Isaiah Pead's time with the Rams may be nearing an end

The running back's name came up in trade talks during the draft, according to one report.

If you had any questions about what the St. Louis Rams offense is going to look like in 2014, the NFL Draft should have answered them. The Rams are going to run the ball in 2014, but they'll probably be doing it without 2012 second-round pick Isaiah Pead.

There were trade talks between the Rams and team(s) during this year's draft, reports Dan Pompei.

The Rams drafted Pead in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft with the 50th overall pick. Since then, he's struggled to make the most of his playing time in the preseason and the regular season. In two seasons, he's had 17 attempts for 75 rushing yards and 14 catches for 94 yards. Pead has seen some time on special teams, but his returns have left something to be desired, especially compared to shiftier options.

Pead served a one-game suspension at the beginning of last season for violating the league's substance abuse policy because of a marijuana arrest in Texas. With his limited production and a devaluation of running backs across the league, it's hard to imagine trade talks for Pead going far.

Tre Mason, this year's third-round pick, is likely to get a look as the Rams' change-of-pace, home run threat type back, a role once carved out for Pead.

Pompei's report mentions Daryl Richardson and Zac Stacy as the team's lead running backs, but Benny Cunningham is expected to get most of the work behind Stacy this year.
