July 11, 2012
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports Redskins QB Robert Griffin III has been “pushing the Redskins brass hard” to take Baylor WR Josh Gordon in tomorrows supplemental draft.
There have been a number of team’s interested in drafting Gordon which includes: the Browns, Panthers, Colts, Cowboys, Vikings, Eagles, and Rams.
Albert Breer of the NFL Network spoke to a few evaluators regarding Gordon and was told that he’s being “overhyped.”
Baylor WR Josh Gordon was measured at 6-foot-3, 224 pounds. He also posted an unofficial time of 4.52 seconds in the 40-yard dash during his Pro Day this morning.
The Sideline View’s Adam Caplan sees the Cleveland Browns as the most likely team to draft Baylor WR Josh Gordon.
Caplan also reports that the Philadelphia Eagles will be in attendance for Gordon’s Pro Day on Tuesday.
Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post suggests that the Miami Dolphins could use their additional third-round pick that they received from the Bears in return for Brandon Marshall to take Gordan.
As of now, the Browns, Panthers, Colts, Cowboys, Vikings, Eagles, Redskins and Rams look like the most likely suitors for Gordan.
Matt Mosley of ESPN Dallas reports the Cowboys have already “done their homework” on Baylor WR Josh Gordon and will send a representative to his Pro Day on Tuesday.
The Cowboys have been tossed out as a team that could draft Gordon in either the second or third-round of the upcoming Supplemental Draft.
ESPN’s Jamie Walker confirms that the Buffalo Bills will be one of the team’s in attendance for Josh Gordon’s pro day on Tuesdayin Houston.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter mentioned that there’s a chance that Baylor WR Josh Gordon could be taken as early as the second round of the upcoming Supplemental Draft, which will take place on Thursday.
According to Evan Silva of Pro Football Talk, a source mentioned that at least one NFC team has a third-round grade on Baylor WR WR Josh Gordon, who will be available in next weeks Supplemental Draft.
In fact, the source added that there were people at Baylor that saw Gordon as a better prospect than Kendall Wright, who was taken in the first-round of this year’s draft by the Tennessee Titans.
Gordon appears to be a pretty serious prospect that could go as early as the second-round. He possesses both good size and overall speed, so I’m sure team’s that could use some additional talent at the receiver position will strongly consider placing a middle-round bid on him.
