    15. Johnthan Banks CB MSU 6'2" 185
    Banks had a huge season for the successful Mississippi State Bulldogs in 2011. The junior cornerback led the team with 14 passes defensed, nine pass breakups, five interceptions, and three forced fumbles. He also compiled 71 tackles (46 solo, eight for loss). Of course, it's not like the performance came out of nowhere. Banks played in 12 games as a freshman (at safety) and started the last seven before starting 12 games at left cornerback as a sophomore. Even before this breakout campaign he had seven career interceptions. The Maben, MS native is a versatile defender who can play either safety or cornerback at the next level. He has outstanding size at 6'2'' and can thus contend with almost any NFL receiver. Banks weighs in at 185 pounds and he has room on his frame to add some bulk, which he should do if he moves back to safety. He generally runs in the 4.5s in the 40-yard dash and he has been clocked as fast as 4.42 from that distance. Banks served as MSU's primary punt returner in 2011, averaging more than 10 yards to go along with a touchdown. If he decides to leave early, Banks could be a late first-rounder in the 2012 NFL Draft.
