Washington running back Bishop Sankey will decide NFL future after bowl game

On Monday, Washington Huskies dynamic running back Bishop Sankey revealed that he has been given a third-round grade by NFL evaluators. He will now take that information with him into the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl against the BYU Cougars, following which he will make his decision as to whether or not he will return for his senior season in 2014 or head off to the NFL Draft.

Sankey elaborated more on the grade he received while mentioning when he will make his decision:

“It’s pretty much what I expected,” Sankey noted of the third-round grade, which he said he learned about last week. “I’m going to talk to coach (Chris) Petersen and to my family after the bowl game and make a decision.”


Sankey had himself a tremendous 2013 season, rushing for 1,775 yards, setting the school single-season record.

The third-round grade sounds about right for the junior running back, and that can even improve with impressive workouts in the offseason leading up to the Draft.

You would also have to factor in how Sankey feels he would fit into the offense of new head coach Chris Petersen.
