Set your DVR: The Huskies’ record-breaking running back, Bishop Sankey, is one of five players profiled in a new ESPN series, Draft Academy, that is set to debut at 7 p.m. PT today.

I was able to get a sneak preview of the first of four one-hour shows, which take us behind the scenes as Sankey, Blake Bortles, Jadeveon Clowney, Marqise Lee and Pierre Desir prepare for the NFL combine and draft.

Sankey is introduced as “the old-school grinder with the drive to prove the workhorse running back is not a thing of the past.” We get to watch him brush his teeth.

Keith Price also makes a cameo — and steals the show. Price has been training with Bortles, the Central Florida quarterback, in southern California with Jordan Palmer, and in a fun made-for-reality-TV moment, they all attempt to go stand-up paddle boarding. It’s Price first attempt and, well, it doesn’t go so well.

But he’s always smiling.
