Jonathan Baldwin benefits from work with Revis, Fitzgerald


Former Pittsburgh wide receiver Jonathan Baldwin is getting ready for the NFL draft by working with two former Pittsburgh players who are among the best in the business, Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis and Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

Baldwin said today on ProFootballTalk Live that Revis has given him some insight into what makes life difficult for an NFL cornerback.

“He’ll tell me, ‘I have a hard time with this,'” Baldwin said. “If you’re going over it with someone like Darrelle Revis and he tells you something like that, you want to learn those things he doesn’t like so you can incorporate it into your game so you can be a better receiver.”

Fitzgerald, meanwhile, is trying to show Baldwin some of the finer points of playing receiver in the NFL.

“When you’re working with someone like Larry Fitzgerald, I know he’s been successful in the NFL so I try to incorporate those things,” Baldwin said. “Running good routes, being fluid coming out of my breaks, things like that.”

  1. I hope Revis and Fitzgerald are explaining to him that if he’s going to have a productive NFL career, it’ll have to be as a dependable and consistent posession receiver, not a home run hitter. If he doesn’t get that, he’ll just be Roy Williams.

  2. Look like a slow night……


    What swears can be used on PFT and still be published?

    How do you re-direct spell the swears to get them in….a$& etc…

    What causes some posts not to be published? Swears, personal attacks, too many posts on one story, etc?

  3. This kid has to get tougher skin. He was criticized , and really took it personally. At least, he’s working with former Panthers , to get his game right. He’s looking at 3-4th round…not nearly as explosive after the catch as Fitz was…very few receivers with his size coming out, so he has a good chance to stand out if he can get better out of his breaks…

  4. I think Baldwin is the younger version of boldin. Strong physical
    Receiver who is also great at yard after catch. Baldwin is a very
    Talented receiver and I personall think he is slightly ahead of torii
    Smith and Titus young. Baldwin also has the size and jumping abilty to catch end zone pass with no issues and he proved that during his
    College career. I rank these wr like this…
    1. Aj Green
    2. Julio jones
    3. Jon Baldwin
    4. Titus young
    5. Torii smith
    6. Leonard hankerson
    7. Randall Cobb

  5. Baldwin’s biggest problem in 2010 was the early inconsistency of new starting QB Sunseri. This led to him not finishing plays and an attitude problem. He’ll be a great NFL receiver if he grows up and gets a little humilty.
