Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Johnthan Banks Excited to Learn from Darrelle Revis
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were excited to select cornerback Johnthan Banks in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft. There is no question the rookie is very talented and has the potential to become an outstanding player. The Buccaneers are even more excited because veteran cornerback Darrelle Revis will give Banks a chance to absorb as much knowledge as possible by taking him under his wing.
“He’s taught me everything already,” Banks said, according to Buccaneers.com. “This guy is a football freak. I didn’t know how to play corner, I don’t think. Everything…I’ve started all over. I’m just trying to be like him. Whatever he says is what goes. What he says is what all of us try to do. I’m going to continue to do what he tells me.”
Banks put up some very impressive numbers in college. In fact, he recorded 16 career interceptions over a four-year span. He won awards, as well as, the respect of his teammates, coaches and fans. The fact that he is willing to put all of the accolades aside to start over and learn from Revis is very impressive. It takes a certain type of player to realize he can be so much better if he just changes his outlook on the game.
Tampa Bay knows how lucky they are to have Revis on their team. However, what they may not realize is they could be even more fortunate to have Banks. Obviously, there is no telling how good he could become over the next few years. However, with the guidance of Revis, along with his own determination and work ethic, there is no question he will have rookie cornerbacks looking up to him one day.
