Jon Baldwin is a very important piece of the offensive puzzle moving forward for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2012 and beyond. Whether or not the front office locks up Dwayne Bowe, the team drafted Baldwin as their No. 1 choice in the 2011 NFL Draft to become an impact wideout on the field. But he can only do that if he has the offense down for new coordinator Brian Daboll. So far, so good.
Baldwin commented in a recent interview posted at the Kansas City Star that the repetition from the recent Chiefs mini-camp helped to cement Daboll's offense for him and that it's "becoming second nature" at this point.
"I would definitely say it's becoming second nature now," said Baldwin. "Every single day we watch the tape. We install those plays and go over those plays before practice. We have walkthroughs and then we run those plays in practice. Then we also make the corrections on the film.
"It's definitely doing the same thing over and over and it's starting to become repetitive, so I would definitely say it's becoming second nature."
When asked about how it compared with the offense last year, Baldwin kept to the same script about repetition and learning.
"You just gotta learn," said Baldwin. "You learn and take it in stride and just keep building and taking notes. You study those notes and it just becomes second nature to you if you do those things."
Based on the dynamic catches reportedly coming out of mini-camp last week, the Chiefs can look forward to a potential breakout season for their young wideout.
