Asked about worrisome outside scouting reports of RB Bishop Sankey, Titans beat writer Paul Kuharsky said this:
"They aren't worried about outside scouting reports. They scout him for themselves and they like him and thought he was the best back for them out of all the backs available in the draft. They think he's capable of playing every down, can run inside and out, has good vision, can catch well and will pick up blocking quickly."
We’re projecting Sankey to be the clear RB1 in Tennessee after the Titans took him as the first back in the draft. He’s a versatile back who doesn’t have much competition for touches. The last 13 rookies who were the top drafted RB in their class and joined a backfield with a lackluster incumbent averaged 18.2 touches for 83.1 yards and 0.55 TD, or 11.6 fantasy points per game. That’s about what Ryan Mathews averaged as the #12 RB in 2013.
