NCAA Football: NFLPA Collegiate Bowl Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

The NFLPA Bowl takes place this Saturday at the StubHub Center on the campus of California State University Dominguez Hills, and it will feature a host of NFL-hopefuls looking to get on the radars of professional teams.

The week-long schedule provides participants with a first-class professional experience while introducing them to the business of the NFL. Founded in 2012, the annual game gives prospective NFL players a great opportunity to showcase their talents to potential employers and fans.

Scouts from every NFL club and other professional leagues attend the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl’s practices and game. Among the former NFLPA Bowl players who’ve spent time with the Bengals include defensive backs Erick Dargan and Troy Hill, wide receiver, Mario Alford, defensive tackle Kalafitoni Pole, wide receiver Jake Kumerow, defensive tackle DeShawn Williams, running back Terrell Watson, and wide receiver Alonzo Russell.

Since its inception, many guys who play in the game have gone on to begin careers in professional football. Notable Collegiate Bowl alumni include Seahawks quarterback Trevone Boykin, Raiders punter Marquette King, Chiefs wide receiver Chris Conley, and Chargers linebacker Jatavis Brown.

Participants in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl have the unique opportunity to network with and learn from current and former NFL players. These veterans give players first-hand insight on what it takes to win on- and off-the-field.

This will be one of several college all-star games in the coming weeks, and you can bet at least on future Bengals will be in this game, even if it’s someone who is just with the team during the offseason.

Two former Bengals player will also be in attendance as T.J. Houshmandzadeh will be coaching the American team wide receivers and Jon Kitna will be the offensive coordinator for the National team.
