Heeeee’s Back! Little known, Doug Baldwin, is certainly raising eyebrows once again.  Baldwin, who arrived in Seattle in 2011 as an undrafted free agent is starting the 2013 season off absolutely on fire. Success has not been a stranger to Doug, however.  If you’ll remember in his rookie year, Baldwin came into the league undrafted out of Standford and a virtual unknown to many teams, especially those on the east coast.  He was overlooked in the 2011 draft for a variety of the usual reasons. He’s too short at 5’10 to play Wide Receiver.  I’m sure Russell Wilson knows his pain here. He’s too light at 189lbs, he’s going to get beat up to easy as a result.  And he was to some extent in 2012. He’s not fast enough…. blah blah blah, the list goes on. Doug Baldwin took the league by storm in his rookie year, hauling in 51 catches, 4 TDs, and nearly 800 yards which gave him an average of over 15 yards per catch.  Not bad for a rookie who was too “whatever” and largely overlooked.
