Pro Football Focus tends to select different players for its All-American teams than other media outlets, as PFF grades players on the finer points of the game and projects them as future NFL players rather than focusing on collegiate statistics.
Bleacher Report's Matt Miller told Eleven Warriors last month that Baker could be a top-20 pick if he declares for the 2018 NFL draft.
