The wait is finally over. After much discussion leading up to the NFL’s Supplemental Draft on the potential destination for former Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon, we now have an answer. Gordon was selected by the Cleveland Browns in the second-round. Of course, this means the Browns will forfeit their second-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
It comes as no surprise that Cleveland would take a risk on the talented receiver. They are in desperate need of wide receiver depth and Gordon has the potential to be a contributor this season. He also compares favorably to many of the receivers in next years draft class.
As for the second-round pick, Cleveland continues their trend of being very aggressive this offseason.
Congrats to Gordon for being selected and best of luck with his future NFL career. He has the size, speed and raw talent to be a NFL wide receiver. He just needs to prove that he is mentally capable of staying out of trouble and putting his skills to good use. If he can do that, the Browns got themselves one heck of a receiver.
