Conference: Western Athletic
40 Time: 4.65
Biography: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors after his sophomore and junior seasons, when he led the team in tackles. Senior totals included 51 tackles, when he missed three games with a leg injury. Junior numbers included 115 tackles, after a career-best 118 as a sophomore.
Positives: Hard-hitting defensive back best defending the run. Quickly diagnoses the action, works well with cornerbacks and aggressively moves up the field. Tough against the run and wraps up tackling.
Negatives: Does not always take proper angles to the action. Poor man-cover skills. Just an average burst of closing speed.
Analysis: Baker has been a tackling machine for Louisiana Tech and offers possibilities as a strong or zone safety.
