    Rainey was a steal in the 5th round!!

    Great pick by pittsburgh, now we do not have to worry about brown taking all those extra hits on special teams. Rainey is small,quick, but injury prone and this guy can block punts i think he blocked 7 will with the gators. No doubt he will be another darren sproiles type, the scout people from pittsburgh are like no other gotta be the best at finding late round gems!!

    It's hard to block punts when you are back deep as a threat to take it to the house on punt returns.


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    Hopefully he doesn't suffer the knee curse of odd numbered draft picks this year.

    Based on the cuts, it looks like Rainey is the 5th receiver on top of RB and special teams. This frees up a roster spot for another need. I was hoping we would go this way with it.

    Pgh is NOT known as brilliant late drafters, at all. They are particularly good at not wasting 1st round picks. But mostly under this regime, 2nd and 3rd day picks are wasted. They are NOT known as genius later round drafters. That is a misnomer.

    Just look at their results after the 3rd round. Nothing to brag about. They are FAIL mostly after the 3rd round.

    i'm assuming you mean lately.

    we've been a consistent threat to win it all since we drafted ben.

    how many late rounders do you expect to make a stacked team?

    I provided the entire list; you can look for yourself that we rarely hit on any picks after the 3rd round, and that includes BEFORE drafting Ben.

    Facts can be a troubling thing to get past.

    Larry Foote, Brett Keisel, Ike Taylor, Willie Colon, Ryan Mundy and Antonio Brown will all be starting Game 1 this year...that's a pretty good late round representation...

    Not to mention undrafted players James Harrison and Isaac Redman...

    Take a look at some of the other NFL teams and you will find a success rate after the 3rd round pretty similar to the Steelers...that's just life in the NFL...
