Bishop Sankey: 'Running backs are valuable'

Former Washington Huskies running back Bishop Sankey feels that his position is valuable despite the lack of backs taken high in the NFL Draft in the last few seasons.

Former Washington Huskies running back Bishop Sankey believes that his position is just as valuable as any other on the field ahead of the 2014 NFL Draft.

The 21-year-old, who is regarded as one of the best prospects at the running back position, has admitted that he is not worried about where he goes in the Draft after no backs were selected in the first round last year.

Sankey told "Obviously last year with there being no running back going in the first round, I think there has just been a bigger emphasis on the pass in the NFL.

"Maybe I'm biased but I feel like running back are just as valuable as anybody else on the field especially on the offense.

"We not only contribute on the ground but we also pass protect, protect the quarterback and we can also be used as an asset out of the backfield catching the ball."

Sankey ran for 1,870 yards along with 20 touchdowns for the Huskies in the 2013 season.
