Jason Baker | PComplete player profile

s5745.jpgFull Name: Jason Baker

Born: May 17, 1978 Fort Wayne, IN

Height: 6-2

Weight: 205 lbs.

Age: 27

Pos: P

Experience: 5 years

College: Iowa

Insider Analysis in.gifGrade70Expert's TakeBaker is a highly skilled directional punter. His greatest strength is his ability to place the ball. He has the ability to kick away from a dangerous returner and excels at putting the ball inside the 20. He is versatile enough to handle kickoff duties. He doesn't have great leg strength. His hang time suffers somewhat and his distance isn't great.

Full Name: Matthew Thomas Schobel

Born: November 4, 1978 Columbus, TX

Height: 6-5

Weight: 255 lbs.

Age: 27

Pos: TE

Experience: 4 years

College: TCU

Drafted: Year:2002 Round:3 Pick:2, Bengals

Insider Analysis in.gifGrade69Expert's TakeSchobel listed as Cincinnati's No. 2 tight end. He has a good combination of size, speed and athletic ability. He is primarily their pass-catching tight end, and he will come in on three-receiver sub package. He will line up on the line of scrimmage or in the backfield as an H-back. He is a fluid athlete who has good initial quickness, agility and balance. He has reliable hands, will catch the ball away from his body and , will make the tough catch over the middle and in a crowd. He does a good job of shielding off defenders with his body. He is a good route-runner, is quick coming in and out of his breaks and has the speed to stretch the secondary. He has a good knack for finding the open area in the zone. However, Schobel is a liability in the run game and is a lot better receiver than he is a run blocker. He does not have good upper- or lower-body strength, he comes off the ball too high, lacks explosion at contact and gets stuffed at the point of attack or gets knocked off his feet. He is a better space blocker than an in-line blocker and does a decent job of getting to linebackers at the second level. Overall, Schobel is a little one-dimensional and needs to improve his run blocking. However, he is a threat in the passing game because of his speed, and that, along with his age and overall athletic ability, gives him a lot of upside.

Full Name: Chris Baker

Born: November 18, 1979 Queens, NY

Height: 6-3

Weight: 258 lbs.

Age: 26

Pos: TE

Experience: 4 years

College: Michigan State

Drafted: Year:2002 Round:3 Pick:23, Jets

Insider Analysis in.gifGrade73Expert's TakeBaker has adequate size for the position and is a fluid athlete. He has decent running ability and very good hands. He can catch the ball away from his body and make the difficult catch over his shoulder. He adjusts well to the ball when it is in the air. He is a good target in the red zone, as he can screen a defender from the ball. He is a strong runner after the catch, but lacks the speed and elusiveness to be a serious homerun threat. He lacks the burst and quickness to create separation from defenders and tends to round off his cuts. He does not show a great awareness in attacking coverages and has a difficult time getting off a jam at the line of scrimmage. He has the size and strength to be an effective blocker, but is very inconsistent. He works with a poor base and has poor technique as a blocker. He also lacks the lateral movement necessary to sustain contact. He often gets overextended and is not able to maintain contact. He needs to develop more of a nasty attitude and become more consistent in all phases of his game.

Full Name: Reginald Clemen Howard

Born: May 17, 1977 Memphis, TN

Height: 6-0

Weight: 185 lbs.

Age: 28

Pos: CB

Experience: 6 years

College: Memphis

Insider Analysis in.gifGrade70Expert's TakeHoward is coming off an extremely disappointing season. In one season he went from the team's No. 2 corner to a No. 4 who barely saw the field. He was a talented player when they signed him as a free agent from Carolina. He was tough, physical and had solid cover skills. He is still young, and we believe he still has some of those traits. For whatever reason, he landed in coach Nick Saban's doghouse in Miami and lost his confidence. He still has the potential to be a No. 2 corner in this league.

Full Name: Brian Williams

Born: July 2, 1979 High Point, NC

Height: 5-11

Weight: 207 lbs.

Age: 26

Pos: CB

Experience: 4 years

College: North Carolina State

Drafted: Year:2002 Round:4 Pick:7, Vikings

Insider Analysis in.gifGrade70Expert's TakeWilliams is a very versatile defensive back, having played corner, safety and nickel back. Initially, the Vikings designated him their transition player, but they lifted that designation in light of new salary numbers put into effect by the new collective bargaining agreement. He is a solidly built player who has adequate size to play wherever he lines up. He has very good upper-body strength and uses his hands well in block protection. He is at his best close to the line of scrimmage. He does an excellent job of getting his hands on and rerouting receivers, and he can muscle most receivers out of their routes. He has quick feet and is very smooth in his movement. He has very little wasted motion in his hip turn. He plays a very physical game and shows very good body control and change-of-direction skills. He has good leaping ability and will compete for the jump ball. He also matches up well with backs and wide receivers in man coverage. He is a strong tackler when he gets to the ball, but will ocassionally become overaggressive and miss a tackle in the open field. He is a little inconsistent in his ability to cover the vertical routes and has a difficult time with smaller, quicker receivers. He lacks the elite speed and movement to be a true shutdown corner, but is very adequate in coverage in the short to intermediate area. His ball skills are more than adequate and he makes a significant contribution on special teams.

Full Name: Andre Dyson

Born: May 25, 1979 Logan, UT

Height: 5-10

Weight: 183 lbs.

Age: 26

Pos: CB

Experience: 5 years

College: Utah

Drafted: Year:2001 Round:2 Pick:29, Titans

Insider Analysis in.gifGrade69Expert's TakeDyson is a young player who did a pretty solid job for Seattle last season and it is a little surprising to see the Seahawks cut him loose. He was slowed late in the year due to injuries, but over the course of the season he was a solid contributor. He definitely played well enough to garner attention form other teams. Dyson still has the physical skills to be a No. 2 corner in the NFL.

Just some thoughts :)

the good thing is they are respectable - say for nickle backs and may not command as much money for the fact that they aren't starters now....

the two TEs are nice too... especially the one from the raiders who beat out Doug Jolley til he got injured...
