Titans RB Bishop Sankey, a second-round pick out of Washington, missed the first nine days of organized team activities because NFL rules prohibited him from practicing as he finished his school commitments.
"Mentally he is in good shape, but physically when he gets on the field, the speed, he is not there yet. So that is going to take some time to adjust to, and you can see it," HC Ken Whisenhunt said. "You can talk to him and he can tell you what he is doing, but when those guys are moving around. …
"I think one thing that is very evident is you are pleased with his movement skills and the way he is coming in here. He looks good. You can tell he has natural vision, runs the ball really well and you like that. I am excited to see what he can do in minicamp and (training) camp."
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.
