Analysis

Interesting player born in Rome, Italy who has been a regular contributor to the Pitt defense since stepping foot on campus. Baldonado has a good frame that teams should love, but he could benefit from adding a bit more. He struggles at times to assert himself in the run game, which is where adding weight may help him. As a pass rusher, Baldonado has a nice array of tools at his disposal. He has the potential to be a decent option at the next level as a depth piece on an NFL defensive line. Personally, I think it would be best if he bulked up in some capacity in order to play more inside, rather than out wide.
