Zach Banner-OL-USC
Size: 6’8 353lbs

Zach Banner

Strengths:

  • Massive size
  • Upper-body strength
  • Decent athlete for size
  • Strong hands

Analysis: Zach Banner is a big, big, big man. His upper body strength is elite and he has the length and girth to overwhelm smaller opponents. Able to withstand a bull rush thanks to enormous frame. Powerful road-grader who blasts holes open as down-blocker and generates movement with his base blocks. Leverage not always necessary to produce push at point of attack. Won’t find him on the ground much. Decent athlete for his size. Functional combo blocker. If he gets his extremely strong hands on a defender, they are not breaking away. He could play right tackle but would need help against edge speed.

Weaknesses:

  • Weight concerns
  • Pass protection
  • Slow-ish out of stance
  • Lack of functional bend
  • Penalty issues

Analysis: Zach Banner’s weight concerns are a huge issue. Has seen weight balloon to 385 pounds. Pass pro is a major concern. Could be too big and bulky to handle NFL edge talent. Lacks athleticism and quickness to recover when beaten. Slower than desired out of stance. Has to open early and lunge to protect the edge in pass pro. Rarely flat-footed at punch, relying on girth over technique.┬áLack of bend and high center of gravity could make move to guard a challenge. Has had issues with penalties during time as starter at USC.
