The LA Rams had nine picks in the draft last weekend but also added another twenty more rookies on free-agent deals. One of those rookies with a good chance to make the team is a defensive lineman from UTSA, Eric Banks. As a former Quarterback and basketball player from Memphis, TN, Banks is the exact type of athlete that the Rams love going after the passer. To go along with the prototypical size, Banks also played in every game he was on campus all four years. We caught up with him for a quick interview before he heads to LA.
