St. Louis Rams running back Isaiah Pead was featured on a recent "First and 10" post at ESPN. They asked the rookie running back a few pretty standard questions, the same questions the media has been asking him since at least the week of the draft. I know, I interviewed him at the NFLPA event the night before the draft and asked many of those same questions.

Anyway, there was one answer in Pead's interview that stood out, and I thought it was worth discussion. Asked about his offseason goals, Pead answered:

My offseason goal, really every year, is to get smarter. Working out, getting stronger, yeah, but getting smarter in the offseason is on you.

That's a particularly important task as he makes the jump to the NFL. Because of the league's ridiculous rules about graduation, he has not been able to participate in any of the Rams OTAs. He was allowed to participate in rookie minicamp. I believe this week will be his first. Pead has said before he expects to be attached to Steven Jackson as the veteran running back helps him adjust to life in the NFL.
