Isaiah Pead, running back of the Cincinnati Bearcats, was named the MVP of the 2012 Senior Bowl on Jan. 28.

Pead's team, the North, defeated the South, 23-13.

Pead rushed for 31 yards on eight carries and had one reception for four yards. But, it was Pead's two punt returns for 98 yards which put him over the top in the MVP vote. The 98 punt return yards is a Senior Bowl record.

Pead was joined on the North squad by teammate defensive lineman Derek Wolfe. Wolfe made three tackles in the game.

Defensive lineman Kendall Reyes from the Connecticut Huskies also played in the Senior Bowl. He recorded three tackles (one for loss), one sack.

Pead was a first-team All-Big East offensive selection in 2011. Wolfe and Reyes were named to the first-team of the defensive side of the All-Big East team. Reyes was also ranked as the 80th best prospect in the 2012 NFL Draft by Draft Countdown.

Reyes is projected to go in the 2nd or 3rd round by NFL Draft Scout. Pead is projected to go in the third round by NFL Draft Scout. Wolfe is projected to go in the 5th or 6th round by NFL Draft Scout.
