Former Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon ran a 4.52 40-yard dash in front of representatives from 21 teams at his pro day Tuesday, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Gordon held the workout in advance of Thursday's supplemental draft. He spent last season out of football after Baylor dismissed him from the team in August 2011. Gordon then transferred to Utah but had to leave the school for the supplemental draft for financial reasons.

Is Baylor WR Josh Gordon a good fit with the Cowboys? Gordon has been opening eyes as the supplemental draft approaches. Would you take a chance on him?

Gordon left Baylor after being suspended for violating an unspecified team rule. The Houston native said the suspension was for a failed drug test.

"It (suspension at Baylor) was due to a failed marijuana test," Gordon told the Chronicle after working out at the Houston Texans' facility Tuesday. "It was against school policy, of course, and I was (suspended) in the summer. I've definitely put that part of my life behind me. I don't plan to ever go back there. It was a difficult time, but I learned from it, and I've moved on."

Gordon told the Chronicle that he has tried to be as honest as possible with scouts and said he was "appreciative" of Tuesday's large turnout that featured six teams with multiple representatives.

"I was appreciative of so many coming to watch me," the 6-foot-3, 225-pound Gordon told the Chronicle. "Sure, it was a lot of pressure with so many eyes on you, but it wasn't anything I couldn't handle.

"Having a chance to play in the NFL is a dream come true for me and my family. I appreciate having this opportunity. If I'm not drafted, I'll be happy to get a chance as a free agent."

One NFL scout told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Monday that Gordon could go as high as the second round, and he is considered a rare talent as far as supplemental drafts go.
