Default Chris Baker?

I havent noticed him as much recently. Has he been playing? Also, has anyone heard anything about him beyond seeing him play or seeing him active? Has there been any interviews with him, stories about him, or questions about him addressed to the coaches?

Im just curious because, depending on how good he is (or put another way: how much they like him), it could affect the draft. I see Dan Williams being discussed as a 1st and 2nd, which is substantially higher than were he was much of the season. Beyond he and Cody, there doesnt seem to be a lot of 320+ lb NT prospects.

I think he's been active for two games. We all gave him pretty big expectations for an UDFA NT.

Nah, Baker is a HOF player waiting to happen, just like Hillis, but McDaniels doesn't want to play him because he hates him too. Yeah, that's it.

He is raw.. playing NT I think it takes time, he has shown that he commands a double team though. He has pushed back a couple of players in short yardage

He was active for one game... vs Pitt and did not see playing time.

Chris Baker will NEVER make it in the NFL.

I aggree it is to early to say one way or another. One thing though Denver shouldnt rest the future of the position on him. If they were tottally blown away with him he would have gotten play time or would have been active. Marcus Thomas has never played the position and is number two on the DC. So unless it clicks for him this next season i wouldnt expect to much out of him. Denver is middle of the road with runs up the middle on D. So there is a need to get better.

Nope. Wasn't too early when I said it in April either.

He's a failure. Failures never win.
