We went an insane 53 picks without a running back being selected in the 2014 NFL Draft, which was easily a record. But, no worries, the Tennessee Titans provided hope for RBs everywhere with pick No. 54.
First RB at No. 54 to Tennessee – Bishop Sankey. Latest the first RB off the board ever has gone in an NFL draft.

The early praise for Sankey was quite high.
Bishop Sankey is outstanding in pass protection. He can play on all 3 downs very early in his career.
