Bankston has been described as a stronger athletic version of Clevlen, a fellow Texas recruit and high school quarterback, which is saying something. He hasn't performed as well this spring, so Bankston probably won't go earlier than the fourth round. He has nice size at 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds, a right-field arm and the ability to drive the ball a long way. His swing is inconsistent, however, so he doesn't always make contact. His speed isn't quite in Clevlen's class, though Bankston runs well once he gets going. He could be a tough sign because he reportedly wants second-round money and is more likely to go a couple of rounds later.
