Tennessee’s group of selections could be considered a “value draft” of sorts, but the Titans made a splash when they took Bishop Sankey as the No. 54 overall pick.

While he wasn’t a highly-touted name like Carlos Hyde or Tre Mason, Sankey is projected as one to 10 “plug-and-play starters” from NFL.com’s Chris Wesseling:

“3. Bishop Sankey, RB, Titans: The 54th spot is the farthest the top running back in the draft has ever fallen, but that won’t stop the Titansfrom pairing Sankey with Shonn Greene in a tandem attack. Expect a role similar to that of Giovani Bernardwith the Bengals last season.”

Some scouts have called him a “poor man’s Emmitt Smith.” That’s a heck of an upgrade over the current slew of backs Tennessee has.
