Take
The AFL commissioner's son will get a chance to play right away with Atlanta. Their goal was to start rebuilding their shaky offensive line with a young tackle. While Baker doesn't have the athleticism of the other tackles selected ahead of him, he's a power blocker who is good fit for the power rushing scheme that offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey will be installing.
