With a struggling offensive line, Tennessee has not been able to see the full skill set employed by their second-round pick, believed by some to be the best running back prospect entering the league this year.
"He started off running the ball really well, but we didn't do as great a job blocking for him as it progressed," coach Ken Whisenhunt said, via the Tennessean. "I think he made some good cuts and some good runs ... I think there's a lot of times where he's very good at making the first guy miss. We've just got to do a little better job with some of our backs at finishing those things."
Taylor Lewan has been encouraging, but not enough to inspire a game plan that could feature Sankey a little bit more.
It's a development that could make all the difference for someone like Zack Mettenberger.
