Didn't play last year after being suspended indefinitely. Reportedly has 4.3 speed and is listed at 6'3 220. Could definitely be some interest there.

I could see the Dolphins or the Jets giving him a shot. Dude has the measurables.

We'll see what off the field concerns crop up though, that will be the determining factor of his stock.

I don't see any harm on giving him a shot 4th or later. His time out of actual games, though, scares me a bit.

I like the Texans, Jets, or Seahawks to make a play. Browns would be smart to but I have little faith in their FO doing anything right.

Went to BU, saw him play. He could be worth a shot. Kind of an egomaniac though. 5th round?

I think he'll be lucky to go 6th-7th

Was just thinking...It would have been very crazy if a guy with those tools had been there last year with RGIII and Kendall Wright.

Yea that would have been crazy. I feel like it would have been incredible for RG3 while in school but still keep him at #2 and would hurt Wright's stock. Still would have been fun to watch.

Could he really be any worse than Tiquan Underwood?

I'd say NE should give him a chance and then magically "IR" him. 7th rounders are nothing.

Not draftable IMO. Worth working out, but that is about all.

Russ Lande gives him a 2nd round grade and even goes as far as to say that his 2010 tape is better than Wright's 2011 tape. Hm.

I am surprised at the overhyping, lol. Can't say that I have seen it, but then again, I only have a couple games.

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Josh Gordon is expected to be timed in the 40-yard dash in the 4.4s or better. He could go as high as 2nd round.

I hope Seattle makes a play for him.

id be surprised if he went in the second, id say 4th at best...not that he isnt worth a second, he might be but teams are really stingy in the supplemental. hell i wouldnt mind the steelers using a 4th on him as wallace insurance

Tough to see somebody give up a 2nd rounder with the off the field stuff and so long being out of football, who knows what kind of shape he is in now. Though he does make sense for a team like Miami & Cleveland. Why not approach for a 3rd rounder..

definitely worth a shot with a 3rd rounder imo. would be really happy if the skins were able to get him with a 3rd.

If Tony Hollings can fetch a second rounder, so can this guy.

Do the skins have any picks after the RG3 trade? :njx:

He's very Tommy Streeter-like. Similar type player where the production never really showed up, but the talent is there. If Streeter went in the 5th/6th i dont see what really separates him from Streeter...

Watch Dallas take him.

We need immediate help, and in the slot more then likely. Even if we kick Austin down to slot which he has played a ton of in the past, we'd need an outside guy right away. Gordon doesn't seem like the safest bet to give production to whoever picks him up this year. He's already missed OTA's and mini camps, has a few seasons out of football, and 1 small injury that holds him out of TC time puts him WAY behind the curve.


I'd be surprised if we spent a pick that high knowing it wasn't for immediate help, but who knows. I hope not.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/07/10/supplemental-prospect-gordon-runs-4-52-forty-at-pro-day/

Officially:

6'3 224
4.52 40

Not quite the 4.3 that was claimed but not bad for a guy that size.

And yet I was still disappointed when I saw this. Having big freaks at receiver just makes me giddy. Pretty good workout numbers besides the forty, though.

I've been hearing this all over the place, and I'm sorry but it's just starting to really bug me. So I guess for big WR's unless you run like Calvin Johnson your either average or a disappointment. A low 4.5 is a very fast time for a guy 6'4 and approaching 230 pounds that is in prime football shape and has been training for 2 years, let alone 1 who hasn't played organized football in years and has had to rely on himself to workout.



I don't care what he was rumored to run. 4.5 is plenty fast for a WR his size, all that means is he's not a world class sprinter or a once in a decade type of prospect. People that size don't typically run 4.3 40's, it's not a disappointment when it doesn't happen.


I know we all want the freakish prospect to come along to go nuts over, but he's got some great measurables and is a great athlete. I'm not understanding the reaction to his 40 time by most people what so ever though.

Shane P. Hallam

No one said he isn't fast, but to go in the 2nd-3rd round, he needed to be 4.4-4.45.

Well that may ultimately be true, but I'd never call a 40 time of a 4.52 disappointing for a guy his size. Especially taking the situations into consideration.

That is not true at all. 4.52 is more than fine. If someone was thinking 2nd-3rd they are still thinking 2nd-3rd after that time. It's ridiculous to think that it will affect him negatively in any way.

Let's not forget how much training and practice goes into people training for the combine BTW. If he declared for financial reasons, I highly doubt he had someone coaching him up for this.

He would. An agent would take the bet for free and get paid later.
