Baylor/Utah WR Josh Gordon reportedly won’t get past 3rd round in supplemental draft, unnamed NFC East team poised to pounce

Report per Rotoworld’s Evan Silva:

I wrote about this earlier this week, and had the Cowboys pegged as a team that should be interested.

  1. Wow, marvelous blog layout! How lengthy have you been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The entire look of your site is excellent, as well as the content material!

  2. I’m not sure exactly why but this web site is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

  3. Unquestionably imagine that which you stated. Your favourite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest factor to take into accout of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst other people consider worries that they plainly don’t realize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly as outlined out the entire thing without having side-effects , other people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  4. […] But the real reason I seem to care so much about this kid is that Evan Silva of Pro Football Talk reported that a source said he won’t get past the 3rd round of the supplemental draft, because there is an NFC East team that will pounce if he does. […]

  5. my guess says:

    Skins or Boys.

    I guess I’m used to the Supp draft outcomes rarely being the “best case scenario” and often being the “worst case scenario”.

    I don’t think that would be a bad for pick any NFC East team. I’d take him in the 3rd. I don’t believe he’s as bad of a risk as people are making it out to be. Physically he compares favorably to Andre Johnson. Potentially a huge steal. He’s just as much of a project as the average third round pick.

  8. Blue Eyed Devil says:

    Not the Cowboys please.

    It would be such a Jerry Jones move to throw a 3rd round pick, which if used on an offensive lineman could easily be a starter, at an underdeveloped size/speed project wide receiver who even in the best case scenario be 3rd on the depth chart.

    1. Well… I look at it this way: I think by “best case scenario, the best he can be is a 3,” you mean that the best case is that he’ll be a 3, this year, correct? WR is a position the Cowboys are going to have to address next offseason anyway, so if they really like this kid, I don’t have a problem with it. I think they’d only give up a future 3rd round pick if they thought he can become something much more than a 3rd WR down the road.

      1. Blue Eyed Devil says:

        How do you mean? Miles Austin is under contract through 2016 and Dez until 2014.

        1. Red Eyed Devil says:

          Can Miles actually stay healthy and prove 2009 wasn’t a fluke. I don’t think he’s worth the paycheck right now. If he doesn’t step up this season we’ll have to start calling him
          “Regressed by Miles Austin”.
