Pos: 
Explosive, game-breaking receiver with next-level speed. Fires off the snap, quickly gets to top speed and plays to his 40 time. Tracks the pass in the air, adjusts to the errant throw and consistently catches the ball with his hands. Sells routes, makes opponents play back on their heels and displays run-after-catch ability. Gets vertical and competes to come away with the reception. Adjusts, contorts and looks the ball into his hands. Makes the difficult over-the-shoulder reception and is creative with the ball in his hands.
Neg: 
Not a smooth route runner, gets choppy feet and occasionally rounds off breaks. Has a thin frame and will struggle to handle jams at the next level.
Analysis: 
Bane is rarely mentioned in scouting circles, which is a shame as he's a dual-threat skill player with game-breaking ability as a receiver and return specialist. He's unlikely to get drafted, but Bane can be a fifth receiver and kick returner at the next level, and at the very least he should find his way onto a practice squad this fall.
