The Browns surprised almost everyone by giving up their 2nd round pick in next April’s draft to select former Baylor WR Josh Gordon. The surprise wasn’t that Gordon was taken, but that the Browns gave up such a high pick. Many draft pundits expected a 3rd round pick would be the absolute highest round pick that anyone would use on him, while some suggested a 4th or 5th was more appropriate.
That isn’t to say that Gordon isn’t a 2nd round talent. He is. (Ignore the occasional Randy Moss comparison you might see. Those are ridiculous) The problem is that he comes with a lot of baggage, like recent drug use baggage.
No other player was taken in the supplemental draft. I really expected a 7th round selection of TCU RB Ed Wesley, but I guess no team liked him enough to take a chance that he wouldn’t be there to be signed after the draft.
