    Apparently the Dolphins had a private workout with the Vandals running back.

    Pro Day
    James Baker, RB (6-foot 1/4, 237 pounds) — Baker ran the 40-yard dash in 4.55 and 4.56 seconds. He had a 37-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-2 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.56 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.45 seconds. He performed 27 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. Baker — who was Idaho’s leading rusher in 2013 with 617 yards and six touchdowns — looked good catching the ball in the positional drills.
    Baker could get picked up by an NFL team as a free agent following the 2014 NFL Draft.

    He looks huge and moves like a natural athlete. Maybe could do with a haircut. He could be handy in cold weather games.

    I was hoping for more than an Acorn in the RB position. We'll see how it goes.

    Baker is no acorn, he just about a full oak. Big man reminds me a little of Earnest Byner.

    That's where Stinky Schlereth went to school. Might not be a bad late pick.
