Two college all star games will take place this afternoon and not only will they feature some great talent, but the Bengals have plucked players from these games for their roster annually.
The East-West Shrine game is first up on NFL Network. Bengals wide receiver Cody Core played in the game last year. As did linebacker Darien Harris who spent the offseason with the Bengals.
