By the time Chris Polk finished his career at the University of Washington, he went down in history with the likes of Hugh McElhenny, Napoleon Kaufman and Greg Lewis as one of the school's best running backs of all time.
Many around UW felt like it could be a long time before they'd see another running back the caliber of Polk, but in Bishop Sankey, a reserve in Polk's last year, they didn't even have to wait a year.
Two years, 36 touchdowns and 3309 yards later, Sankey was the first running back selected in the 2014 NFL draft, going No. 54 overall to Tennessee last Friday. Can we expect Sankey's college success to carry over in his first year in the NFL?
