Player Overview

After redshirting in 2010, Baucus has started 38 games at the all-important left tackle position, helping protect the likes of future NFL players Nick Foles, Matt Scott and KaDeem Carey. The former prep basketball player is one of four returning starters up front for Arizona, a unit which has ranked among the conference's best in recent years.

Aiding Baucus and the rest of the Wildcats' offensive line is coach Rich Rodriguez's scheme, which spreads out defenses and generally gets the ball out quickly.

Strengths Weaknesses

Baucus boasts an intriguing build with great height and long arms. He possesses enough initial quickness to handle most of the conference's speed rushers due to a smooth kick-slide and his length allows him to catch defenders that his feet can't keep up with.

Where Baucus struggles is with leverage and balance. Baucus' top-heavy high-cut frame makes him susceptible to counter moves and too often he's forced to lunge at defenders, as a result.

Scouts will appreciate Baucus' size and durability, but if he's going to be the first Arizona offensive lineman drafted since Eben Britton in 2009, Baucus may want to explore playing right tackle or even moving inside to guard at a senior all-star game, as this is where he projects best against NFL speed.
