Pos: 
Nice-sized cornerback best facing the action. Full-time starter the past three seasons who led the Wildcats with seven pass breakups as a senior. Has excellent length, plays physical football and battles opponents throughout the route. Keeps the action in front of him, locates the pass in the air and displays a burst out of his plant. Works to get upfield and defend the run.
Neg: 
Slow to transition off the line and loses a half-step to opponents off the snap. Does too much faceguarding and rarely gets his head back around to track the pass in the air. Does too much trailing opponents in coverage.
Analysis: 
Baity possesses terrific size but lacks next-level speed and really struggles making plays when his back is to the ball. He's a zone cornerback and who must stand out on special teams to make a next-level roster.
