Browns Select WR Josh Gordon In The Supplemental Draft

All off-season long we kept hearing that the Browns didn't do enough to address the WR position.

Heckert must be listening, because he went after it in a big way today. The Cleveland Browns used a 2nd round pick on selecting Baylor's WR Josh Gordon. Gordon was universally praised as the best talent in this season's supplemental draft, and many analysts pegged him as a second round talent.

It's easy to see why, listed at 6-3, 224lbs, he is a big target: something that "west coast" offenses need. Pairing him with Greg Little, the Browns now have two guys on the outside that will be match-up problems for other teams. Of course, Gordon is still very raw, only seeing major playing time in one season (2010).

Gordon does have his fair share of off-the-field issues, as he was kicked off the Baylor team for an arrest, and tested positive one other time for marijuana.

Sometimes teams need to gamble, and that is what the Browns did. If Gordon can stay on the right path, and focus his talents on the field, the Browns may have just filled a huge hole.
