Wisconsin football: Jack Coan already on the Senior Bowl’s radar

Wisconsin’s senior gunslinger is in some impressive company for a potential spot in the postseason game.

Now that the 2020 NFL Draft is over we can finally start looking ahead to the 2021 NFL Draft. The Packers still won’t draft a wide receiver, but y’all can at least have some hope for another year.

There are several Wisconsin Badgers who will probably be drafted next year, something which we will get into in a separate post, but the most important position for any NFL team is quarterback and having one drafted is equally important to the college from which that quarterback came.

The Senior Bowl, a post-season college football all-star game played each January in Mobile, Alabama, which showcases the best NFL Draft prospects of those players who have completed their college eligibility (thanks for the succinct description, Wikipedia), has already released a preliminary list of the signal callers they’ve already looked at for next year’s game.

Our very own Jack Coan is right in the thick of things! Coan completed nearly 70% of his passes, threw for 2,727 yards last year and also tossed 18 touchdowns, to only five picks, so he is a completely viable candidate for this all-star game.

I guess I don’t fully understand the rules of the team selections for the Senior Bowl since the top two players, Alabama’s Mac Jones and Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence, will both be juniors this season.

It’s also a bit shameful that Lawrence and Chase Brice both have names where you can’t tell which is the first name and which is the last name. Jack Coan is a solid, easy to understand name and that alone should make him a shoo-in for a roster spot.
