Titans selected Washington RB Bishop Sankey with the No. 54 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Sankey is the first running back off the board. No. 54 is the farthest the first runner has ever fallen. Sankey (5-foot-9 1/2, 209) turned pro as a third-year junior after rushing for 3,496 yards and 37 TDs on 644 carries (5.43 YPC), adding 65 career catches. He broke Corey Dillon's school record for single-season rushing yards (1,870) in 2013, and ran 4.49 at the Combine, impressing with a 10-foot-6 broad jump and outstanding times in the short shuttle (4.00) and three-cone drill (6.75). Sankey's measurables don't show up consistently on film, however, where his burst, tackle breaking and vision underwhelm. Perhaps an NFL conditioning program and position coach can maximize his t-shirt-and-shorts athleticism. Ultimately, we see him as a poor man's Gio Bernard. He'll strike lightning next to Shonn Greene's slow thunder, and could win the starting job outright.
