Not even in same class as Dee
Complete Bama fatigue and bias. Dee is twice the CB as that guy. Smh
I disagree about the not being in same class. Stinks that Dee didn't win though.
Banks is a good player but he is not even comparable to dee. Horrible decision
Shocked, thought he had that locked up.
Who in the hell votes on this????????????? Are you kidding me?????????????
Two years in a row that the Thorpe went to the wrong player.
Banks isn't even very good. Stupid.
I'm not one to call players overrated, but Banks looked bad in a few games i saw this year.
This is a stupid choice, a guy that got hyped up, but isn't even that good.
This, congrats to him. I only watched the bama game but he sounds like a good kid and a heck of a football player.
Gotta love the butthurt ITT - basing your evaluation off of a single play versus Kenny Bell isn't exactly the best way to make an informed decision.
Moncrief absolutely went off on him in the egg bowl. This was not an isolated incident. Great kid...but he lacks the top end speed to stay with the elite receivers in this conference.
I think Dee is the better, faster, more explosive athlete but Banks has good skills and typically good technique. I think both go 1st around with Dee going top 10 and Banks in the 15-25 range. This could change, good or bad, based on Combine Performances.
I can't say who deserved the award as the criteria seems to be a moving target....sometimes best stats while other times best player [who had no stats because the opposition was afraid to go at him].
Not sweating it though as Banks had a touching story that aired on ESPN a few weeks back. Seems like a good kid.....so if Dee couldn't win it I'm OK with a kid like Banks.
You get out of it what you put into it!
1st Round Grade right now but if you correct about his speed......that 40 won't lie.
Off topic slightly but some might be interested:
I know CB-David Amerson at NC State saw a precipitous drop in his stock this season as people were talking top 5 overall at the beginning of the season. Then Patterson (CP) of Tennessee abused Amerson in the opener at the Georgia Dome.
Speaking of CP, I posted this summer before the season started that my buddy's son enrolled at Hutchinson JUCO this summer and got to workout with CP. Buddy's son is a blazer...top 3-4 at Georgia State Meet in 110m hurdles, 300m hurdles and relay leg on a top 10 4x100 and top 10 4x400 relay team in 2012. He ran a hand-time 4.38 at Hutchinson this Summer. Came home for a few weeks this summer and told me CP had the Hutchison had timed record in 4.2x and that he could jump out the gym. Said he was the sickest athlete he'd ever seen. Spoke about CP like he was a legend in the making. Now hearing CP is probably 1 and done at UT..Mel Kiper has CP as the #1 WR on his most recent Big Board and #11 overall. I thought my buddy's son was exaggerating about CP....but obviously not if you can be the #1WR in the draft after 1 season at Div I level.

Its not an isolated incident. Banks has been toasted all season by nearly every even relatively good SEC QB (Bray, wallace mcCarron, mett, obviouksy JM) Chances of being drafted ahead of milliner are none to none.
Just a really poor decision.
