The Dallas Cowboys have spent the off season trying to figure out who they’ll get to fill that number 3 spot on the wide receiver depth chart behind Dez Bryant and Miles Austin.
They drafted Danny Coale out of Virgina Tech, who says he plays like Wes Welker. Coale however broke a bone in his foot during OTA’s and will miss the first part of training camp. They still have Kevin Ogletree on the roster who has been nothing but a disappointment. Other wide receivers they’re considering are Dwayne Harris, Raymond Radaway, and Andre Holmes. Raymond Radaway was a favorite last year during training camp before an injury effectively ended any shot of him he being a Cowboy during the upcoming season. The Cowboys also invited Cole Beasley to their “Dallas Day” which highlights local area undrafted talent.
So wide receiver Josh Gordon from Baylor University is entering the supplemental draft on Thursday and the Cowboys could be interested. By selecting a player in the supplemental draft a team forfeits their pick in next year’s drafted of the corresponding round.
Matt Mosley, who wears two hats, as a write for Fox Sports Southwest and co-host of a Dallas area radio show on ESPN’s 103.3 FM channel, tweeted that the Cowboys had “done their homework” on the young area player. They also are expected to have representatives from the team at the Houston Texan’s facility for his pro day which is today.
Josh Gordon is big wide receiver standing 6’4″ and tipping the scales at 225 lbs. But that doesn’t prevent him from being fast with his 40 yard time supposedly being below 4.4 seconds.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter has said Gordon could go as high as the second round. The Miami Dolphins are also said to be interested in Josh Gordon.
But their are character issues that come along with Gordon. He was suspended by Baylor and transferred and didn’t play at all in 2011.
