04/18/2012 - The Lions closed their pre-draft visitation period with a flurry Wednesday, hosting a group of local prospects, most of whom were not invited to the NFL Combine. Running backs Edwin Baker of Michigan State and Jonas Gray of Notre Dame were among the players to participate in the Combine-style workout, detroitlions.com reported. Teams are allowed 30 pre-draft visits, but, according to the Lions' website, teams are allowed to host additional local prospects. Local players for the Lions are defined as players from Detroit high schools or colleges, or those who went to high school or still have legal guardians that live in the Detroit area. - Chris McCosky, The Detroit News

03/15/2012 - Michigan State Pro Day: RB Edwin Baker (5-9, 210), All-Big Ten as a sophomore but a back-up as a junior, decided to forfeit his final season with the Spartans. But after a so-so showing at the NFL Combine with an average 40-yard clocking of 4.53 seconds, "Rock" ran looser and more like the breakaway back opponents had chased into end zones. His average 40 time Wednesday afternoon was 4.43, with a low of 4.35. He also felt confident that a lack of wear and tear on his body, with just 462 career carries for 2,293 yards, would help him. Predecessor Javon Ringer rushed 390 times his senior season alone. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

01/06/2012 - Michigan State lost running back Edwin Baker and retained its defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi on Friday. Baker told The Associated Press he's skipping his senior season to enter the NFL draft. "I just feel I'm ready," he said in a telephone interview. Baker said he told Spartans coach Mark Dantonio of his decision Friday, a day after defensive tackle Jerel Worthy declared himself eligible for the draft. "He wants me back and said he'd love to have me back," Baker said. "But it's my decision." The AP left a message with Dantonio seeking comment on Baker's move. Baker ran for 665 yards and five touchdowns last season, sharing carries with Le'Veon Bell. The 5-foot-9, 210-pound Baker had 1,201 yards rushing and 13 TDs as a sophomore, earning All-Big Ten honors. "I'm healthy now and I don't want to get injured my senior year," he said. "And, I could come back and have a worse year." - AP Sports

01/02/2012 - Scouting the Michigan State running game: The numbers lie a bit here. Michigan State has been last in the Big Ten for most of the year in rushing, but the offensive line and RB Le'Veon Bell have emerged in the past few weeks, making this an offense with much more balance and ability to convert in short-yardage situations. The Spartans outrushed Wisconsin 190 to 126 in the Big Ten title game. - The Sports Xchange
