CB Trajan Band
Out of any name that’s written throughout this article, highlight Trajan Bandy’s as many times as you can. His frame, 5’8, 180 lbs, has no sort of resemblance or indication of the player he is. Confidence is a must to play the cornerback position, and there’s not many you could look further than without mentioning Bandy.
His aggression and physicality at his size, although it can still be a slight disadvantage with bigger receivers on the outside, is furious. An asset that, if not immediately, can’t be used on the defense, would be loved on special teams.
Boston College’s running back AJ Dillon, who came in at the combine at 6’0, 247 lbs, meant absolutely nothing with the pursuit of Bandy, something he does consistently.
Although he can struggle at times going stride-for-stride due to length, he still possesses good speed and hips to mirror. Projected as a nickel-back, and with his early experience at the position as a Cane plus the mold he is as a player as described, he could sneak his way up into this CB group. It’s a well-rounded room & with Justin Layne still on the verge to prove himself, it will be a difficult task for Bandy, but don’t count him out.
He may not have had an interception in 2019, but still ending his three-year college career with 4 in total, as well as 90 tackles, 9 TFL, three sacks, 23 pass deflections, and one forced fumble, Bandy has been a contributor since day one.
Already betting on himself, as many thought he would return to Miami for his senior season, stamp Bandy’s name as the name to watch throughout the preseason.
