Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Takes accurate angles to the ballcarrier. A strong, aggressive tackler and doesn't back down against the run.
  • Rare hand-eye coordination and agility, vision and third gear to make a living in the return game.
  • Banks tracks the ball well and does a nice job of getting his head around in plenty of time to avoid flags.
  • His ball skills are very good. He tracks the ball well downfield and has the hands and coordination to come away with interceptions even when Banks isn’t targeted often.
  • Has the quick feet to mirror receivers underneath. He also has the fluid hips and top-end speed to turn and run downfield. Banks shows good awareness when dropping into zone coverage, with good route recognition and the ability to break quickly and cover a lot of ground.
  • Physical run supporter in the Antoine Winfield mold with short-area explosiveness to leave his mark on ballcarriers.
  • Has explosive movement skills and the fluid athleticism and change-of-direction ability to come down and cover slot receivers.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Struggles to transition and drive out of his backpedal when playing off-man. Like a lot of physical corners at the collegiate level, he’s too handsy downfield at this point.
  • Not fully consistent on making the interception in front of receivers. Best lined well off the line of scrimmage due to a high, stiff backpedal.
  • He’ll draw plenty of flags early on with his playing style. Banks is hesitant when facing the action in zone coverage.
