Strengths 

Has all the measurables you want to see in a offensive lineman. Big, quick, physical and very technically sound. Once he engages, he is very difficult to break away from. Like most of Notre Dame's great linemen, he is very versatile and played multiple positions in his career. Very quick getting in his pass set and has a good punch. Gets off the ball fast and has a lot of drive, when opening run lanes. Very good at getting to the second level and making blocks down field.

Weaknessess

Not the most flexible lineman. Has a hard time recovering when he gets off balance and can start lunging at defenders. This also can hurt him when handling stunts, especially when the stunting player is fast. Though he has good hips when driving and mirroring players, he isn't great turning quickly. Too courteous at times, would like to see him bury more defenders when possible.

Big Picture

Banks is going to be another player in a line of great O-Linemen coming out of Notre Dame. He is good in every aspect of the game, whether run, or pass blocking. He is a very technical player and has all the fundamentals that make a great lineman. He should be able to fit in any offense and is a plug and play talent. I would like to see him get a little meaner, because he doesn't always finish a block by burying the defender and professional players will know how to take advantage of that. Can play any position across the O-Line, which is huge in today's NFL. I think he is best suited for the interior positions, but proved he can be an effective OT as well. There is not much to dislike here honestly and I think he can be the best linemen in this class.
