Sankey posts solid Combine numbers

While his former UW teammate Austin Seferian-Jenkins was unable to participate in the NFL Combine due to a foot injury, former Husky running back Bishop Sankey only helped himself during drills in Indianapolis.

Sankey posted the second-best total on the bench press, with 26 reps at 225 pounds, trailing only the 32 of Jerick McKinnon of Georgia Southern.

Sankey then posted an official 40-yard dash time of 4.49, tied for ninth among all running backs (there were 36 listed here) and ahead of, among others, Oregon’s De’Anthony Thomas, who had an official time of 4.50.

Sankey was the only player with local ties to participate in workouts today.

And certainly, he didn’t hurt himself here, though he arrived already with a pretty solid standing, listed by NFL Network’s Mike Mayock as the No. 3 running back, and No. 2 by USA Today’s Sports Weekly, among others.

UPDATE — Draft analyst Rob Rang writes that Sankey was one of the players who helped himself Sunday, saying he “showed better straight-line speed than expected.”
