Bengals scout gets spotlight in NFL Network special

Posted Apr 9, 2014

Bengals scout Bill Tobin, who ran drafts that selected five Hall-of-Famers, has a high profile in the NFL Network’s upcoming “Caught in the Draft,” special.

Starting this Wednesday at 9 p.m. with the 1964 episode, the series looks at the drafts of ‘64, 1974 (April 16), 1984 (April 23), 1994 (April 30), and 2004 (May 7) in the run-up to this year’s May 8-10 draft.

Tobin, best known for building the Bears of the 1980s, scouts the Midwest for the Bengals after a career that saw him work as an executive in Chicago, Indianapolis, and Detroit during six decades in the game. He sat down with the crew back in January at the East-West All-Star Game and is part of all five episodes.

    If Tony Perez was the Mayor of Riverfront Stadium, then Bernie Stowe was the Sage of Cinergy Field who tucked away Riverfront and Crosley Field into eternity with the same tender loving care he christened Great American Ball Park. When Stowe, the Reds’ long-time clubhouse man, died earlier this week it was a blow felt on both sides of The Banks, where in a galaxy far, far away his team and the Bengals once shared a stadium.
