Draft Scout Isaiah Pead News
07/30/14 - RB Isaiah Pead missed practice Tuesday with an undisclosed injury, but he was wearing a cast on his hand.
06/20/14 - RB Isaiah Pead has been almost a forgotten man since being drafted by the Rams in the second round of the 2012 draft.
In that rookie season, he was beaten out by Daryl Richardson, who got most of the carries when Steven Jackson was injured or needed a breather. Last year, with Jackson gone to Atlanta, Richardson opened the season as the starter, but when he suffered a toe injury, it was Zac Stacy that took over the No. 1 role.
Pead missed the first game of the season under league suspension, and then had virtually no role in the offense, as Benny Cunningham became the backup to Stacy. That's when Pead got tired of standing around and about halfway through the season approached special teams coordinator John Fassel about contributing on special teams.
"My mindset was simply wanting to get on the field," Pead said after this year's OTAs wrapped up Thursday. "I had no role. I was just standing on the sideline doing nothing. I'm a football player. I take it to heart when I have a role."
Not only did Pead begin playing on special teams, but he embraced the opportunity.
When asked about Pead, Fassel said, "I'm really glad you asked me that. When you think about him a lot and his development last year, how he really committed to special teams. Not only was he a contributor, he was a high-impact guy for us. I think a lot of people are going to see a lot of growth out of that guy, not only on teams, and I can't speak for offense, but I just imagine with his maturity, his work ethic, his ability I would imagine he's going to have a fantastic preseason and really been a good guy. I could speak on him a lot on how proud I am of him and his work ethic and his contributions last year, especially on special teams."
Even with the selection of running back Tre Mason in this year's draft, Pead has been getting a chance on offense in OTAs. He has been solid in pass protection, and had a big play on a long pass reception in the Tuesday OTA this week.
11/04/13 - RB Isaiah Pead was active for Sunday's game against the Titans, but did not play.
10/29/13 - RB Isaiah Pead has played in only three of the Rams' first eight games. A second-round pick in 2012, Pead was on the suspended list for the season opener and has been inactive for two games including Monday night against Seattle. In the two games prior to Monday, Pead was active, but did not play.
10/22/13 - RB Isaiah Pead had his second consecutive game where he was active, but did not play any snaps.
