Buccaneers selected Mississippi State CB Johnthan Banks with the No. 43 overall pick.
Banks (6-2, 185) is a lean, long-armed (33 7/8") corner who earned the 2012 Thorpe Award as the nation's top defensive back. (The last four Thorpe winners are Mo Claiborne, Patrick Peterson, Eric Berry, and Malcolm Jenkins.) Banks' stock took a hit when he ran 4.61 at the Combine and managed only 10 bench reps, and his game tape is only above average with a tendency to get beaten deap. It's possible Banks will eventually move to safety in the NFL; he played some safety in the Bulldogs' nickel and dime packages. Initially in Tampa, expect Banks to compete with Eric Wright at right cornerback. Fri, Apr 26, 2013 07:27:00 PM
