The St. Louis Rams reached for running back Isaiah Pead with the No. 50 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
St. Louis should have went another way with this pick with so many holes to fill and so many strong prospects still on the board, but Pead does have the ability to be a breakaway threat in the NFL, and will fit in well as a complement to Steven Jackson. Should immediately slide into No. 2 spot on the depth chart, and Pead is worth handcuffing when you consider that Jackson turns 29 in July and has played a full 16 games in just two of his eight seasons so far.
