Draft Analysis:

"What he gives the Titans is not a Chris Johnson clone. He runs inside and can get to the edges. He's a big-volume guy; he gets better with more touches." -- Charles Davis

  • 209LBS. Weight
  • 10" Hands


The blue-chip prospect from Spokane, Wash., rushed for 4,355 yards as a prep. Saw action in 12 games in 2011 as a reserve tailback and special teams player, rushing 28 times for 187 yards (6.7-yard average) and one touchdown. Grabbed six passes for 14 yards (2.3) and no touchdowns while returning seven kickoffs for 134 yards (19.1). In 2012, started 12 of 13 games (all but season opener) in which he played and produced 289 rushes for 1,439 yards (5.0) and 16 TDs, the third-highest rushing total in UW history. Was the MVP of the Las Vegas Bowl after setting the school's bowl record with 205 yards rushing and 74 yards receiving. In 2013, set the UW single-season marks for rushing yards with 1,870, breaking Corey Dillon's 1996 mark (1,695 yards) and career rushing touchdowns with 37 (Napoleon Kaufman, 34). The Doak Walker Award finalist amassed 327 carries for 1,870 yards (5.7) and 20 TDs and scored a rushing touchdown in each game while averaging 143.8 rushing yards per game and hauling in 28 catches for 304 yards (10.9) and one TD. Team captain.



Solid, compact built with good thickness through his lower body. Good vision and balance to pick and slide. Subtle lateral agility to pick, slide and accelerate. Reads his blocks and instinctively runs to daylight. Fluid gate and efficient movement. Runs competitively. Good hands to pull in throws off his body. Was productive with a heavy workload in a pro-style offense. Bench pressed 225 pounds 26 times and blazed a 4.0-second 20-yard shuttle time and 6.75-second three-cone time.


Shows some hip tightness. Average explosion, finishing speed and elusiveness. Has shown he can be contained by good defenses. Needs to become a more dependable, physical, fundamentally sound pass protector. Can be tracked from behind and too often is grounded by single-tacklers or tripped up by the ankles. Is not a robust tackle-breaker.

Draft Projection

Rounds 2-3

Bottom Line

The Pac-12's leading rusher, Sankey is an instinctive, competitive and shifty, low-to-the-ground hard runner. Can be effective as a complementary zone runner capable of moving the chains and picking up chunk yards.
