Training Camp Profile: Rams RB Zac Stacy
by Anthony Blake
Running back is becoming a prehistoric position in many backfields around the NFL, but the St. Louis Rams remain a team with an affinity for the ground game. With two draft choices spent on ball carriers in the 2012 NFL Draft, it may seem odd that the franchise would use yet another precious selection on a back this past April. If rookie Zac Stacy can take his opportunity by the horns, though, it could prove to be a very wise decision.
With news coming down that second-year back Isaiah Pead will be suspended for the first game of the regular season, his role with the club will be a bit of a mystery even after training camp. The Rams were counting on Pead to make up one half of the two-headed running attack with Daryl Richardson in the coming season, but this setback could cost him valuable reps and has certainly been costly from an image standpoint.
