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.

Watching that highlight video I felt like I was watching pee wee football...he is tiny.

So is Darren Sproles, just saying...

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.

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...

That sort of thing is a factor more often than people know.
