The “National” and “American” teams will get on the field for peace in helmets and shoulder pads next Tuesday night, with the teams in full gear on Wednesday and Thursday.
Matt Rhule and the Carolina Panthers staff, who competed against UGA in the 2020 Sugar Bowl while with Baylor, will coach the Georgia players.
The NFL combine has been canceled this season on account of the pandemic, so teams will be limited to showcasing their skills at their respective Pro Days.
NFL general managers and personnel managers are not expected to attend Pro Day.
That makes the Senior Bowl and even more an important opportunity for players to get face-to-face interviews with the decision-makers.
LeCounte, a fan and media favorite, is among the most charismatic interviews in college football.
