SB Nation is covering all of the 2011 NFL Draft results.
It's easy to fall in love with Baldwin as a prospect. He has excellent size and good speed once he really gets moving. His hands are good and he catches the ball routinely away from his frame. However, there are a lot of questions out there about Baldwins effort. He's had some lapses of inconsistency throughout his career, which are concerning.
Still, it can be a little hard to judge Baldwin. He's never had a great quarterback throwing him the ball. As a junior, the Pittsburgh quarterback play was especially poor. Baldwin still managed to finish the season with 53 receptions for 822 yards and five touchdowns.
In May of 2009, Baldwin was charged with assault, harassment and disorderly conduct. The charges were later dropped.
