Josh Gordon was expected to be picked in the upcoming Supplemental Draft when he was announced as an entrant, but his hype has risen beyond expectations. Some teams are seemingly unconcerned about his year off from football and his year-long suspension from Baylor, so much so that he might go as high as the second round.
I'll be surprised if Josh Gordon lasts past 2nd round of supplemental draft. More talent than many potential '13 #2's, plus you get him NOW.— Chad Reuter (@ChadReuter) July 9, 2012
Any team that uses a second round Supplemental Draft pick on Gordon will lose their corresponding pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Gordon is 6'3, 225 pounds and is believed to run a 40-yard dash in the 4.4 second range. He put up great stats as a sophomore before his suspension, and probably would have put up even better stats as a junior if he played the entirety of last season with Robert Griffin III.
Supplemental Draft entries rarely have this kind of hype, but given Gordon's physical attributes and production, it shouldn't be too surprising that some teams have a Round 2 grade on him.
