Jason La Canfora was the first to report that the Cleveland Browns have selected Baylor WR Josh Gordan in the second-round of the supplemental draft.
There was talk that he could drop to the fourth or fifth round today, but the Browns obviously felt that they needed some additional help at the receiver position, which is really hard to argue with.
CBS Sports’ Rob Rang tweets that WR Josh Gordon could end up being taken as late as the 4th or 5th round in today’s supplemental draft. He says that Gordon has been overhyped a bit, and scouts don’t trust him.
“Consensus with Gordon seems to be that he’s been overhyped a bit”. Rangs tweets, “Scouts acknowledge upside but don’t trust him. Most feel he’ll go in 4-5.”
The problem with Gordon is that he only has one solid year of tape as a 19-year-old sophomore. He started only 5 games last season, and in his final four regular season games against conference rivals, he only caught 10 passes for a total of 100 yards.
The Supplemental draft will be held at 1 pm Eastern time, and everything is done through email by NFL and its 32 teams.
