Rams take RB with 3rd pick of 2nd round

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Rams drafted a potential backup running back behind two-time Pro Bowler Steven Jackson, taking Isaiah Pead of Cincinnati with the third of their second-round picks Friday night.

The 5-11, 200-pound Pead ran for 1,259 yards with a 5.3-yard average and 12 touchdowns last year with five 100-yard games. He added 39 receptions with an 8.2-yard average and three TDs. Pead also rushed for 1,000 yards his junior year.

Jackson is coming off his seventh consecutive 1,000-yard season and has showed no signs of slowing down. But the Rams have lacked a quality change of pace back for several years.
