News: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have selected Mississippi State cornerback Johnthan Banks in the second round of the NFL draft. Banks had 15 interceptions and 41 passes defensed in four collegiate seasons. He also had over 50 total tackles in each of his last three seasons. The 6-foot-2 corner can also return punts.
Analysis: Banks joins a defense that ranked last in the league against the pass in 2012 and might have the chance to start opposite Darrelle Revis. The former safety is lean (185 pounds) and has some issues with overpursuing defenders and stamina. But he's a heck of a ball hawk with uncanny awareness for the ball when it's in the air. Pass stats should be easy for him to come by but his tackle totals might be nominal. We'd draft Banks only in dynasty/keeper leagues and rookie-only drafts with late-round picks.
