The Cleveland Browns are in search of playmakers all over the field so risking a 2nd round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft was no big thing to them.
According to nfl.com, the Browns selected the 6-foot-3 224 pound Gordon with a second round pick in the supplemental draft.
Rules of the supplemental draft state that the Browns will forfeit that pick in the regular draft held in April.
Gordon hasn’t played since 2010 when he caught 42 passes for 714 yards and seven touchdowns at Baylor.
The young wide-out was dismissed from Baylor in 2011 for a bevy of different issues and transferred to Utah.
Gordon wasn’t eligible to play but impressed many in practices during the season.
The Browns have already started a makeover with the drafting of quarterback Brandon Weeden and running back Trent Richardson.
Second round picks are valuable so it will be a waste if Gordon doesn’t pan out.
Lets hope the hype is right.
