On Monday, we passed along word that Gordon wouldn't make it past the third round because an NFC East team (Dallas?) was interested. NFL.com's Chad Reuter wrote later in the day he'd be surprised if Gordon lasted past the second round. All for a guy who hasn't played since 2010!
If Gordon's agent is in any way influencing the hype, he's doing a great job. NFC teams aren't the only ones interested. The Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns were two more teams expected to be at Gordon's pro day on Tuesday. The Plain Dealer writes that the Browns are "strongly considering" taking Gordon. ESPN Cleveland writes the Browns will send two representatives to Gordon's workout and view the supplemental draft as a second chance to fill their receiver need.
In Cleveland and Dallas, you have two teams that are desperate to add wideout talent now. That's a recipe for Gordon to get (over)drafted high on Thursday.
