    Headshot for Deonte Banks

    Although they still have a need at wide receiver, we learned yesterday that the Giants are not presently expected to acquire free agent DeAndre Hopkins. With Hopkins eyeing a $15MM/year contract, and with New York boasting less than $4MM in cap room, much would have to change for the club’s interest in Hopkins to go […]

    On Friday, the Giants signed cornerback Deonte Banks to a four-year, $13.6 million, fully guaranteed contract. After playing at Maryland, the rookie was selected in the first round, No. 24 overall in the 2023 NFL Draft. In his four seasons as a Terrapin, he totaled 61 tackles and two interceptions. However, Banks' experience should get him on the field plenty this season, potentially even starting immediately opposite Adoree' Jackson.

  • Deonte Banks Could Make Impact From Day 1

    New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll constantly reiterates that training camp this summer will be a competition for starting spots, but rookie cornerback Deonte Banks could have the biggest impact from Day 1. The first-rounder will likely be the starter opposite top corner Adoree' Jackson. Jackson isn't signed beyond next year, though, so Banks could quickly become the face of the position group in New York. He will compete with Cor'Dale Flott, Aaron Robinson and Nick McCloud this summer. Given the team's first-round investment and Banks' man-coverage abilities, it's expected that he will be starting right away in his first NFL campaign.

  • Giants Trade Up One Spot To Select Deonte Banks

    The New York Giants selected University of Maryland cornerback Deonte Banks with the No. 24 overall pick in the 2023 NFL draft on Thursday night. The Giants originally held the No. 25 pick in the first round, but they traded up with the Jacksonville Jaguars to take Banks and bolster their secondary. Banks is the fourth cornerback taken so far in this year's first round. The 22-year-old defensive back has excellent speed and turned heads at the scouting combine while measuring in at 6-foot and 197 pounds. He has plenty of experience covering NFL-caliber receivers as a four-year starter and could become a very good player at the next level for the G-Men. Banks will need to work on his coverage skills, but he should be an immediate contributor for the Giants.

  • Deonte Banks Could Be A Top-15 Pick

    Maryland cornerback Deonte Banks has been projected inside the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft for a few months, but former NFL general manager and current NFL insider Michael Lombardi said teams value him higher than most mock drafts currently indicate. Banks is the consensus 20th overall prospect per, but Lombardi said there's a real chance he goes inside the top-15 picks. The Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings, Tennessee Titans, and Detroit Lions all have picks before or right after pick 15, so those could be possible destinations for the 6'1", 197-pound corner with 4.35 speed. Banks had one interception and eight pass deflections in his final season at Maryland.
