BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter who was limited to eight games last season due to a hamstring injury and totaled just 62/305/7 on the ground. Also added 14/166/1 receiving. Junior totals included 940 yards rushing and 25 receptions.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized, powerful ballcarrier who works best between the tackles. Displays good vision, has a burst through the hole and rarely is brought down by the first defender. Keeps his feet driving up the field and picks up a lot of yardage off initial conta
NEGATIVES: Not an elusive runner who makes defenders miss. Cannot cut the corner or beat defenders to the outside.
ANALYSIS: A straight-line ball carrier with a good degree of power, Banks displays a well-rounded game for the next level. Has a place as a short-yardage runner.
