A guy i really like as a late round prospect is Isaiah Pead . He is not a power back but he runs tougher than he should for his size .
Height: 5-10. Weight: 193.
Projected 40 Time: 4.41.
Arm: 31. Hand: 8 5/8.
All in all the guy had 545 rushs for 3288 yards and 27 TD's giving him a 6 yard average over his 4 year college career .His catching stats are 87 receptions for 721 yards and 6TD's average 8.3 yards a reception .In 2011 Pead averaged 5.3 yards per carry with 1,259 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns. He also caught 39 passes for 319 yards and three scores. In 2010 he ran for 1,029 yards and six scores while averaging 6.6 yards per carry. He caught 26 passes for 190 yards and one touchdown last year.
This year Pead won Big East Player of the year and was the main part of his teams offense . I think we could use him as a replacement for LT as i see a lot of similar aspects to both their game . He is very agile and is really quick out of his cuts . He has the breakaway speed you look for in a RB . Another quality he has is his ability to be a very good pass blocker . He is really good a picking up the blitz .
His playmaking ablity doesn't end there . He can also be used as a KR and PR guy and i think he could excel under the best ST coach in the NFL .
Pead will be taken in the 4th or 5th round and i think any team that gets his will get themselves a steal . Should we be looking at Pead in this draft ? Well it depends on how Sparano sees our run game going .If he is looking for another ground and pound type of RB then Pead isn't the guy but if he is looking for another playmaker who has good pass blocking skills and got genuine breakaway speed then Pead makes a lot of sense as a potential addition to this team .
