Found July 13, 2012 on 60 Max Power O:
PLAYERS: Josh Gordon
TEAMS: Cleveland Browns

Former Baylor receiver Josh Gordon said “I was more than shocked for sure,” he told FOX 26 Sports in Houston after being picked in the 2nd round of the 2012 supplemental draft by the Cleveland Browns. “I definitely didn’t think that high, but I’m thankful for the opportunity. . . . I’m definitely in shock.  It still probably hasn’t hit me yet.”

Josh's agent, Jeff Nalley, thinks he could have gone even higher if he played in 2011.

“Josh, in any other circumstances, is a first-round pick,” Nalley told FOX 26 Sports. 

“We talked to so many teams, did so much leg work with so many teams and they did their homework.

“What they found out was he’s a really good guy and he’s also a tremendous player.  Every team that I talked to, they spoke to his ex-coaches.  They spoke to his teammates from Baylor and not one had anything bad to say about him.  It was good to see that come out during this process.  I’m just excited for the kid.”

Tom Heckert calls Josh Gordon “eventual starter”

Most people in the comments seem satisfied with the risk level that the Browns took today in selecting Josh Gordon with a 2013 second round pick by way of the supplemental NFL draft. Gordon, like current Browns receiver Greg Little, has had an idle year before entering the NFL. Maybe that is why when Tom Heckert spoke to the media today after the pick, he referred to Gordon as an...

Early Cleveland Browns Offensive Questions As Training Camp Approaches

It’s amazing to consider that training camp begins in just two weeks. The Browns will kick-start their 2012 season with a helmet practice from 8:45-11:15 a.m. on Saturday, July 28. In the meanwhile, it’s been a fairly exciting offseason for the Brownies, especially on the offensive side. In the past few years, defense was the focus, as the team added new talents such as Phil...

Josh Gordon’s Selection Signals Sense of Urgency in Berea

When it comes to the Urgency Alarm in Berea, Ohio, I’m admittedly torn on the visual. I like to believe that it’s a full-go, all-on sirens and lights show; bright orange and white, orbiting lights that, when shining in your rear-view mirror make your stomach fall to your ankles. The blaring of the sirens could be mistaken for an air raid or, at worst, a get-to-the shelter type...

Can Mike Holmgren Be Fair To Browns Q.B. Colt McCoy?

Mike Holmgren has said he likes Colt McCoy. Then Browns go out and draft a quarterback after the team tells McCoy he is going to be the guy and Browns head coach Pat Shurmur says he has seen enough. The question now becomes can Holmgren give McCoy a fair shot at leading the Cleveland Browns this season? Some think the Browns are still trying to trade McCoy. Others think he will be...

Browns Take Josh Gordon In Supplemental Draft The Guy was Suspended At Baylor

The Cleveland Browns are taking the chance on Josh Gordon, the guy that got suspended at Baylor for the use of pot. That’s right folks Cleveland Browns have got themselves a pot smoking wide receiver. I for one hope this helps him focus on catching the football, his eyes have got to be good from all the pot he has smoked. Gordon should give the Browns a weapon down the field, in...

Panic! Run Around In Circles!

Forrest Gump said, “Stupid is as stupid does.” If we translate that into an NFL language, we would say, “the Browns are as the Browns do.” In today’s supplemental draft, the Browns picked up Baylor WR John Gordon, who was dismissed from the program last year after failing a drug test. In his sophomore season (2010), he caught 42 balls for 714 yds and 7 TDs. Pretty good...

Browns select Josh Gordon with second rounder in supplemental draft

The Cleveland Browns didn’t leave anything to chance in bidding a second rounder to select former Baylor receiver Josh Gordon. It has been confirmed on NFL.com, so you’ll have another receiver added to Mike Holmgren’s infamous “pile” that he talks about. Tom Heckert and company must have really liked Gordon, or they were paranoid about bidding on another receiver and losing...
