Joe Haden ran a 4.58, Richard Sherman ran 4.56, neither of those guys have the speed to play cornerback in the NFL either according to your standards. Banks is one of the very best CB's in the this draft and a guy who projects as a pretty good CB at the next level.
I agree 40 times don't tell the whole story of a CBs play.
