Dorian Baker makes sick one-handed grab during Kentucky Wildcats practice

Don't be surprised if Dorian Baker ends up being the Bengals' best pass-catcher in 2015. He's got that kind of potential.

Dorian Baker has been one of the biggest stars of Kentucky Wildcats training camp thus far.

At 6-foot-3, 208-pounds, Baker is built "like a brick wall," as Patrick Towles described. "I wouldn't fight him. I think there's some of our offensive line who wouldn't."

As physically imposing as Baker is, he's got the hands to go with it, as evidenced by this sick catch made in practice this week:

Last season, Baker played in 10 games, grabbing 19 catches for 199 yards. His lone touchdown of his true freshman campaign came against the Ohio Bobcats in Week 2.

New UK offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson lpws the importance of having a big pass-catcher like Baker can provide an offense.

"Anytime you've got outside receivers who can be a threat, it's a huge difference, in any offense not just mine," Dawson said. "You think about it, if you've got guys on the outside who are big time threats, then playing man-to-man coverage on them is tough."
