10. Zack Baun EDGE/LB, Wisconsin
Sometimes guys are just fun to watch and that is what I get wrapped up doing every time I watch Baun play. He is one of those defenders that just plays with his hair on fire like Kenneth Murray or Isaiah Simmons and you almost can’t take your eyes off of him.
Athletically he isn’t a freak, but he has two things that make him exciting. First is the aforementioned hair-trigger that you see from guys like David Long and Jayon Brown on the current Titans roster.
The other is that he is so flexible and good with his hands that when Wisconsin used him on the EDGE he looked so much like T.J. Watt that it is scary.
Something about that lean, not afraid to wipe out motion as an EDGE rusher gets me, and when the sacks and athleticism back it up then I get very intrigued.
Another fun part of his game is that he is going to be a hybrid EDGE/LB at the next level which is EXACTLY what Mike Vrabel wants.
You can have him in a 4-3 look on the outside or you can shift him to EDGE on 3-4 looks. Going a step beyond that versatility you could even play him inside on 3-4 looks and put Rashaan Evans on the EDGE and get creative with your blitz packages knowing that Baun and Brown are both athletic enough to cover the middle of the field if you want them to do that.
