Baker was a clear priority for the Giants, who traded back into the first round to nab the former Georgia Bulldog when he was still available at pick No. 30. Though he doesn't have the classic speed that most teams covet in a boundary corner (4.52 40-yard dash), Baker plays with tremendous technique, instinct and physicality. He had seven interceptions during collegiate career and took home the Jim Thorpe Award, presented to the nation's top defensive back, as a senior. Baker has a strong chance to start opposite Grant Haley in New York's secondary.
