David Baas School: Michigan
Ht: 6-4.5 Wt: 319 40: 5.08 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Three-year starter who's been an All-
Conference selection ever since his sophomore
campaign as well as an All-American the previous
two years. Big Ten Offensive Lineman of the
Year and co-winner of the Rimington Trophy
as a senior. Played center last year after
spending his first three seasons at offensive
Positives: Big, dominant blocker who drives
opponents into the ground. Quickly gets off the
snap into blocks, stays square and rarely gives
up an inch of room. Blocks with a wide base,
immediately gets his hands into opponents
and controls them once engaged at the point.
Anchors in pass protection or turns defenders
off the line, opening holes for the running game.
Seals defenders from the action with good body
positioning. Rarely gives up an inch of ground.
Displays good awareness and works well with
teammates. Adequate quickness kicking out
across the line.
Negatives: Not effective blocking on
the move. Lacks adjustment and body redirection.
Struggles against speedy, quick opponents.
Looked ordinary when used at center.
A productive collegiate lineman who's been a
dominant force the past three seasons, Baas
has the abilities to be a stalwart at the next level
if put in the proper system. Best at guard for a
power running offense or a system that keeps
his area responsibilities to a minimum. Won't
test well athletically, yet an underrated prospect
that can quickly move into a starting lineup at
the next level.
