[tps_title]S Budda Baker, Washington[/tps_title]

One of my harder evaluations in this thus far is Washington safety Budda Baker. The Cowboys would likely have to target Baker with their first round pick, and plenty in (myself included) have been expecting the board to lean CB with this pick anyway.

Budda Baker is capable of playing some as a Nickel CB, but projects as another versatile piece for to use all over the back end of his in 2017 and beyond. is a safety to build around for the Cowboys, and any combination of , JJ Wilcox, or and should have Dallas feeling comfortable with their depth at the position.

Baker's instincts and ability to play down in the box might make him the ideal rookie, long-term answer next to Jones in this 2017 draft though – a player that would find a way to improve this defense the second he steps onto the field with the Cowboys.
