The Seahawks have some big bucks wrapped up their wide receivers, but their most productive receiver signed with them for a $17,500 signing bonus. Undrafted rookie free agent Doug Baldwin is leading the team in catches and yards, and he has been the third most productive rookie receiver in the league, behind only first round picks Julio Jones and A.J. Green. Baldwin was considered small and slow by many teams, but scouts overlooked his long arms, jumping ability, suddenness and ability to separate. Even though Baldwin was undrafted, many teams were interested in signing him after the draft. In fact, Jim Harbaugh, who coached Baldwin at Stanford, wanted him on the 49ers, but Baldwin chose to sign with the rival Seahawks over the 49ers in part because the 49ers had drafted a receiver, Ron Johnson, in the sixth round, and Baldwin thought he would have a better chance in Seattle.
