The Denver Broncos already have one of the most talented defenses in the AFC, but they could add to that in this year's NFL Draft.
A plus athlete who is often too aggressive for his own good, Johnathan Banks is a player I expect to fall a bit on draft day. His athleticism keeps him in the first round for now, as the Broncos could use a bit more of that in their secondary.
Banks, a 6'2 senior out of Maben, Miss., had a solid season for the Bulldogs. He had four interceptions, including two in a 28-10 win over Auburn early in September.
Banks won the Jim Thorpe Award this year for his terrific season. He is considered the No. 1 cornerback in the draft by NFLDraftScout.com.
His best game came in a 45-3 win over Middle Tennessee on Oct. 20. Banks recorded five solo tackles, three assists, two pass deflections and a 46-yard interception return.
With Champ Bailey wrapping up his 14th season in the NFL after the playoffs, the Broncos might need a replacement soon. If Bailey were to stick around for a few more seasons, Banks could learn quite a bit from the 12-time Pro Bowler.
