Overlooking Doug Baldwin Would be a Mistake

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - SEPTEMBER 11: Doug Baldwin #15 of the Seattle Seahawks runs away from the 49ers defense for a 55 yard touchdown catch and run in the fourth quarter of an NFL football game at Candlestick Park on September 11, 2011 in San Francisco, California.

  While the football world loves to watch, and talk about Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice, you may want to spend some time studying their #2 WR - Doug Baldwin.

  Last year, Baldwin put together a solid season in only 13 games. His 58 receptions for 857 yards and 9 touchdown performance should have been enough to garner the concerns of any opposing defensive secondary. Yet when the Seattle offense breaks their huddle, all eyes turn to Sidney Rice. That's just fine with Baldwin, who in his 7 appearances this season has quietly amassed 25 catches for 403 yards and 2 TDs.

  Baldwin is a proto-typical #2 wide receiver, playing well in the seem, short post and the occasional field stretching patterns. His 14.7 yard average per catch makes him the ideal weapon to move the chains for Seattle in this Sunday's contest against the Rams. The secondary of the Rams needs to keep an eye on this talented receiver. He's been cleared to play after a minor concussion in last week's Ravens game, so don't get so sold on watching Rice that Doug Baldwin comes in and seizes the day!
