David Andrew Baas (born September 28, 1981 in Bixby, Oklahoma) is an American football center who plays for the San Francisco 49ers of the NFL. He was drafted by the 49ers in the second round (33rd pick overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft.


High school years

Baas attended Riverview High School in Sarasota, Florida and was a letterman in football and track and field. In football, he was awarded USA Today All-USA honors. During his junior year, he recorded a school record 70 pancake blocks.[1]

College career

Baas played college football as a Michigan Wolverine, where he earned All-Big Ten Conference honors three times. He started at left guard until the middle of his senior season, when he was moved to center. As a senior in 2004, he was the Hugh H. Rader awardee as the Wolverines' best offensive lineman, a finalist for the Outland Trophy, given to college football's best interior lineman, and a co-recipient of the Dave Rimington Trophy, awarded to college football's top center. He was a consensus All-America selection as well.[1] He majored in general studies.

Professional career


The 49ers drafted Baas in the second round (33rd overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft. He played in 13 games that year and started in 5 of them. Baas' first game was in the historical Mexico City game on October 2 against the Arizona Cardinals as a special teams player. On December 4, he made his first start as a right guard against the same Cardinals team when Eric Heitmann was moved to center.[1]


Baas played in all 16 games in 2006, mainly as a special teams player and as an extra eligible tackle on the offensive line.[1]


In 2007, Baas started in 8 of the 15 games that he played in at right guard, after then-starter Justin Smiley was put on injured reserve with a shoulder injury.[1]


Baas is slated to be the starting right guard for the 49ers in 2008.


Baas will be starting at left guard for entirety of the 2009 season.


Baas is married to his wife, Elizabeth, and they reside in Sarasota, Florida.[1]
