Brandon Banks

Washington Redskins

Defensive End

Rookie Free Agent


Strength: Brandon Banks is agile for a defensive end. Brandon Banks has good quickness for a defensive end. Brandon Banks has strong arms. Brandon Banks is very strong. Brandon Banks has good football intelligence. Brandon Banks has a reputation as a hard worker.
Weakness: Brandon Banks is too small for a 3-4 defensive end. Brandon Banks lacks ideal speed for a 3-4 defensive end. Brandon Banks hasn't played against top college competition. Brandon Banks didn't show much pass rush ability in college.
Development: Brandon Banks was a consistent run-stuffer in college, but his weight is more typically associated with pass-rush specialists in the NFL. He is a curious fit for a 3-4 defense, with his best chance at NFL success being as a 4-3 run-stuffing end. He has the strength and agility to make plays around the line, but it is hard to imagine a scenario where he makes the roster this year. The best I can figure is they like the way he plays and think the trainers might be able to do something to reshape his body for a future season.
Fantasy Football Rating: No impact.
Typecast Outlook Opinion: Tweener. Project. Neither fast nor large.
