Baker’s size and athleticism may make him a target for jump balls when facing bigger receivers. Lacks great speed, so may have to be used in more zone situations. Can occasionally be beaten deep due to lack of long-range speed. Baker is somebody who the Bengals would need to use intelligently if they do decide to go with him. He needs to be put in situations where he is not guiding deep jump balls.
