Following in Mike Williams' 2010 footsteps, undrafted rookie Doug Baldwin is the Seahawks' second straight leading receiver to unexpectedly burst out of the woodwork. Baldwin added a new dimension to a stellar rookie campaign when he was named the NFC's Special Team Player of the Week after making three monster special-teams plays in the first five minutes of Seattle's Monday-night win vs. the Rams. "Not bad, since he usually doesn't get involved in special teams," said one daily team observer of Baldwin, who also had 93 yards receiving and a TD catch. A play-making force from the moment he stepped on the practice field, Baldwin is considered a clone of ex-Seahawk Bobby Engram, a waiver-wire pickup who excelled in the slot in his time in Seattle. "That's the comparison," the observer said. "He has that great knack for finding openings in zone coverage and shaking his man."
