With the departure of Chris Johnson, the Tennessee Titans are in need of some running back help in the backfield, and on Friday night in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, they looked to fill that void with the selection of Washington running back, Bishop Sankey.
Also, and this is important to note, they selected Sankey with the 54th overall pick and he was the first back taken off the board, a new record for the position dropping so far.
Still, no matter at what position they were able to take him in, the Titans are getting one of the more prolific rushers in Pac-12 history. In three years on the field for the Huskies, Sankey amassed 3,496 yards on the ground with 37 touchdowns. He’s also no slough catching the ball out of the backfield as well, finishing up his career with 67 catches for 596 yards.
If there were any running back to go first in this group, it’s Sankey. He’s probably the most versatile of the entire group and the Titans should have a lot of fun utilizing him all over the field beginning this season.
