I wouldn't necessarily say it's a bent crank. Usually on a bent crank both bearings on the bent journal will show rubbing not just one. It might however be a main on the block that's out of alignment. Pretty easy to check with a straight edge. The other thing to look at is the back of the bearing for anything that might have gotten behind it during final assembly.
