Mayock on Baldwin: "Reputation As A Diva"

I've been drawn to discussing wide receiver draft prospects this week, and one of them has been mentioned as a possible selection for the Green Bay Packers at No. 32 overall: Pittsburgh WR Jon Baldwin. From Mike Mayock's chat (via PFT) is the bad word about Baldwin's reputation:

Baldwin is one of the bigger questions in this year's draft. He has a well-earned reputation as a diva. And publicly trashed his starting QB at Pitt.

It's safe to say that he doesn't sound like a good fit in the locker room, but the Packers don't avoid players with some question marks. TE Andrew Quarless was almost kicked off the Penn State team, and NT B.J. Raji was academically ineligible and had rumors of marijuana use, but they looked into the background of both players and have, so far, done well with each player. 

I don't expect Baldwin will be high on their draft board if that reputation is accurate, but if he is drafted, I would expect they've dispelled that myth amongst themselves.
