08/07/2012 - Top-five Nebraska prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 4. DT Baker Steinkuhler...Another talented but underachieving player on the Cornhuskers' defense, Steinkuhler will be entering his third season as a starting defensive tackle for Nebraska in 2012. Born and raised in Lincoln, his brother (Ty) and father (Dean) both starred for Huskers with his father, who was a first round pick (No. 2 overall) in the 1984 NFL Draft, winning the Outland Trophy and Lombardi Award. Baker was considered one of the best offensive line recruits out of high school, but moved to the defensive side of the ball during his redshirt year in 2008. After spending his freshman season as a reserve, he started every game the past two seasons, combining for 86 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks. He was an All-Conference Honorable Mention pick last season and did a nice job stepping up when Jared Crick went down with an injury. With a 6-6, 290-pound frame, Steinkuhler has a mammoth body with a large wingspan, but tends to play too tall and has obvious struggles with leverage at the point of attack. He is a relentless player and is known as a competitive hustler on every play, but he has a tough time breaking free after getting tied up and has been more of a space-eater than penetrator. Although it will be near-impossible for him to live up to his father's legacy at Nebraska (Dean Steinkuhler scored on the legendary "Fumblerooski" play in the Orange Bowl in 1984), Steinkuhler has the raw measureables that will land him in an NFL camp and possibly earn him a mid-to-late round draft choice. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
