He was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the seventh round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He played college football at Tennessee State, having also played at Ellsworth Community College.

Early years[edit]

A native of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Rhaney lost his mother, Veronica Dixon to a sudden illness when he was in seventh grade.[1] He attended Academy High School in Coral Springs, Florida, before it was shut down, and later Stranahan High School.

College career[edit]

Because his transcript from Academy was lost, he could not meet NCAA requirements to accept a scholarship offer from Alabama A&M University. Instead, he enrolled at Ellsworth CC, and later Tennessee State.[citation needed]
