In this very special episode of the RosterWatch podcast, Alex Dunlap is joined by New Reese’s Senior Bowl Executive Director Jim Nagy. During this long-form conversation, Nagy discusses his background as a scout and how it has prepared him for his current position, what scouts look for in players in All-Star settings and lots of general behind-the-curtain insight from someone who has spent a career in football evaluation at the highest levels. The two also go through the 2019 Senior Bowl rosters at the RB and WR positions to give a primer on a very talented group of skill-position players heading to Mobile this year.
Jim Nagy took over as executive director of the Senior Bowl in June 2018 after spending 18 years in the National Football League. In his time in the NFL, Nagy worked as an area scout in the West, Midwest, and Southeast regions, as well as in a national scouting capacity for four years with the Kansas City Chiefs. He was a part of six Super Bowl teams and four Lombardi Trophy winning clubs (Green Bay Packers XXXI, New England Patriots XXXVIII and XXXIX and Seattle Seahawks XLVIII). Prior to his time in the NFL, Nagy worked for a sports agency in New York City representing NFL players and had various jobs in the media, including a consultant role on the NFL Today pregame show on CBS and writing his own football column in The Sporting News magazine. He graduated from the University of Michigan and his family has resided in Mobile, Ala., since 2007.
