Default Johnthan Banks is Overrated

Let me just get this out of the way, I am not saying this because I am an Ole Miss fan.

He has some talent I am not disputing that, but he really did not have a good year. People give Amerson a lot of **** for getting abused against Tennessee and not having a great campaign, but Banks has had a less than stellar season and is still getting consistently mocked as a top 20 pick. State had a good defense this year and he was definitely the biggest name on the team, but people still were throwing his way. If you watch the second half of the season or pretty much any of State's SEC games, Banks was getting beat quite a bit.

Banks made a name for himself as a freshman when he had two pick sixes against Florida. He had a nice sophmore year and put up some impressive numbers as last season, much like Amerson. Not only did he not live up to the considerable hype surrounding him this year, but he got beat pretty badly towards the end of the year.

I don't see a lot of talk about Banks, I just see everyone throwing him in there as a high pick. Put up some numbers and has some height/athleticism, but he is not as physical as some people make him out to be and I don't think he is going to be as succesful a cover corner as people are making him out to be. Donte Moncrief is our clearcut best player on offense so they put Banks on him this year, and they ended up having to take him off because he was getting beaten so badly. If you go back and watch some of the tape on Banks, especially this year when he was designated the top guy on the offense, he did not come through as his projected draft stock would indicated.
