BIOGRAPHY: Junior-college transfer who totaled career-high numbers of 58/18.5/8.5 as a senior. Moved into the starting lineup his first year at MSU.
POSITIVES: Hard-charging defender who makes a lot of plays in the opponent's backfield. Plays with good pad level and shows speed off the edge or pursuing from the back side. Diagnoses the action, immediately locates the ball, and works hard to make plays. Slides off blocks laterally, immediately changes his angle of attack, and redirects to the ball-carrier. Displays an array of moves working to get off blocks.
NEGATIVES: Small and slow shedding blocks once engaged. Struggles against larger opponents.
ANALYSIS: Baldwin is a prospect flying under the radar screen at the present time. He lacks the size to be an every-down player in the NFL, yet he has enough talent to get consideration as a pass-rush specialist.
