Brian Banks Runs Falcons' Defense At Rookie Minicamp
Brian Banks is 27 years old. It's not a normal age for an NFL rookie, but normal really isn't in the equation when talking about Banks' life and football career.
A former high school star who essentially lost 10 years of his life over a crime he didn't commit, Banks is getting his shot at an NFL career with the Atlanta Falcons.
Playing in a rookie minicamp with players who mostly are six years younger than him, Banks ran the defense at the middle linebacker spot, the Falcons' official website reported Saturday.
It's a sharp learning curve for a player who never saw a snap of college action.
"It was real good today to get out there," Banks said. "I've been in film the last two weeks, so to get a chance to get out there and put all the knowledge that we've been putting on paper out onto the field was a really good experience for the first time. It was really fast-paced. I made a lot of really good moves, made a lot of mistakes, so adjustments will be made."
