On Sunday, former Western Kentucky running back Bobby Rainey was waived by the Ravens; the Browns subsequently claimed him off waivers. With Montario Hardesty placed on IR and 3rd stringer Brandon Jackson cut, there is opportunity for an outside running back to come in and impress. Rainey was a favorite of mine last year, and I scoffed at people taking Bernard Pierce in rookie drafts due to the former Hilltoppers’ presence (that worked out well for me!). The reason is this: in my running back model, Rainey grades out as a top 25 small running back of all time.
