Chiefs GM John Dorsey comments on Jon Baldwin

Jason Miller

We haven't heard much about Jon Baldwin, the KC Chiefs first round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. The Chiefs GM talks about where he's at.

The Kansas City Chiefs did not use a high pick on a wide receiver in the 2013 NFL Draft which suggests Jon Baldwin will get an opportunity to win the No. 2 job. Or perhaps he could play the slot. That's what GM John Dorsey suggested in an interview with 810 WHB's Kevin Kietzman this week.

"I think Jonathan's had a nice session with the coaches," Dorsey said. "I know coach is really excited to get together and begin to work and feel where Jon is. He has really nice size, very good hands. He's one of those guys who could possibly be an inside matchup as a slot receiver, a larger target.

"You'd like to see him be a little quicker in and out of his breaks but I think with David Culley working with him I think he'll understand what it takes to play a receiver at this position. I think he's a guy who's very prideful and sometimes it's good to push these prideful guys because they live up to their abilities."

Interesting. They talked about Baldwin maturing and understanding his role within the Chiefs, which is something a lot of young players go through.

Donnie Avery was also signed to a multi-year deal this offseason but Baldwin remains a key to the Chiefs offense. If they're going to develop into a competent offense, Baldwin needs to be part of that.
