March and April are typically times of hope for NFL teams. Sometimes, however, a team goes out and picks that one player that you just can’t stand.
These “nightmare picks” can be caused by a number of reasons. Maybe you don’t like the guy’s off-field demeanor, don’t believe in his on-field skills, or maybe his position is one that you don’t consider a need for your team.
There has to be a guy out there that you don’t want to see in a Patriots uniform in 2011. Who is your “nightmare pick” in the 2011 NFL Draft?
As always, we’ll start things out…
Jonathan Baldwin (WR, Pittsburgh)
Baldwin has all the physical tools and build that you’d want for a wide receiver. Unfortunately, he hasn’t shown that he has the skill to fully actualize his potential.
He somehow fails to gain separation from slower corners, even though he has excellent speed.
He doesn’t always fight well with corners, which can kill a QB’s confidence in throwing jump balls in his direction. He does a good job of high-pointing the ball, but a physical corner can really knock him off his game.
Baldwin might become a star receiver in the NFL, but his bust-o-meter is off the charts.
