This guy is a man among men. Zach Banner is a rare human specimen much less a football player. Banner stands at 6-foot-9 and somewhere around 351 lbs. That’s not a misprint. He’s the son of former NFL veteran Lincoln Kennedy that played over 11 years in the NFL. Banner can simply push any pile or anything that stands in his way,

He’s simply an incredible athlete for his stature. The NFL Combine will be very important for Banner. He has been saying the he’s like to drop about 15-20 lbs. before the NFL Combine in Indianapolis.

The knock on him is his lateral movement. His upper body moves faster than his lower body which can throw him a little off balance. All things considered, this is understandable with his size. No doubt, if Banner can drop some weight, there will be more scouts that will come around on his stock. This is really a low risk pick at number four. However, there is still some work to be done for Mr. Banner to become a hot commodity. Right now he’s projected to go somewhere in the 4th-6th round.
