DeShawn Baker
SI Grade
School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
6-1, 225
40 Time:

BIOGRAPHY: Full-time starter the past two seasons and MEAC Offensive Player of the Year last season after totaling 204/1,289/9 on the ground. Junior totals were 177/826/10.

POSITIVES: A powerful interior runner who picks up the tough yards. Displays vision, follows blocks and finds the running lanes. Aggressive, puts his shoulders into defenders and falls forward when tackled. Possesses solid run instincts. Adequate hands.

NEGATIVES: Runs with an upright style and lacks top playing speed. Cannot beat defenders around the corner and has just an average burst.

ANALYSIS: A punishing runner who carries the pile and also effectively blocks when called upon, Baker offers a lot of skills. With a progressing game, he has definite possibilities as a short-yardage back.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
