The BCS Championship game kicks off tonight on ESPN, colliding national powers between the Notre Dame Fight Irish and the Alabama Crimson Tide. Oh, O-H-I-O. Fine time to go undefeated. The Cincinnati Bengals have a handful of players with an intense interest tonight with Andre Smith, Dre Kirkpatrick and Wallace Gilberry sporting crimson and Trevor Robinson wearing blue and gold.

If you're looking for a preview, check out SB Nation's Dan Kadar's analysis, especially if you're doing your own scouting.

When Alabama is on offense, take your eyes off the ball when possible and focus on left guard Chance Warmack. The powerhouse left guard is currently rated as our third-best prospect in the nation and is the top player in the game. Warmack dominated SEC defensive linemen because he's quick off the snap, agile and strong.

...

For NFL teams looking for a versatile weapon on offense, Notre Dame has one in Theo Riddick. A running back/wide receiver combo player, Riddick can line up in several areas on the field and can exploit matchup advantages. In the NFL he may be used more as a runner, but Riddick has the speed and hands to line up in the slot.

As for the Bengals needing a linebacker, one could always daydream of Manti Te'o or perhaps the more reasonably accessible C.J. Mosley. You can also find our latest mock draft here.
