2012 NFL Supplemental Draft: Chiefs Among Teams Scoping Out Josh Gordon

As the best overall prospect in the 2012 NFL Supplemental Draft, it's not surprising to hear that there were 21 total teams in attendance at the former Baylor wide receiver's Pro Day workout on Tuesday. In fact, it's more of a shocker that there were still that many teams not interested in sending a single front office worker to check him out.

The Kansas City Chiefs were one of the teams doing their homework as Adam Caplan listed off a number of the franchises who sent representatives to check on Gordon's draft status:

Partial list of teams in attendance for Josh Gordon's workout today: #Browns, #Eagles, #Cowboys, #Bears, #Seahawks, #Chiefs, #Colts, #49ers, #Redskins, #Bills, #Texans, #Patriots, #Vikings, #Saints. Need confirmations on others. Teams not in attendance can request tape.

The Chiefs could use help at receiver if they do not plan on signing Dwayne Bowe for the long-term. If he walks after this year, the team will still have Jon Baldwin and Steve Breaston among others at receiver, but Gordon could provide the team the sort of developmental prospect at the position they could use to study behind Bowe for a season.
