Analysis:


Bishop Sankey is the closest thing this draft has to an all-around runner. He has good top end speed, and a good blend of power and elusiveness. He’s not the most explosive runner, nor does he have fantastic moves, but he has a way of picking his way through traffic and accelerating to daylight. Sankey could be a lead back at the next level if he can run with more power and improve his pass blocking. He tends to get lost in pass protection and he doesn’t break too many tackles. Will boom or bust at the next level.
