More Pac-12 defensive backs.

NCAA Football: Arizona State at Washington Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

The Pac-12 continues to see secondary talent find its way to the next level pretty early in the 2017 NFL Draft. This time it’s Washington Huskies safety Budda Baker, who is headed over to the Arizona Wildcats with the fourth pick of the second round!

Look at the latest scouting report on Baker from SB Nation, who could help bolster an Arizona secondary that is already among the NFL’s elite.

Baker’s success in Washington was remarkable. In his three-year collegiate career, he totaled 199 tackles, 18 pass defenses, 13 tackles for loss, five interceptions, four sacks, and three forced fumbles. He was a two-time first-team all-Pac-12 player and was also a consensus All-American in his junior season when he led the Huskies in tackles and tackles for loss.

Baker is the second Washington Husky taken in the second round (joining Kevin King, who was picked with the first overall pick this round).
