Bishop Sankey Scouting Report
April 20, 2014 Leave a comment
BISHOP SANKEY – RB – WASHINGTON
Good straight-line runner who gets to full speed quickly. Impressive burst through the hole. Remains patient and usually does a good job of finding open lanes. Has the speed to turn the corner and bust runs to the outside. Has great balance and runs through more tackles than you’d expect at his size. Great pass catcher who can make difficult catches. Willing blocker who is not afraid of contact.
Linear and doesn’t have great lateral agility. Looks stiff at times, especially in the open field. Lacks the ability to stop and cut on a dime. Smaller than most running backs and is especially small through the lower body. Doesn’t possess natural power and won’t be breaking too many wrap-up tackles. Can be too patient at times and his indecisiveness will lead to runs for losses. Had a huge workload as a senior and looked gassed at times in games.
1-poor, 2-weak, 3-above average, 4-very good, 5-elite
Bishop Sankey is a run-of-the-mill back who doesn’t really stand out in anyway save for his pass catching ability. He’s a little bit too linear to warrant a higher grade but I think he can be a nice #2 back in the NFL. I doubt he’ll ever be a bell-cow or if he’d ever succeed in that role but it seems like teams are shying away from that type of system anyways.
Grade: 3rd Round
