This year I wrote the player rankings and evaluations for the USA Today 2012 NFL Draft magazine. It's on newsstands now and available online here. Leading up to the draft, I'll be reprinting some of my quick reports here.

Bobby Rainey, Western Kentucky
Height: 5'7 3/8, Weight: 205 pounds

Strengths: Despite his size, Rainey can handle a big work load and is a tough runner. Showed good elusiveness in the open field. Because of his receiving ability, is at least a third down back. Patient behind the line and waits for his blocks to set up. No injury concerns.

Weaknesses: May not have great deep speed and is more quick than fast. Doesn’t break a lot of tackles once the defender gets a hand on him. A liability at times in pass blocking. Finished his career at Western Kentucky after accumulating more than 1,000 carries.
