Browns take WR Gordon early

Posted by Chris Brown on July 12, 2012 – 12:37 pm

Former Baylor WR Josh Gordon was the most highly touted prospect in today’s (Thursday) NFL Supplemental draft, and Cleveland didn’t wait long to take him.

The order in which the picks stood in this year’s Supplemental Draft at the top were as follows Buffalo, Cleveland, Tampa Bay, Miami. Cleveland chose to use a second-round pick on Gordon, a pick they have now forfeited in the 2013 NFL draft. The Browns need receiver help, but Gordon though physical gifted is raw and might not be able to contribute much this season.

The Browns likely saw parting with a two as palatable since they have a pair of third-round picks next spring. Gordon was forecast as a 3rd-5th round selection.
