who gave up college eligibility to enter the draft.

"There were 110 guys there that we now feel good about," Caldwell said. "Generally, some of those guys we'd be interested in working out or bringing in for a visit. We don't have to do that with a lot of those guys, because we had them for a week. There's not that much more that we need to know about those players in terms of a workout or interview."
