The Kansas City Chiefs used the 26th selection in the 2011 NFL draft on Pittsburgh WR Jonathan Baldwin. The pick does a number of things including filling a need. The Chiefs now enter the 2011 season with a physically gifted receiver to pair alongside WR Dwayne Bowe.
I haven't done all my homework on Baldwin but my early reaction is that I like the pick a lot. Lots of potential at a position of need is the key to remember, I think.
Baldwin spoke with the local media following the news he was headed to Kansas City, portions of which were televised on Metro Sports in Kansas City. [Editor's note: I hope you recorded Metro Sports' coverage. Tons of great stuff from the Chiefs draft party.]
Baldwin says he had a feeling the Chiefs might select him. "I actually visited them," he said. "I sat down and talked a lot with coach Haley and everybody else. They liked me a lot so I was thinking I would end up there."
