Kansas City Chiefs WR Jonathan Baldwin was selected with the 26th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. Baldwin dropped 8-10 pounds before training camp in an effort to keep up in the Chiefs' up-tempo offense. He's trying to win the No. 2 receiver role opposite Dwayne Bowe and the team feels he’s making progress, but he still is dropping too many balls. However, coming into camp almost 10 pounds lighter showed the team his dedication to becoming a starter. “In this offense, you’re getting a lot of reps,” Baldwin said, via Terez A. Paylor. “It’s a way faster pace than it has been in the past, so you have to be in tip-top shape to do all the things and get all the reps you’re going to be getting in training camp.” “I think they were shocked that I came in as light as I was,” Baldwin said. “I ran the conditioning test about every other day when I was training. That was one thing that I wanted to be able to show, that I was in great shape.” “Dwayne is a great receiver,” Baldwin said. “If people are going to double him and do things like that, I want to be dependable from the standpoint of (proving) I can make plays and help him out.”
