PITTSBURGH — Kansas City drafted former Pitt wide receiver Jon Baldwin with the No. 26 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Baltimore previously held the No. 26 pick, but passed to Kansas City, allowing the Chiefs the opportunity to draft Baldwin.

Baldwin fell right where I expected him to fall, in the final 10 picks of the first round. He falls in to a favorable situation, playing in an offense with quarterback Matt Cassel and opposite of wide receiver Dwayne Bowe.

Baldwin caught 53 balls for 822 yards and five touchdowns last season.
