Steal of the Draft

When we look back at this draft in about 3 seasons, we're all going to see who the steal of the draft truly will be. My opinion is: RB, Isaiah Pead, Cincinnati.

Isaiah Pead

The video doesn't do him much justice, but it shows what he's capable of. He has amazing vision, speed, burst, quickness, and fluidity. He brings something we haven't had at the RB position in many years. Not only a viable back-up, but somebody thats explosive, that can take it to the house off of any play, and somebody that will take over the ropes one day when Steven Jackson is done playing. The vision he has to make quick cuts into open holes is unreal. This is huge because all the 3 or 4 yard gains that he should have, he turns into 25-40 yard breakout runs.

There is two players that come to my mind when I think comparisons.

Isaiah Pead: 5'11, 200 lbs, Round 2 Pick #50
LeSean McCoy: 5'11, 208 lbs, Round 2 Pick #53
Chris Johnson: 5'11, 201 lbs, Round 1 Pick #24

All 3 players are similar. All have killer speed, make great cuts, and make defenders tackle air. CJ2K and McCoy have been unbelievably productive within their short careers in the NFL. CJ2K topped 2,000 yards two seasons ago. McCoy scored 20 TD's last year. Both Johnson and McCoy average 4.8 YPC in their careers, which is tremendous. All 3 RB's can come out of the backfield and catch the ball. All of them can find a 30 yard run in a situation where a regular RB would only gain 3 or 4 yards.

Pead is going to surprise people. So many times we see little RB's that drop in the draft due to size that kill it in the NFL due to their ability to make guys look foolish while trying to tackle them. Isaiah is going to be exciting to watch next year.
