“A mammoth human being, Banner has the naturally wide base and wingspan to slide and create a traffic jam in pass protection. ” –Dane Brugler, @dpbrugler (7/21/16)
Plays right tackle at USC, but most likely will move inside as a guard, a giant man with athletic ability, his size will intrigue teams if they can keep his weight under control and keep working on his overall technique and awareness. A player with his extreme size will need to show, through the draft process, that he is not just a leaner that has depended on size advantage, but that also is disciplined enough to learn all of the skills needed to play at the next NFL.
