What scouts are saying:

"Good vision and balance. Subtle lateral agility to pick, slide and accelerate. Reads his blocks and instinctively runs to daylight. Fluid gate and efficient movement. Runs competitively. Good hands to pull in throws off his body." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)

"Slim shoulders and possesses a relatively slight frame for the position, overall. Good but not great balance, occasionally swinging his arms to maintain control and in doing so will leave the ball exposed. Saw an awful lot of touches (653) over his final two seasons, leading to some concerns about how tread is left on his tires" (Rob Rang, CBSSports.com)

"Sankey’s best chance to develop into a starter depends on him going to a team that runs a lot of gap-style plays. This includes traps, power, counter plays, and sweeps -- run designs where linemen pull and the runner has one option and doesn't have to do much reading of the defense pre-snap. It’s the running back’s equivalent of an exam with true/false questions" (Matt Waldman, FootballOutsiders.com)
