2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Isaiah Pead, RB, Cincinnati
Pead's best attributes are his versatility as both a runner and pass-catcher, in addition to his quickness. He can make the first man miss and quickly accelerate to daylight. Pead really shows multiple gears when taking off through open spaces. Although, a below average offensive line has made him exhibit choppy footwork when hitting the hole, and he needs to flow into running lanes more decisively.
Cincinnati uses him in the slot and out of the backfield to catch passes on occasion. He shows good hands and has no problems getting upfield fast.
Once in the NFL, he'll need to learn to drive his body with his hips and thighs. By bulking up his lower half, he'll be able to run through more arm tackles. His vision could be better, but that can be hindered by struggling blockers.
