Browns Grab Baylor WR Josh Gordon in Second Round of Supplemental Draft

The Browns today added depth to their wide out core, as the team today gave up a second-round pick, drafting Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon in the 2012 supplemental draft.

Gordon was taken in the second round, meaning they will give up a second-round pick in 2013.

The 6-3, 224 pound Gordon could add a spark right away to the Browns, who were looking early at taking a WR in the 2012 NFL Draft.

The last time a player was selected as high as the second round in the supplemental draft came in 2003 when the Texans selected former Georgia Tech running back Tony Hollings. No one player has been selected in the first round since former Duke quarterback Dave Brown in 1992.

Gordon was also looked at by a couple other teams, including the Vikings. Now he will be called upon to step up and help the Browns WR core in 2012 take a huge step forward.

    They could not go into the season with what they had at WR. This is a positive move in the right direction!

    Second round pick . . .? For the past couple of drafts, we have put starters on the field with second round picks. Either this is going to be an awesome pick up or a major mistake, but it does give 2 receivers added this year — and one of them, from everything I have read, a legitimate first round candidate. So, OK, if we can get a first round guy with a second round pick — and in an area of need to boot, then I’m in . . .

    The young man seems to have all the physical tools to be a great receiver, the big question is his maturity. Do we all do things we probably should not have yes, the question is do we learn from those mistakes. The Browns are taking a chance, TH said the young man said all the things that he wanted to hear. A quick and simple way to make sure it was not lip service, build some things into his contract.

    What you may ask, such things such as “if you pop positive for drugs, you forfit this or get paid only this much” or “if you get aressted for this you forfit this and or pay the team this”. On the same note, they should also have in place something to the effect of “since you have kept yourself out of trouble and drug free you get this for a bonus”.

    This way Gordon who says he is on the straight and narrow can back up his words and put his money where his mouth is, it also gives the Browns some protection and also reward the young man for staying true to his words.
