Pos: 
Explosive athlete who makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage. Breaks down well, plays with tremendous pad level and consistently gets leverage on opponents. Smooth and fluid, effectively uses his hands to protect himself and displays the ability to quickly change direction. Covers a good amount of area on the field, slides down the line of scrimmage to get to the flanks and shows ability in pursuit. Quick up the field and can bend off the edge but stays with the action and does more than just mindlessly rush up the field.
Neg: 
Lacks bulk and gets handled by opponents when he comes out of a three-point stance. Really doesn't play to his 40 time. Primarily used up the field at TCU and was not asked to make plays in space often.
Analysis: 
Banogu was a terrific college pass rusher who forced the action up the field and consistently disrupted the opponent’s game plan. He must learn to move in reverse and improve his skills in coverage, but Banogu projects as a situational pass rusher who can come out of a three-point stance or stand over tackle early in his NFL career.
