Baker has a distinct nose for the ball, allowing him to anticipate throws and make good breaks. Baker possesses good, not great size for the position, but he hits like a safety. Baker is in no way afraid to stick his nose in for run support, something that would also take some burden off of a weak linebacker core. Baker is a leader on defense and is somebody who lets his play speak for itself. Baker has also forced two fumbles in his career at Georgia.
