Strengths
quick to diagnose the action and move towards the ball; capable of covering slot receivers or the deep zone; has sideline to sideline speed; effective tackler; comfortable and effective as a blitzer; stays with receiver and contests jump balls. Great motor.
Weaknesses
short for a free safety and has a small frame. Functional in man coverage but not a shut down type player. Better when he is facing the action.
Overall Analysis
Baker is a good safety prospect that also has some functionality covering the slot receiver. He is a high effort, fundamentally sound player, that plays bigger than his height and gets the most out of his physical gifts. Coaches and teammates will love his attitude and effort and he should contribute immediately as a nickel safety before taking over as a starter after a year or two.
