Titans Tab Washington RB Bishop Sankey in Second Round of NFL Draft

Posted May 9, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans drafted University of Washington running back Bishop Sankey in the second round after swapping second-round picks with the Philadelphia Eagles and acquiring an extra fourth-round pick.

The Titans exchanged second-round picks, giving the Eagles their 42nd overall pick for Philadelphia's 54th pick, which they used to acqure Sanke. They also acquired Philadelphia's fourth-round pick (122 overall) in the trade.

Sankey, meanwhile, became the first running back selected in this year's draft.

The selection of Sankey marked the second straight year in which the Titans drafted an offensive player in the second round (receiver Justin Hunter in 2013). Sankey is the first running back the Titans have drafted since Jamie Harper (fourth round, 2011).

Sankey opted to declare for the NFL Draft with one year of college eligibility remaining after rushing for 1,870 yards (fourth-most in NCAA) and 20 touchdowns on 327 attempts. He added 304 yards and a TD on 28 receptions in 2013 when he was named second-team All-American and first-team All-Pac 12. The rushing yardage eclipsed Corey Dillon’s single-season school record of 1,695 yards in 1996, and Sankey had at least one rushing TD in every game of 2013.

Sankey rushed for 1,439 yards and 16 TDs in 2012 after becoming a starter in the second game of the season. He played at running back and on special teams in 12 of 13 games as a freshman in 2011.

Sankey measured 5 feet, 9 inches and 209 pounds at the 2014 NFL Combine. He is expected to help replace 2008 first-round pick Chris Johnson, who was released this offseason, along with veterans Shonn Greene, Dexter McCluster, Jackie Battle and Leon Washington.
