2012 NFL Draft: Steelers Host Cincinnati Running Back Isaiah Pead

Running back is a position that the Pittsburgh Steelers will likely address this offseason, be it through the draft or free agency. As one of the Steelers' pre-draft visits, running back Isaiah Pead of the Cincinnati Bearcats will visit the Steelers, according to Steelers Depot.

Pead had a good senior season at Cincinnati rushing for 1,259 yards and 12 touchdowns all on 237 carries. Pead also caught 39 passes for 319 yards and three touchdowns as well. At the Scouting Combine, Pead ran a 4.47 40-yard dash. His weight tops out at 197 pounds so Pead would most likely be used in change-of-pace situations or in space rather than being used in between the tackles.
