Re: Goat's 3 round March Mock
A look at DT Chris Baker from NFLDraftScout.com
Positives: Adequate build in the upper and lower body.
Good quickness off the snap.
Gets his hands into his man's jersey quickly, attacks a shoulder and constantly works to the quarterback.
Can also extend his arms inside the numbers to get leverage and push into the backfield.
Also able to stand up his man on run plays, use his upper-body strength to move him to either side and make a play on the ball.
Uses arm-over move and violent hands to shoot the gap inside.
Will split double-team blocks to pressure the passer.
At end, he held his ground against the run and used his strength, hands and quickness to get by offensive tackles one-on-one.
Shows fairly quick feet, can stay off cut blocks, chase down the line and hustle downfield to get to the ball.
Doesn't back down from anyone.
Negatives: Could work harder against double teams inside and too often stands around after initial contact.
Must improve his awareness on misdirections and screens.
Stamina is an issue, will be best as part of a rotation.
Showed potential in Happy Valley, but his senior season production came against a lower level of competition at a position he might not play in the NFL.
Character issues abound based on his record at Penn State.
