Today Josh Gordon completed a pro day for NFL scouts in which 21 attended per Adam Caplan, but what did we learn today about the wide receiver product? The talk over the past couple weeks is how fast Gordon was, and how he was a 4.3 forty guy. Well today he ran a 4.52, and while that is still good for a 6'3, 200 pound man, is he still worth a second round pick? Everyone was ready to see what Josh Gordon was going to do today, but did he impress you? If you were a GM of an NFL football team, what pick would you give up for Josh Gordon?
Today, Josh Gordon ran a 4.52 forty yard dash and had a very good 36 inch vertical. Tony Pauline of Sports Illustrated is reporting that Gordon did in fact tweak a hamstring, but was still going to run passing routes. Was that a fluke, so he didn't have to run as hard as he was suppose to? I didn't believe that he was worth more than a late 4th to early 5th round selection, and although there might be a team desperately in need of a wide receiver, this is still a player who hasn't played in a game since 2010. There are several draft sites saying that he performed well in practices after his transfer to Utah, but is this kid worth it? He has had problems off the field and is entering the NFL because of financial purposes.
What worries me about Gordon, is the fact that he hasn't played an in actual game in 2 years. He has not been hit at full speed, and is not use to the speed of the game. Also remember, he has was dismissed from Baylor and sat out the last year, but obviously stayed in somewhat decent shape. I want to know if you where a GM for your team, what would you give up for him? Everyone on twitter is separated about this young wide receiver, but let's see how close we can get? What round will Josh Gordon be selected in on Thursday at the Supplemental Draft?
