Former Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon worked out for several NFL teams Tuesday during his pro day in Houston and the Cowboys were one of them. In preparation for Thursday's NFL Supplemental Draft, Gordon ran a 4.52-second 40-yard dash, according to Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio. Caplan reported that 21 teams watched Gordon turn in a 36-inch vertical leap and 10-foot-1 broad jump. However, the 6-foot-3, 224-pounder suffered a minor setback as he pulled his left quadriceps while running the 40-yard dash. But he was able to finish all routes in the workouts and didn't drop a pass, according to Caplan. The Cowboys could be interested in adding Gordon if the price is right, considering their open competition at the No. 3 receiver position. Looking for a comparison to see where Gordon could've been drafted in April? Here's one from Tony Grossi, a Cleveland Browns analyst from ESPNCleveland.com. "Josh Gordon's pro day workout numbers bear a striking resemblance to another receiver taken in the third round of the regular NFL draft," Grossi tweeted. "Gordon timed 4.52 in the 40, had a vertical jump of 36 in., a broad jump of 10 ft., 1 in., and had 13 reps in the bench press. At the NFL combine, DeVier Posey timed 4.50, had a VJ of 36.5, a BJ of 10-2, and 14 reps in the bench. "Posey was a 3rd round pick of Houston, 68th overall. One difference: Gordon measured 6-3 18 and 224 pounds. Posey is 6-1 34 and 211." Follow Jon Machota on Twitter: @jonmachota
