1 month ago

The New England Patriots have selected wide receiver Javon Baker from the University of Central Florida with the 110th pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Baker spent his first two seasons at Alabama where he saw minimal playing time before transferring to UCF in 2022. In his two seasons at UCF, Baker caught 108 passes for 1,935 yards and 12 touchdowns and finished the 2023 season as a first team All-Big 12 Conference wide receiver. 

 

 

At 6’1” and 208 lbs. he has the size to succeed on the outside in the NFL and has the downfield playmaking to match. He didn’t post the greatest 40-yard dash time at the combine with a 4.54 second time but he has a 37 inch vertical leap to make up for it. As Drake Maye’s new number one receiver, Baker has a huge opportunity to fantasy relevance tied to the rookie 3rd overall pick. You could see Baker get drafted as high as the early second round in rookie drafts and could create a fun best ball stack with his new quarterback.
