You know Bishop Sankey‘s impressive numbers from 2013 — notably, 1,870 yards rushing and 21 total touchdowns for the Huskies.
Sankey’s numbers early in 2014 aren’t too shabby either.
Sankey ran an unofficial 4.47-second 40-yard dash and bench-pressed 225 pounds 26 times — second-best among all running backs — at the NFL Scouting Combine today in Indianapolis. His 126-inch broad jump tied for fourth among running backs and he had a 35.5-inch vertical jump.
UPDATE: Sankey’s official 40 time came in at 4.49 seconds, tied for ninth among running backs. Here’s the video from NFL.com.
Sankey came into the combine ranked third among running back prospects, according to NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock, and it seems safe to say the former UW star didn’t do anything to hurt his draft stock this weekend.
Here’s the link to Sankey’s full bio from NFL.com.
Also, here’s Bob Condotta‘s notebook from Indy for Sunday’s paper: A foot injury limited Austin Seferian-Jenkins on Saturday, and ASJ isn’t sure if he’ll be able to participate in UW’s Pro Day workout on April 2.
ASJ “has all the tools to be a legitimate No. 1 tight end in the NFL,” but a couple of anonymous scouts were also very critical of ASJ in this draft outlook.
