Games that the Cincinnati Bengals scouting staff are reportedly attending in the first week of the college football season.
College football kicked off Thursday night with a handful of games that followed on Friday. However Saturday is the true kickoff for the college football season, with hundreds of teams playing in front of millions upon millions. It's kind of awesome because laziness actually serves a purpose for Saturday. However it's also the start of the scouting season, which will cumulate to the 2013 NFL draft. You can bet that the Cincinnati Bengals, along with 31 other NFL teams, will be checking out the powerhouses, but here are a few games that Bengals scouts are attending.
According to NFL draft expert Chris Steuber, the Cincinnati Bengals are sending scout(s) Toledo at Arizona and Kentucky at Louisville. Keep in mind that this list is one of those that evolves as information trickles through.
