A pair of college football all-star games are on deck as the NFLPA Bowl and East-West Shrine Game kick off today.

The Cincinnati Bengals will actually have a coaching presence in the Shrine Game, where tight ends coach Jonathan Hayes will serve as head coach of the East Team. This game is set to begin on the NFL Network at 3 p.m. ET from Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.

This game will feature NFL Draft-eligible players that range from the Round 3-7 range in the upcoming draft, including former Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett.

Then at 4 p.m. ET, the annual NFLPA Bowl will kick off at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. It will be broadcast on FS1 as the annual spotlight of draft-eligible prospects sponsored by the NFL Players Association.

This year’s most notable names include quarterback Kenny Hill, who led TCU to an 11-3 record and could be a late Day 3 selection.
