RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Will provide depth at tackle in 2012.
Baker will start at left tackle.
When healthy, Baker is one of the league's best left tackles, as seen by the Falcons being one of the best rushing teams in 2008. The key words there however are "when healthy," which is something Baker struggled with in his rookie season.
Atlanta's other first-round draft pick Baker is currently being groomed for the starting left tackle job--the most important position on the line to protect a right-handed quarterback's blind spot. Baker's success this season is crucial to the Falcons' offense, which is projected to have one of the worst o-lines in the league.
