There were only eight prospects in all competing for slots in the 2012 NFL Supplemental Draft and, as expected, Josh Gordon was the first one off of the board. The former Baylor wide receiver had the size and speed that makes scouts' blood boil, and it was enough to make him the choice of the Cleveland Browns in the second round.
Gordon was kicked off of the Bears football team for a charge of marijuana possession. He was unable to play for the entire 2011 college football season after transferring to the Utah Utes. However, he apparently decided that going straight to the NFL was the better move rather than playing in 2012 with a new team in a new system. He's undoubtedly raw, but seeing as how impact wide receivers are hard to find, Gordon was going to land with someone early enough.
The Browns brought Gordon in for a visit and will now lose their second round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Gordon caught 43 passes for Baylor in 2010 for 721 yards and 7 touchdowns.
