How are players selected?

The Senior Bowl’s year-round evaluation process begins in February with extensive tape study on college prospects and continues through the summer, with an initial 400-player watch list of returning starters and rising seniors released in late August.

Executive director Jim Nagy, who took over the role from former Browns GM Phil Savage in 2018, spearheads the identification, evaluation and selection of the top NFL prospects to be invited to the game and serves as a liaison to the agents representing those players.

According to the Senior Bowl website, the first round of 20 “automatic” invites are sent at the end of October and another 40 “priority” invites follow a few weeks later. By Dec. 1, the next group of 40 “in-season” invites have been mailed, allowing the Senior Bowl to finalize both rosters between the end of the regular season and the college bowl games. After the bowl games are concluded, “emergency” invites are used to fill any holes on either roster that develop due to injury.

Described as the “ultimate bridge between college and pro football,” the event aims to have a mixture of college standouts and potential prospects “with a particular interest in those that are rated above the fifth round.”
