 MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons and Jacksonville Jaguars have been selected to coach the Senior Bowl, giving their staffs an up-close look at potential draft picks.

The game is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 25 in Mobile.

It's the third time the Falcons have coached the Senior Bowl (1967, 1978) and the second time for the Jaguars (2009).

The Falcons (4-12) will coach the North team. Coach Mike Smith says the week of practice "provides a great opportunity to get to know these players on a personal level."

The Jaguars (4-12) will coach the South team. Coach Gus Bradley calls it "a great evaluation tool. ... I don't want to make a habit of it, but as long as we have this opportunity, we need to take advantage of it."
