Scouting Report
Can run from sideline to sideline with running backs and receivers. Solid tackler. Physical all-around player. Fast and a play maker. Can cover slot receivers and tight ends. Will need to get bigger to handle blocking.

Immediate Projection
Baker projects to the walk-out linebacker position currently manned by Darron Lee and Chris Worley. Another year of separation between Baker and those two would be a good thing as there is never playing time for a No. 3 linebacker.
