QB impressed by rookie WR Doug Baldwin

Published on August 18, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

With so many big names and so much talent in the Seahawks’ group of wide receivers, it’s understandable that a diminutive, unheralded rookie could go unnoticed by most fans.

But Doug Baldwin has caught the eye of one Seahawks beat writer.

“He looks real comfortable out in the field. A real polished route runner,” Eric Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune said Monday on the Kevin Calabro Show. “Tarvaris Jackson mentioned him as one of the guys that kind of stood out when he was watching the first four or five days. Tarvaris seems to have a nice rapport him with as well.”

Baldwin went undrafted out of Stanford, where he was Andrew Luck’s favorite target in 2010. The 5-foot-10, 189-pound receiver led the Cardinal in catches (58), receiving yards (857) and receiving touchdowns (9) as a senior last season.

In Thursday’s preseason opener against San Diego, Baldwin caught a team-high four passes (for 29 yards), the first coming from Jackson and the other three coming from backup Charlie Whitehurst. Two of his catches went for first downs.

Williams thinks Baldwin could crack the Seahawks’ final roster as the team’s fifth or sixth receiver — presumably behind Sidney Rice, Mike Williams, Golden Tate, Ben Obomanu and fourth-round pick Kris Durham — but will also have to make an impact on special teams in order to do so.

Baldwin returned a kickoff 41 yards and totaled 23 yards on two punt returns against the Chargers.
