DeAndre Baker’s red flags sparked Giants NFL draft ‘battle’

The Giants’ decision to trade up and selected DeAndre Baker in the 2019 NFL Draft apparently did not come easily.

“There was a battle in our building on whether we were going to take DeAndre or not,” a source privy to the Giants’ draft thinking told The Post, “because the story was he had to have his a– kicked every day to work hard at Georgia — to even go to practice. We knew that and we still drafted him, and from Day 1 it was like taking a guy in the first round that you had to teach nearly everything to.”
