Steelers Get a Steal? Grab Florida RB Rainey in Fifth Round

*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***

The Steelers took Florida RB Chris Rainey in the 5th round on Saturday, and some are already saying they got a steal with the back, who compared himself to shifty Saints back Darren Sproles.

Florida’s Chris Rainey is one of the best athletes in the 2012 NFL draft, and the only player who won three different events at the Scouting Combine. As the 159th overall pick to the Steelers late in the fifth round, he could prove to be a steal.

Rainey was the overall leader at the Combine in the 60-yard shuttle (11.06 seconds), 20-yard shuttle (3.93 seconds) and three-cone drill (6.50 seconds), and although there are questions about his size (5-foot-8 and 180 pounds) and off-field issues (he was arrested in 2010 for stalking an ex-girlfriend), there’s no question that Rainey is an elite athlete who can make plays with the ball in his hands, as a runner, receiver or returner.

At the Combine Rainey compared himself to Darren Sproles as an athlete and said he’d like to have that kind of impact in the league. He also vowed to be a hard worker on special teams, not just as a return man but running down the field covering kicks, and trying to block kicks.

Here’s a quick scouting report on Rainey:
