Scouting the Big 12: Baylor

Since the retirement of Grant Teaff its' been a horrible situation in Waco as the Baylor Bears constantly suffer through two-or-three win campaigns. As one would expect the Baylor program has recently put minimal prospects into the NFL and though hopes are high for new coach Guy Morriss, the outlook remains bleak for draft-eligible Bears.

It is possible not a single Baylor player will be drafted in 2004 after only one was tabbed last April. On offense receiver Robert Quiroga comes up with the tough reception during the games important moments. A thinly built wide out, Quiroga should get an invite to camp next July and could catch on as a fifth receiver. Linebacker John Garrett has been productive at both the middle and weak side positions, displaying a lot of skill early in college. Coming of a serious knee injury that sidelined him half of last season, Garrett needs to improve on prior form to get late round consideration in 2003. Safety Derrick Cash is a hard hitting run defender that covers well in zone. He's best up in the box or in a two deep system which does not ask him to go sideline-to-sideline in centerfield. Cash could catch on as a back-up and special teams player.
