04/26/2012 - The lives of three former Western Kentucky football players could take a major turn this weekend as the National Football League holds its annual player draft. The event starts tonight with the first round, but former Hilltoppers Bobby Rainey, Derrius Brooks and Bo Adebayo won't be selected during that portion. Instead, the trio will wait for this weekend's later rounds to hear their names called. "I don't know, to tell you the truth," Rainey said of what to expect. "What I feel, it'll be no later than the third round - but that's what I feel. If it goes different, who knows?" Rainey, a 5-foot-6-inch, 205-pound running back from Griffin, Ga., and Griffin High School, rushed for 1,695 yards and 13 touchdowns, caught 36 passes for 361 yards and four TDs, and threw two passes for 48 yards and one score in 2011. He left the Hill as one of WKU's all-time greats, setting records for rushing yards in a season and a career. The latest teams to contact Rainey have been Denver and St. Louis, he said, and both have him lined up at running back at the next level. Rainey's headed back home to Griffin this weekend and said he just wants to keep things low-key. "No, we're not going to have a party," he said, laughing. "They want to have a party for me, but I told them, ???Nah.' I just want to be with my family at my house, that's it." - Chad Bishop, The Daily News
