Strong Points: Productive pass rusher with a quick first step. Effective on inside stunts. Closes off a block. Good tackler.

Weak Points: A bit narrow-framed. Lacks top strength -- often knocked off the line of scrimmage when playing the run. Hand use -- slow to shed vs. run blocks.

The Way We See It: Banogu looks like a one-dimensional player based on the film we watched. He has some pass-rush talent but is far from a complete product, namely lacking size, bulk and strength. He always lined up on the left side, with experience from a 2- and 3-point stance. Even though he sometimes played on his feet, Banogu has minimal coverage experience. We don't view him as a fit for 40' fronts, so it likely will be the 3-4 teams that are interested in Banogu. He must prove he can drop into coverage and add strength to hold up better at the point. Sack production or not, Banogu won't go before Day 3.
