A western regional scout from an AFC team insists USC OL Zach Banner is an NFL tackle.
"He's a really big guy. That's his body type," the regional scout said. "If he doesn't work his tail off to manage it, there is no doubt his weight will shoot way up again. Everyone is going to write him as a guard but I'm writing him as a tackle. They all have issues. I think we could work around him at tackle." NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Banner to Trent Brown. "Rare size, but some teams will question whether he can bend enough to be a functional NFL guard," Zierlein wrote. "As a tackle, he lacks quickness to consistently protect the passer, and teams might focus too heavily on that shortcoming. Teams who focus on Banner's strength -- drive blocking -- should be rewarded with a starting right guard who is average in pass protection, but who can help turn run creases into running lanes."
