There were a couple times they stuffed us
Deandre Baker https://www.theredskinslockerroom.com/au...ins-jersey , CBSchool: Georgia | Conference: SECCollege Experience: Senior | Age: 22Height / Weight: 5-11 / 185 lbsProjected Draft Status: 1st RoundNFL Comparison: Kyle FullerCollege StatisticsPlayer OverviewDeandre Baker was a 3-star recruit from Miami when he decided to commit to Georgia in 2015. To this day I am sick to my stomach that my Canes did not try and recruit him and/or make him an offer. Baker got offers from schools like Texas and Clemson but decided to play for Kirby Smart because of his defensive pedigree and the level of competition in the SEC. Baker has been one of college football’s best corners for a couple years now. He nearly made the jump to the NFL early last season. The loss to Alabama in the championship game was a real disappointment to him. This past season he played his part in trying to get the Dawgs back to that stage but they fell short in the playoff selection. Baker did pick up two impressive personal accolades though. He was voted a consensus All-American in 2018 and he is the winner of the Jim Thorpe award which is given to the nation’s best college defensive back. He won the award over other top corner’s Greedy Williams and Julian Love. Baker plays with a lot of passion and grit. As good as he is has a bit of a chip on his shoulder. In an early season game against South Carolina he was taunted by WR Deebo Samuel leading up to the game who said something to the effect of “I don’t know who he is”. Baker took that as a sign of disrespect and in turn held Samuel to 33 receiving yards and picked off a pass in that game. He is a highly competitive player with top notch cover skill especially in zone coverage. StrengthsGood size for the position with good athleticism. Baker will be able to stick with almost anyone in the field in a foot race and I expect him to run in the mid 4.4s.Great coverage corner who can play man but I think is better in zone right now. Baker lures QBs and WRs into a false sense of security because he often plays so far off the WR at the LOS. When the ball is thrown he closes so quickly and is able to disrupt the pass. If a receiver does catch it Baker is usually there to bring him down.What makes Baker so good in coverage are his instincts, anticipation, and ability to recognize a route. He can’t quite run the route with the receiver as the best man corners do but Baker does have a great understanding of whats unfolding around him in zone and makes good decisions regarding his timing and how he’s going to disrupt the pass. Hands are decent. He probably should have a few more interceptions but the couple he snagged this year are because he was flying full speed to the ball.WeaknessesI have bad flashbacks when I see a corner playing so much off coverage. Baker is good at zone and off man but the space he was accustomed to giving WRs in college is going to shrink in the NFL. The big question is how long it will take him to adjust to this. Because a lot of his time is spent playing off coverage and because of the team around him Baker didnt have to come up a ton in run support. It will be interesting to see if he can get more production / be more aggressive as a tackler in the pros. If asked to play press man he is going to have to get stronger to effectively jam receivers at the LOS.Let’s see his work: More Deandre Baker videosHow He Would Fit On The RedskinsAssuming the defensive philosophy stays the same for the Skins as well as the defensive staff. I think Baker could fit well given how much zone and off coverage the team plays. From what I can gather it appears the Redskins boundary corners play more off man / zone as opposed to the person playing the nickel/slot. I think if the Redskins used a 1st round pick on Baker we would obviously be expecting him to start opposite of Norman or Dunbar (whoever the team keeps as starter). I think the Redskins secondary needed some top corner talent since the trade that sent Kendal Fuller to the Chiefs. Norman at this point in his career is a CB2 and will have to adjust his cost or likely part ways with the team. Dunbar is a converted WR who was playing well and showed a lot of promise until a nerve injury in his leg started flaring up late in the season. I think Dunbar at best is a CB2. That means in my opinion the Redskins have a real need once again for a corner with CB1 potential. I think Baker can provide that alone with his cover skills. I hope the staff can get him up to speed with some more physical tackling as well as improving his hands but I see a lot of promise with him. MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — It’s no surprise a matchup between winless teams was decided by a dropped pass.Running back Kenyan Drake couldn’t handle Ryan Fitzpatrick’s quick throw in the flat on a 2-point conversion try with 6 seconds left Sunday, allowing the Washington Redskins to escape with their first victory of the year by beating the Miami Dolphins 17-16.Drake had four defenders between him and the end zone and probably wouldn’t have scored even if he had secured the ball. But the drop put the brakes on a frantic comeback by the Dolphins, who trailed 17-3 when Fitzpatrick replaced Josh Rosen to start the fourth quarter.Article continues below ...Redskins rookie Terry McLaurin caught two touchdown passes, and veteran Adrian Peterson more than doubled his season rushing total with 118 for Bill Callahan in his first game as interim coach.“Games like this, two winless teams, everybody pulls out the stops,” Callahan said. “It was wild all the way to the last minute.”Washington (1-5) looked like a different team after firing coach Jay Gruden, although the caliber of the opposition had something to do with that. The Dolphins (0-5) remained winless under rookie coach Brian Flores but helped their chances of securing the No. 1 draft pick in April.When asked about the two-point conversion, Flores said he was going for the win.“We felt good about the play — something that we worked on all week,” he said.Drake Womens Dwayne Haskins Jersey , however, said another running back practiced that play, and not him.Fitzpatrick led two touchdown drives, including a climactic 75-yard march that began with 2:02 left. After he hit DeVante Parker for an 11-yard score to cut the deficit to one point, Flores decided to go for 2.Drake split wide left, went in motion and had traffic around him when the pass was thrown his way.“He wasn’t going to walk in the end zone,” Fitzpatrick said. “He was going to have to do something significant and special. We wanted to give him the chance to do that.”Drake said, “I have to hold my end of the bargain up. Everyone has their job to do. My job is to catch the ball and get in the end zone.”REDSKINS OFFENSEAlthough Miami’s defense mustered its best effort of the season, McLaurin slipped behind the secondary to catch scoring passes of 25 and 33 yards from Case Keenum, who returned after missing one game because of a foot injury.McLaurin, a third-round draft pick who has been one of the Redskins’ few bright spots this year, totaled four receptions for 100 yards.Callahan gave Peterson a significant workload as expected, and the four-time All-Pro running back carried 23 times to reach the 100-yard mark for the 56th time.“It’s about having opportunities and sticking to it Dwayne Haskins Jersey White ,” Peterson said. “ but we stuck to running the ball.”PHOTO OPAfter making a diving interception, Redskins linebacker Shaun Dion Hamilton rose and trotted 35 yards to the end zone, waving for his teammates to join him. More than a dozen did to strike a pose for photographers.SPUTTERING DOLPHINSMiami’s offense generated few cheers from the half-empty stadium until the end, and remained on pace for the lowest-scoring 16-game season in NFL history.The Dolphins used six offensive linemen at times and converted two fourth downs, one with special teams trickery. They attempted an onside kick, which was foiled by a penalty.Nothing could reverse their fortunes. Miami never led and has been ahead for only 3 minutes, 49 seconds this season.Washington intercepted Rosen twice and sacked him five times before Flores benched him.“I was disappointed, but I understood the situation,” Rosen said. “It was obviously a smart decision.”INJURY REPORTRedskins: RB Chris Thompson left the game in the third quarter with a foot injury. TE Jerome Cunningham departed in the fourth quarter with a knee injury.Dolphins: CB Ken Webster limped off the field with a leg injury in the third quarter. DE Avery Moss left the game in the third quarter to be evaluated for a possible concussion, returned and suffered an ankle injury.UP NEXTREDSKINS: Callahan said Keenum will remain the starter when the Redskins play host to San Francisco on Oct. 20. Washington won the last time the teams met two years ago.DOLPHINS: Flores said Rosen will remain the starter when the Dolphins play Oct. 20 at Buffalo. The Dolphins lost their season finale there last year, and coach Adam Gase was then fired.
