I'll save my excitement for Deandre Baker
Baker has been mentioned as a sleeper for Defensive Rookie of the Year honors, recognition that he downplayed. But there's no question, from a competition standpoint, he's not willing to give up an inch - not to anyone, anywhere.
"First pass that came my way [in rookie camp] had to be a breakup or an interception – I wuasn’t going to accept anything less," Baker said, and he did just that, knocking the ball away from the intended receiver. "Every play, every snap, everything I do on the field, I’ve got to show everybody the reason why the Giants picked DeAndre Baker. It’s part of the reason why I go so hard, because every play I’ve got something to prove and you can’t take one play off. When you set out to perfect your craft, there's always something to get better at, and I want to earn the right to be considered one of the best."
I'm not the biggest fan of the Lawrence pick and the Jones pick has grown on me more but honestly the only good thing to come out of the OBJ trade, is Baker.
This kid is going to replace Jenkins and from all reports was the biggest draft steal where the Giants grabbed him.
Can't wait for him and the combo of Love, Beal, Belantine, to be roaming around the secondary.
Love is suppose to be a hell of a player as well with potential to go to safety so that's a plus.
