Return Specailist: Brandon Banks

16 posts in this topic

Kid has a motor, he could be great on returns and maybe on slot routes. Kinda short (5'7) so he might not be much help on offense.

So is Darren Sproles' date=' just saying...[/quote']

Same college.

Scouting reports list him at sub-150 lbs. Sproles is 185 (if you believe the Chargers) and 5'6.

If I weighed 150 lbs and had major college linebackers and safeties chasing me, I'd probably run pretty fast too.

(not necessarily in the right direction, though)

For the sake of comparison, Martin Gramatica is an inch taller and 20 pounds heavier at 5'8, 170.

You never know. He could succeed at the next level. Still, watching those highlights, it was hard not to feel like I was watching Gary Coleman return kicks.

I'd rather have Holiday. He looked great catching passes as well at the Combine.

Something about Banks I just don't see translating.

If we don't get a WR that can also return (like Banks), I'm still holding out for Noel Devine next year...

His old ST coach is our current ST coach. He had one of (if not his best) year under Rodgers.

Wouldn't surprise me as a late pick. Don't really want him though.

Oh... I was going to add this line about Banks...

Arrested in December 2009 for battery and unlawful possession of a stimulant

I dunno the details, but I think we won't use a draft pick on him for this reason...

That isn't to say we wouldn't pick him up as an undrafted free agent, but I think we'll shy away from him for that arrest alone...

    • Destiny really fuged me in terms of me playing other games. I have a week off this summer and maybe I will be able to dive back in, but I'd really like to finish Breath of the Wild too.  Witcher is so much fun, but iirc I'm kind of at a point where all my quests are a much higher level than me (like 30s and I'm a 15 or something). I probably need to back track and pick up a bunch of side quests that are manageable to boost my level some.    I like the Witcher's lore better than Skyrim, but I still think Skyrim is a more appealing game to me just because you can casually pick it up and start dominating. Witcher is more rewarding but takes more time. 
    • No way would I consider CAP a lock to make the roster. In fact, I think he may be on the outside looking in at the moment. But, the stats bear out that he was roughly equal to Stew in effectiveness last year. Stew averaged 3.78ypc and a TD once every 24 carries. CAP averaged 4ypc and a TD once every 18 carries. Hell, it may be generous saying that Stew was equal to CAP in effectiveness last year. I think a lot of Panthers fans suffer from nostalgia when looking at Stew. I still think he's a decent RB, but to hear some Panthers fans talk you'd think that the guy was a future HOFer. I feel like most of us (myself and the front office and coaching staff included) have perpetually overvalued Jonathan Stewart.
