Rising excitement for Bishop Sankey.

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The longer we wait the more I want to see Sankey.

Many people in or around the NFL are already realizing what a force Bishop Sankey could by in the Titans offensive system. Aside from Vegas having Sankey as one of their favorites for Rookie of the Year, The Godfather Gil Brandt has picked him as his preseason OPOY.

Sankey looks to get the bulk of the work during the season, especially with Shonn Greene now questionable with an injury. The Titans offense needs pieces like Sankey that can be effective in both the passing game and as a pure runner out of the backfield.

Behind a mammoth offensive line and one of the best fullbacks in the NFL (if they decide to use him) Sankey should have a very successful season. Even when he is just going through practice this preseason, he will be the main focal point of reporters and fans.

The only player (aside from Sankey himself) that can really take significant snaps away from Sankey is Dexter McCluster. As a gadget RB in this system, there may be many games early in the year where Whisenhunt wants someone who can easily shift to receiver to empty the backfield for Jake Locker to move around if he needs to.
