Johnthan Banks

School: Mississippi State
Position: CB
Bio: Three-year starter awarded all-America and all-Conference honors as a senior when he was also named Jim Thorpe Award recipient. Senior totals included 63 tackles/4 interceptions/7 pass break-ups. All-Conference selection as a junior after totaling 71/5/9.
Positive: Instinctive, hard-working cornerback with solid ball skills. Diagnoses plays, battles hard to defend the throw, and consistently around the action. Quick up the field to defend the run, plays with an aggressive attitude, and shows good wherewithal. Quickly transitions with opponents off the line to run downfield and plays with excellent balance. Gets vertical to defend the throw or make interceptions. Fluid and smooth in all his actions, displays terrific timing as well as hands for interceptions.
Negative: Possesses just an average burst to the ball out of his plant. Lacks deep speed and gives up long receptions to opponents.
Analysis: Banks was a consistent cornerback at Mississippi State and a defender who rarely made mental mistakes. He's speed deficient but very effective facing the action, and can start in the NFL in a zone system or backed off the line of scrimmage.
