    Per BSPN (he’s excellent in run support):

    Aggressive cornerback. Not at all afraid to mix it up physically. Flies around the field and will sacrifice his body to get in on the play. Needs to be more consistent with hand usage and continue to improve upper body strength to disengage quicker. But he is willing and active in support. Does a nice job with outside leverage. Not afraid to mix it up near the line of scrimmage. Has experience at DS and has worked as an eight defender in the box. Also shows very good awareness when turned loose off the edge as a blitzer. Has a tendency to wrap up a bit high but does a better job than most college CBs of finishing tackles. Looks to strip the ball when possible and has flashed effectiveness in that area.

    Was it just me or did I see him making defensive adjustments before the snap? If so, that shows some level of instinct/intelligence. Also seems pretty physical. (Got juked on the one run though, straight to the ground.)

    You’re right on, he’s a very intelligent player. He’s lean but physical, and has great eyes and anticipation. He knows what’s happening on the field and exactly where he’s supposed to be. I really like this pick.

    Wow that was pretty exciting watching those highlights. I think Banks was a fantastic pick. He appears to be able to hit that burst all game long without shortage. I could care less about his 40 time. I saw relentless pursuit and great instincts from him. Reminds me much more of an unpolished Ronde Barber than a Talib. Talib is a poor tackler. Banks may need slight polishing but hes NFL ready now and will really prosper from a Ronde Barber mentor-ship. Ronde knows how to tackle.
