The fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft continued right along as the Pittsburgh Steelers decided to pick up running back/wide receiver Chris Rainey with the No. 159 pick in the fifth round. Rainey played running back at Florida, but at the 2012 Senior Bowl he was moved to wide receiver and turned some heads with his quickness and pass catching ability.
