Senior Bowl Executive Director Jim Nagy has signed an extension to return as an ESPN NFL Draft contributor. In his third NFL Draft season with ESPN, he will continue to provide analysis across a multitude of platforms. New in 2021, Nagy will also take part in original NFL Draft-focused programming on ESPN+. He returns Feb. 25 and will appear on SportsCenter Special: Mel Kiper’s NFL Mock Draft 2.0 and other shows.
“Jim is smart and insightful and his experiences scouting in the NFL and leading the Senior Bowl add a valuable dimension to our Draft coverage,” said Seth Markman, ESPN vice president, production. “In returning our veteran teammate Jim and welcoming in Matt Miller, we continue to demonstrate our dedication to the NFL Draft and serving our viewers.”
Nagy added, “I couldn’t be more excited to be re-joining ESPN’s talented team for coverage of the 2021 NFL Draft. Due to Covid’s impact on the NFL scouting process, this year’s draft will be as unpredictable as any we’ve seen. Looking forward to a fun next few months.”
A former NFL scout with nearly two decades worth of experience, Nagy has contributed to four Super Bowl Championship teams over the course of his career with the Washington Football Team, New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks.
Nagy is a native of Traverse City, Mich., and a graduate of the University of Michigan.
