NFL Draft Prospect Bishop Sankey Can Catch a Football While Doing a Backflip (Video)
Former Washington Huskies running back Bishop Shankey probably isn’t going to be selected in the first two rounds of the 2014 NFL draft. He led the Pac-12 in rushing this past season while setting a Huskies record with 1,870 yards, and at the 2014 combine he performed well in the bench, broad jump, three-cone drill, and 20-yard shuttle. However, he’s only 5’9″, he has average speed, and he’s not adept at breaking tackles. So he’ll probably wind up a second or third-string running back.
Then again, you never know. There are plenty of examples of NFL stars who got drafted in the third round—including the quarterback who won the Super Bowl this year after people wrote him off as too small.
Besides, there aren’t many guys in the NFL who can catch a football while doing a backflip the way Bishop can. And while that’s not a very practical skill for an NFL running back, it certainly is impressive.
Take a look:
Wow, right? Somebody should draft this acrobatic kid in the second round just to see what he does to celebrate.
