I’m not even a little surprised that the Rams didn’t get former Baylor WR Josh Gordon in Thursday’s Supplemental Draft, but I’m pretty shocked that Gordon went as high as he did. The Cleveland Browns selected Gordon with the second pick in the second round, meaning they will surrender their second-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Usually, the Supplemental Draft might have a player who generates some buzz and rumors start to fly that he will go in the first few rounds. Then, the guy usually falls to somewhere in the middle rounds. Well, that wasn’t the case ths time. I didn’t really think Gordon would go in the second, and apparently he was just as surprised. “I was more than shocked for sure. I definitely didn’t think that high, but I’m thankful for the opportunity. I’m definitely in shock. It still probably hasn’t hit me yet.”
I don’t know how good Gordon will be, but the expectations are certainly much higher now that he’s a second-round pick. It would have been nice to add him to the mix here in St. Louis, but that’s a pretty big gamble. We have enough question mars here as it is.
