    I think Matt Baker should be back up or 3rd string this year. He has enough arm strength, and his toughness is great. Is also halfway fast when scrambling. Accuracy is not bad either.

    Who is this guy? Did we sign him as an undrafted free agent?

    Three sleepers for the NFL draft
    by Ken Becks


    Matt Baker

    Position: QB
    Number: 07
    School: North Carolina
    Height: 6'3
    Status: Senior
    Weight: 210

    -He is a player at the quarterback position that show serious upside toward the future.

    -He has good size, with a nice sturdy build to him, he is an above average athlete with good mobility for the position, which allows him to extend passing plays for his receivers, that otherwise may not have been possible without his mobility.

    -He shows nice poise, and composure in the pocket under pressure, who has a quick release and tight spiral, with good foot placement when throwing the ball, with a willingness to stand strong in the pocket, and take the hit to complete passes.

    -With his mobility he becomes a dual threat to defenders as well, he may not run for significant yardage on scrambles, but he keeps defenses honest, and he throws well on the run, preferring to throw first, keeping his eyes down field for a possible completion.

    -Another aspect of his game that has me high on him is competitive attitude, despite being on a team with a losing record, that shows me he has the internal passion for the game I look for.

    -He needs to become a better decision maker with some of his throws, which have lead into unecessary interceptions, but with grooming and patience from the right pro team, his upside could be off the charts down the road.

    Looks like Matt Baker and Quniton Porter will be fighting for a roster spot. Looks like its going to be a good fight.

    Dave Ragone was the greatest QB ever mid way through the season. All the Carr haters wanted him in.

    Oh and this doesnt fit this post, but it's the first time I've seen this.

    :fireball:

    Now would we have got that with Reggie?...I think not

    im the only one to be pulling for him it seems. i believe he has starter potential. He didn't play last season because he did not rest much that season, with the NFLEL run and all. His arm must have been as weak as mine by then.
