Budda Baker stock on the rise
From nfl.com columnist Chad Reuter - "The Huskies' junior safety played a big part in the 41-10 blowout of Colorado in the Pac-12 Championship Game. Already considered one of the top defensive playmakers in the country for UW's talented secondary, Baker's coverage skills were on display for the nation to see. On many plays, he lined up in the slot and mirrored receivers perfectly. He made two pass breakups, including a near-interception where he jumped a route and extended to catch the ball; he couldn't quite keep his feet in-bounds, though. Even though Baker is not very big (listed at 5-foot-10, 180 pounds), there's no doubting his tackling ability and physicality. He will come into the play hard and wrap up whenever possible."
