Scouting Report on Eric Baker

by JC Shurburtt - 07/29/2006
Is a consistent back that plays smart. Has good vision and makes quick cuts to gain extra yardage. Is somewhat effective running between the tackles, but is at his best when he can bounce outside for a big gain. Doesn’t have tremendous size, but does a lot of good things naturally to make up for it. For example, he absorbs hits from bigger defenders well.
