Default Could Chris Rainey be the next Darren Sproles?

Both are pretty small but very fast and explosive. I think it would be a great thing for us if he could be like him or even better. What do you think?

i can picture him being a kevin faulk type of player that won't ever be an every-down back, but can create a lot of mismatches with linebackers while he's in the game.

this was one of the more interesting picks this draft, imo. he doesn't seem to fit in as a traditional steelers back, so I'm thinking this was a haley pick all the way.

No. I'm thinking Dante Hall.

Hall was 5'8 187, Rainey is 5'9 180. Dante Hall was a dynamic return-man, and often had great plays lined up at receiver, as well.

And here's Rainey...

Look pretty similar, don't they?
