Despite being 27 years old–not as youthful as the others in attendance–Banks’ enthusiasm and effort was visible. Unfortunately the reality is he may not make the team due to the numbers game. However being a linebacker may bode well for him considering that is an area the Falcons are still looking to upgrade.
Banks said he practiced primarily at MLB, a position that currently belongs to Akeem Dent. Dent, however, did not turn many heads last season and therefore the door could be open for Banks.
Whatever the case may be for Banks, I am rooting for him and i hope he gets an opportunity if not in Atlanta, then elsewhere in the NFL. Best of luck to you Brian Banks!
