re: Updated: Browns Select WR Josh Gordon in 2nd Round

First of all I dont think this kid is as bad a guy as everyone seems to think. Yes, he smoked some bud in college and got caught and booted off the team. Then after he transfered to Utah who, "did their homework and thought he deserved another chance" was suspended for the year due to transefer rules not unlike what happened to LeRibeus. Im willing to bet 95% of the people on the site have smoked some weed and probably in college. Yes, I understand he had higher stakes than most of us but im not gonna condem a kid for being a kid. I also think that coming here with RG3 tellin him that he put his name on the line and to keep it clean, not to mention guys like Davis and Williams who I truely think have learned from their mistakes will mentor him with experience from past mistakes. Just sayin, I think he deserves a look.

re: Updated: Browns Select WR Josh Gordon in 2nd Round

TheSidelineView.com reports the Eagles are attending Baylor WR Josh Gordon's Tuesday Pro Day.
Gordon has drawn a big crowd, but the only teams confirmed to be in attendance are the Cowboys, Eagles, Bills and Browns. Gordon is listed at 6-foot-4, 225 pounds, but The Sideline View's Adam Caplan reports he's likely to be measured at 6-foot-3. He's expected to be timed in the 4.4s in the 40-yard dash.

Source: Adam Caplan on Twitter Jul 10 - 11:03 AM

The Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills, and Dallas Cowboys were among the teams confirmed to have attended. Obviously, there were Texans officials on hand, too. In all, 21 teams showed up.

Caplan reports that Gordon ran a 4.52 forty-yard dash after measuring in at 6-foot-3 1/8 and 224 pounds. Gordon recorded a 36-inch vertical leap with a 10-foot, 1-inch broad jump. He did 13 reps on the bench.

re: Updated: Browns Select WR Josh Gordon in 2nd Round

As for using a pick in the supplemental on him? I absolutly agree a 3rd is way too rich for my blood and was hoping to use a 5th or 6th. That being said, the supplemental draft is always overhyped and teams throw out rumors to get other teams to either reach with a higher pick than needed or cross them off their board altogether. I would not be surprised if he falls to at least the 4th. I also wonder why everyone here and elsewhere was mocking a WR to us before the draft and now we are "set"? What has changed? Moss lost wieght and is looking good? Also, if we do use a bargain pick on him this year he will get very little playing time and mostly be developing. Which in turn would put him a year ahead of any reciever we draft in 2013. Therefor speeding up the development and talent of our WR overall by 2014.

PFT says 21 teams showed up for the workout. Anyone have a clue which teams those were - did the Skins show up is what I'm really asking...

Obviously the Shanahans were there to scout Snead.

Decent plan.

Cut Rex. Promote Cousins to backup. Put Snead on PS.










Then we take the cap savings from losing Grossman to coax Randel El out of retirement to return kicks.

Hogs Haven is putting out an interview with RG3 this afternoon and Kevin, the co-editor and interviewer, hints that RG3's opinion of Gordon was less than glowing...

RG3 vouching for Gordon is interesting. Maybe he is worth a 5th...?

I've heard rumors that Hankerson isn't healing quite like he was expected to... Maybe we do draft Gordon.

re: Updated: Browns Select WR Josh Gordon in 2nd Round

I really haven't been paying much attention to any inside info the past several weeks...but I suspect a) we wouldn't spend more than a 4th on this guy and b) this is more about acting interested to get someone like say the Cowboys to drop a 2nd round pick on this guy

This is partly why i like the guy (not necessarily the guy but the situation he may cause). I think hes worth taking a 5th round chance on without much thought, and it wouldnt kill me if we put in a 4th round bid. Since we pick 6th it forces everyone in our division to pick a whole round ealier if they really want him. Hes a complete gamble, but id rather Dal or someone be forced to gamble a 3rd round pick on him than a 4th.
