Jonathan Baldwin Selected by Kansas City with the 26th Pick of the 2011 NFL Draft

After the Baltimore Ravens seemingly ran out of time with their selection, Pittsburgh Panthers wide receiver Jonathan Baldwin was snatched up by the Kansas City Chiefs with the 26th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. Kansas City's pickup let us give a sigh of relief here at BECB as the Big East's streak with at least one player selected in the first round of the NFL Draft will continue for another year (now 2007-2011).

Last season, Baldwin caught 53 passes for 822 yards and 5 touchdowns. He had 16 receiving touchdowns on 128 receptions in his three years with the Panthers. Baldwin didn't have elite quarterbacks throwing to him at Pittsburgh. The situation won't change when he gets to Kansas City. I'm not sure whether or not Baldwin's stock was harmed by his comments at the end of the 2010 season about his decision to enter the draft. Namely, "Heck yeah I'm leaving, it can only get worse." To Baldwin's credit, when he made the statement, Todd Graham was not yet the coach of the Panthers.
