With the Bengals expected to go WR in the second-round, the Bengals will have to add a RB in the later rounds in they are to solidify their stable of RBs as offensive coordinator Jay Gruden emphasized his desire to do. They won’t have to look far, as the city of Cincinnati featured one of college football’s best running-backs last season in UC product Isaiah Pead. The Bearcats workhorse back carried the ball 237 times for 1259 yards and 12 TDs. He also chipped in 39 receptions for 319 yards and another 3 TDs. He played 4 seasons at UC, and carried the ball 100 times or more in 3 of those years, so he might have a little wear on him, but he’ll be an impact player his first year for whatever team drafts him.
