    Interesting. It's the other two guys on that line that I really like, Winn and Crawford. Never even looked into Baker.

    He's also got a private meeting with the Vikings set up. For a player who's virtually unknown on the interwebbings draft dork community, he seems to be getting a lot of individual attention.

    A web search of "Chase Baker" and "Wes Bunting" didn't turn up much... Player must suck.

    Seriously, he's way too small to play end. Wonder if he reminds Rob a little of Kelly Gregg who played NT for Rex.

    Sounds like he was purely a 2 gapper block absorbing nose tackle at Boise State. But he's an undersized one who weighed in a 290 lbs. at the Boise St. Pro Day, so it will be sure to make the fatty lovers' heads explode if he came to Dallas to play nose.

    Very interesting! Out of the four starters on Boise's D-line, he was the least heralded, but he was a strong run defender. The conventional wisdom is that he won't be drafted, but could be a priority FA. Probably would be a 3-4 DE. We have had quite a bit of success with our 7th rounders and FA's over the last few years! Also, Tyler Shoemaker who was Moore's go-to guy this year ran a 4.44 at Boise's pro-day yesterday. He might up making a very nice slot receiver. Moore also had a great day. If he is there in the 6th or 7th I would not mind taking a flier on him. Here is the link to Boise's pro-day from the Statesman:

    It only looked like Boise State football coach Chris Petersen was running the passing drills Thursday for pro day at the Caven-Williams Sports Complex, where scouts and coaches representing 28 NFL teams evaluated last year’s seniors.
    Petersen held a script that indicated the order in which quarterback Kellen Moore would make each throw, designed to give the one wide receiver, one tight end and one tailback available ample rest.

    Are these official visits?

    Sounds like a potential 4-3 DT.... I'm just saying!

    Agree. He does not look like a 3-4 NT or 3-4 DE.

    Why not a 3-4 DE?

    I basing that on the fact that teams usually like 5-techs to be taller than 6-1.
