Mel Kiper calls Bishop Sankey an early-impact rookie

New, comments

The praise for Titans second-round draft pick Bishop Sankey continues.

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Mel Kiper hasn't retread with Dano to the shadows just yet.  Today he has an article out about draft picks that he expects to have an early impact (In$ider).  Bishop Sankey is on that list.  Here is what Kiper had to say about him:

Last year Shonn Greene carried the ball just 154 times for a 3.8-yard average. Sankey is clearly the more explosive option in Tennessee, and is good as a pass-catcher out of the backfield (67 receptions at Washington). The Titans don't consider a RB in this range of the draft unless he's the immediate future.
As I said before, Sankey is the perfect compliment to Greene.

Ken Whisenhunt said on the radio yesterday that Sankey is the rare back who can play on all 3 downs. That means he is going to be on the field a lot of this team in 2014. I can't wait to see it!
