Cobb Named NFC Scout of the Year

Posted by Taylor Price on January 4, 2012 – 6:10 PM

The San Francisco 49ers announced on Wednesday that veteran college scout Reggie Cobb has been named NFC Scout of the Year by the Fritz Pollard Alliance. Cobb will be honored, along with other award winners, at the Fritz Pollard Alliance’s Ninth Annual Awards Reception on February 24, 2012, in Indianapolis, Indiana.

“I have had the great privilege of working with Reggie while with the 49ers and the Redskins,” said 49ers General Manager Trent Baalke, “Reggie’s hard work, loyalty and professionalism are qualities I have always appreciated. It is very fitting for him to be recognized in this fashion.”

Cobb, who scouts the Western region for the 49ers, joined the team in 2009. He spent the previous six years scouting the Southwest region for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, after two seasons (2001-02) as a member of the Washington Redskins scouting department.

A former NFL running back, Cobb enjoyed a seven-year playing career that began as a second-round pick (30th overall) by the Buccaneers in 1990. He played his first four seasons (1990-93) with Tampa Bay before playing one season each with Green Bay (1994), Jacksonville (1995) and the N.Y. Jets (1996).

Cobb finished his college career ranked third on the University of Tennessee’s career rushing chart with 2,360 yards and 26 touchdowns. He was also a member of the school’s 100th anniversary team. Cobb lettered in track and graduated with a degree in urban studies in 1990.

    I wish article would have given details on why he was selected. I never knew there was such an award. Was it for draft recommendations.

    What a wonderful career Mr. Cobb. Starting at the University of Tenessee, and being the “30th” pick of the Bucaneers! The thrill of playing in the NFL and subsequently, becoming a Scout! What better way to “recruit talent” but by an ex-Football player….good for you!

    Stop looking at fantasy stats and look at the franchise single season record for 4th quarter comebacks (though this franchise housed Joe, Steve, and Jeff Garcia), tied lowest interception total in the history of the game, extremely high completion % even with back up widerecievers roaming the field, and having no elite receiver to even throw to. You’ll just have to bellyache and wee yourself in bed for years to come because Harbaugh already has his qb he wants to resign. Harbaugh is a better position to evaluate talent than ‘Jeromey of the entarwebz’.
