ST. JOSEPH | The pressure already was weighing on Jonathan Baldwin. He was feeling it.

Baldwin, the Chiefs’ first-round draft pick, a 6-foot-4, 230-pound wide receiver from the University of Pittsburgh, signed his contract eight days ago, joining his new teammates and facing the expectations that no rookie — especially an early draft pick — can avoid.

Earlier this week, Baldwin said he was ready for this challenge.

“Every day they pick out a few rookies who have to sing,” Baldwin said. “So I think today is my day.

“I’ve got a couple of hours to figure out what I’m going to sing.”

It was the first test for Baldwin, whose career will come with expectations and questions, particularly after he called out his former college quarterback and criticized his coaches. Baldwin said he was prepared for whatever lay ahead, whether that’s singing in a hazing ritual at a team meeting or playing his first NFL game as the Chiefs’ likely No. 2 receiver.

“Only thing I can do, only thing I can control now is how hard I work,” he said. “I really can’t say anything about what everybody else says. I’m just going to continue to do the things that I’ve been doing.”

Coach Todd Haley said his newest project — he was a receivers coach before becoming a coordinator and head coach, and he still takes an interest in wideouts — appears to have the tools necessary to be a standout NFL player. Baldwin is big and fast, and Haley said there’s more to Baldwin than the speed limit often associated with being a possession receiver.

“The indicators are good,” Haley said. “Speed is not an issue. I think it’s easy to just say he’s a big possession guy. Until we get going and pads are on and these guys get their legs under them, I don’t know that we’ll see really all that’s there.”

Haley said he caught a glimpse of Baldwin’s focus on Tuesday, the team’s day off. Haley was headed toward the Chiefs’ offices at the Griffon Indoor Sports Complex at Missouri Western, and there was Baldwin, hoofing back to the team’s dormitory, on the hottest day of the year.

When Baldwin could’ve stayed in the air conditioning, ignoring coaches’ suggestions that players take care of their bodies, he spent time proving that he not only can catch and run. He can follow his coaches’ instructions, too.

“Good signs that a guy is focused in the right place, and he wants to succeed,” Haley said. “I’m getting late-night texts from him, and those are all good signs.

“I felt good when I saw a guy not worrying about much else other than doing the things that we’re asking him to do.”

Baldwin spent Friday in the team’s conditioning area after appearing to suffer a leg injury a day earlier. Haley has said he plans to take a cautious approach with all injuries.

Baldwin caught 127 passes for 2,325 yards in three seasons at Pittsburgh. He raised concerns before the NFL combine, being quoted by a website that he thought his coaches were “purposely trying to disrupt my draft stock.”

He showed no such signs of outspokenness this week, when he was short and direct with his answers. He wouldn’t even reveal who his NFL idols are, saying he preferred to avoid answering that question.

Whatever baggage he might have picked up in Pittsburgh, Baldwin connected enough with the Chiefs that they were willing to draft him. Not only that, Baldwin has connected with Kansas City’s fans, too. His Twitter page has more than 8,000 followers, and he occasionally tweets about the Chiefs and his expectations.

He did share one goal:

“Win the Super Bowl,” he said. “Same goal as everybody else.”

Not long after that, Baldwin headed toward the locker room, where he said he would decide on a song to serenade his teammates with that afternoon.

“I’m going to get it going in the locker room in a little bit,” he said, turning the conversation briefly back to football. “I try to do everything. I don’t want to do just one thing. I just try to work hard at everything.

“You’ve got to do all the little things, extra, working extra, just doing all the things that you can to make yourself different.”

not a big fan, honestly. Not as good as Bulaga, IMO.

If I could chose one Hawkeye to have a good NFL career out of next years squad that will be in next years draft, it would be Marvin McNutt.

If we can get him the ball like Stanzi did last year...he should climb up boards leading up to the draft.

I wouldnt be surprised to see him go in the second round or so, but be looked at as a 4th or 5th rounder prior to the draft.

Jonathan Baldwin off to slow start with Chiefs

The Chiefs drafted wideout Jonathan Baldwin in the first round partly because they were very thin at the position.

Jerheme Urban looked like a returning starter, and someone like Kevin Curtis played snaps for the Chiefs in the playoffs just a week after signing with them. Not to mention Dwayne Bowe is in a contract year.

The Chiefs would love for Baldwin to step into a sizable role right away, but he’s off to a sluggish start. The Pitt product has reportedly struggled to get off the line of scrimmage because he’s getting jammed. He’s also dealt with a hamstring injury, and is currently listed as a third-team receiver, no higher than fifth on the depth chart. Baldwin says he’s “100%” now.

Urban remains a starter, while free agent pickup Steve Breaston is set to play the slot role. This group still has holes. Baldwin gained 14 yards in his preseason debut, playing with the deep reserves.

That production sadly was good for second among Chiefs wideouts in receiving yards during an ugly preseason outing.

Not really surprising.. He never had to deal with press coverage in college. And Haley has never been one to throw a rookie into the starting role. I'm pretty confident he will be no lower then the 3rd receiver come 1st game of the regular season

Yeah, pretty common for someone thats been hurt all of camp not to be starting. Especially when they are rookies. Dwayne Bowe didn't start his rookie year in the starting lineup either, and he even had a full offsesaon with the team without any lockout bullshit.

RotoWorld picked up on a tweet from Nick Wright at the beginning of camp about the struggle to get off jams. Now I've seen that same comment in a couple of different places (with no reference to the source), and I have no doubt that Nick Wright's off the cuff comment while watching a WR drill has become "fact". I also just noticed that ProFootballTalk is tied to NBCSports, as is RotoWorld. Same source, and that source is Nick Wright. Ugh.

In fact, here was the "news" blurb from RotoWorld:

First-round pick Jonathan Baldwin has reportedly shown an "absolute inability" to deal with press coverage so far in Chiefs camp.
Observed Nick Wright of 610 Kansas City, "When he's been jammed, I haven't seen him catch one." Wright concedes that Baldwin has impressed when faced with off coverage, but defensive coordinators aren't dumb enough to let him get a running start. It's notable that the K.C. Star has predicted Jerheme Urban will start opposite Dwayne Bowe this season. Steve Breaston would be the slot receiver, relegating Baldwin to a No. 4 receiver role

Bowe was a game one starter for an injured Kennison.

Bowe was a game one starter for an injured Kennison.

Kennison got hurt in the first game, so even though Bowe played all the snaps but one as a starter, he didn't "open" as a starter. And it was also ONLY because of injury that he was forced into the starting lineup so soon.

I'm pretty sure he started at #2 before the injury.

Has inability to get off the press ever been a long-term limiting factor for a WR? Seems that would be about as coachable/learnable as it gets. Unlike say vertical jump, jump timing, hands, etc.

Bowe played 2 seasons before Haley. In those seasons, the first two of his career, he had 146 catches, 2017 yards, and 12 TDs.

First 2 seasons for:
Reggie Wayne: 86, 1061, 4
Roddy White: 59, 952, 3
Larry Fitzgerald: 161, 2189, 18
Calvin Johnson: 126, 2087, 16

Haley likes to bring his Rookies along slowly. Nobody is a sacred cow, especially when they haven't proven shit in this league. The guy hasn't even earned his Arrowhead yet. How's he going to be penciled in as a starter in a Haley offense?

Haley has a history of using the depth chart as a motivational tool. Did it with Bowe, did it with DJ, does it with Charles. What makes you think this is any different? Too bad ProFootballTalk has proven more often than not lately that they don't know what they're talking about when it comes to the Chiefs.

Well yeah, but when you compare it to the all star the Broncos have in Brandon Lloyd, you can see where KnoMo is coming from calling Bowe a bust. I mean, look at that guy's first few years. Pure legend.

When I saw him in a pre-draft spot on the NFLN it looked like he couldn't speak english at all.
Although, a sub 60 IQ will make a guy look foolish from time to time.

Forgive my lack of panic. I am concerned about his hamstring injury. But, that's about it. Short camp, don't expect him to be doing great. He was a lower first round pick. Those are usually guys who either have elite tools without polish..... or polished guys without elite tools.

Baldwin has elite tools.

In the preseason game, he made a play on a ball that was behind the defender's back that was impressive. They didn't count it as a catch, but from what I saw, it was one. Even if not, his ability to track the ball in the air and adjust to it was very impressive. He has very good hands.

I understand why a fan of a rival would find encouragment in this article though.

Baldwin was a big reach by the Chiefs. I was surprised Pioli made such a pick. There were numerous questions regarding Baldwin’s work ethic and maturity. They had a pretty solid draft after taking Baldwin, but that pick still puzzles me. Good teams don’t draft for need, they draft for the best talent available regardless of position or need.

Alright SNR, let's take this shit to DC...

(To preface, I didn't mention race in terms of Baldwin's speaking ability, 'lil Giffy did).

The fact that you say that black people and white people are not the same, while true due to skin color, in terms of everything else it is ultimately bullshit.

It's purely nature vs. nurture.

I'll give you an example: My area, while growing up, was vastly white. I had a good friend who happened to be a black guy. He was adopted by a couple where the Mother was from Trinidad (a nurse) and the Father was white (a teacher). They'd also adopted another child (a daughter who was also black).
This guy thrived in his environment. He spoke perfect English, played excellent violin, played a wicked bass guitar in my metal band, graduated from a prestigious college and is now making a ton of dough in the financial industry.
His sister was into boys and I never found out what became of her.
My point is, Baldwin is probably a "dim bulb" to begin with and any nurturing wouldn't help him, much like GoChiefs.:D

I'd be curious why you think Black people and White people are different when nurture is taken out of the equation.

BTW - I have plenty of examples of stupid White guys who speak at the same level as Baldwin.

I am sure that there are some physiological (sp?) differences that probably contribute partially to the differences in the speech of different races.

I will concur, however, that the predominant and deciding factor is the environment in which a person is raised.

I can't explain it. Think Wayne Brady. Dude's not an Uncle Tom, but he can talk white with the best of them. And yet you see him rap on Whose Line? A lot better than Greg Proops or Colin Mochrie.

That's not racist. I'm just saying black people ARE inherently different. It's really tough to find white people that act totally black or black people that act totally white.

You're a ****ing moron.

Baldwin's speech patterns are perfectly normal and understandable.

Besides, have you ever heard Dwayne Bowe talk? He came off like an idiot when he was a rookie and he scored 15 TDs last year.

Just shut your ****ing mouth, dumbass Chargers fan.

Both Bowe and Baldwin may speak poorly due to to a lack of confidence in their abilities. This may be due to the fact that they've never been educated in the fine arts of English talking like me did.

Ever ask black people to impersonate how white people talk?

Funny as hell.

Here's an Indian fella who can speak like a Chinese man based purely on nurture:

There may have been a fight or "scuffle" in the locker room between Jones and Baldwin. I am not buying any thing major into it. This could be a learning lesson and IN HOUSE with Haley taking care of the situation. It's just too bad that Baldwin hurts his wrist setting him back during preseason.

Baldwin is trying to build a repore with Coach Haley texting him and has been working hard. Baldwin is going to be just fine, may have more hurt feelings pride than just a injured wrist.

Baldwin's focus is on getting better at fighting. He has some work to do still.

The only true difference is that Black people have black skin and an extra bone in their ankle. The extra bone might explain why Wayne Brady raps so well.:D (j/k)

Extra bone? LOLWUT?
