Banogu vs. Burns

Recommended Posts

A lot of the draft is about hype. We tend to know the players that get on the Hype Train. Looking at production and stats Banogu is just as good if not better than Burns. 

 

These are the production numbers for Burns vs. Banogu

 

2017           Tackles   Solo   Ast   Loss      Sacks

Banagu          55           32     23     16.5       8.5

Burns             48           26     22     13.5       4.5

 

2018

Banagu        57             43    14       18         8.5

Burns          52              31    21       15.5     10

 

In addition Banagu is 6'4" 250 while Burns is 6"5" 235.  

 

If you look at the combine numbers Burns ran a 4.53 and Banagu a 4.6. However the 3 Cone drill was 7.0 for both. Banagu was superior in the athletic tests as it relates to the broad and vertical jumps. Burns refused to bench press which in my opinion tells you something about concerns that he can hold up against the run.

You can tell by the nonverbal communication that Ballard had that he wanted Ben all along. Very versatile guy and a great athlete

I love that they got Rock, Banogu, and Okereke for the defense. All fit the scheme perfectly, and I think will contribute early. You throw in Parris Campbell and it's hard to not be excited with the haul, not to mention the additional 2nd rounder added for next year.

I wish we would have picked a IDL and continue to address the line. But I also don't see the big picture.

I'm with you, but I guess they see it being okay. I'm sure there'll be a selection or 2 with the remaining picks. I am happy that they grabbed another weapon for Luck fairly early, I was scared they wouldn't after grabbing Funchess, but TY isn't gonna be here forever and he's on the wrong side of 30.

I agree. With the more I read the more I like our picks also. They weren't picked for what they've done but what they can do. I think all 4 have huge potential. That's what Ballard preaches also. They draft for the potential.

I’m excited about the Banongu but one thing to keep in mind are the player’s ages. For instance Burns just turned 21 on 4/23, while Banongu turned 23 in January and Chase Winovich is already 24.

I’m guessing you haven’t seen the Ballard video from last night?  Banagu is NOT coming here as s poor man’s Brian Burns. 

 

Banogu is being called a Jack of all Trades.   He’s being started at SAM linebacker.   But Ballard says he can play all three linebacker spots.  Ballard went in to say that B.B. will also play DE and even some DT.   Called him a rusher.   He can do a little of everything.  

 

We are not putting him at right DE only.   You’ll see him everywhere.

We'll find his sweet spot...

The fact that Banogu is being described as a hybrid player and not primarily a pass rusher is slowly making me feel better about this pick.
