Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports that 21 teams showed up and saw Gordon run a 4.52-second 40-yard dash. While that isn't quite as fast as some pre-draft buzz indicated, it's plenty quick for a 6-foot-3, 224-pound athlete.
Caplan also reported that Gordon had a 36-inch vertical leap and 10-foot-1 broad jump, which are very good numbers.
In the traditional draft process, the Pro Day is not the end-all, be all. It's a little more important for Gordon considering that teams haven't seen him play in 2010. This 40-yard time doesn't figure to increase the early round hype surrounding Gordon, but we doubt that it will hurt his buzz.
At this point, conventional wisdom has Gordon going in the third round.
UPDATE: Caplan later reported that Gordon pulled his left quadriceps during his workout.
Josh Gordon pulled his left quadriceps, but was able to finish all routes etc during workout. Didn't drop a pass.

UPDATE II: Gordon spoke to reporters after the workout, and he acknowledged that he is not taking the most idealized path to the pros.
"The supplemental draft isn't the way you want to go into the NFL when you're growing up, but considering my circumstances, I've got to attack it with a full head of steam and do the best I can," he said, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Gordon went on to explain his departure from Baylor, which resulted from a failed marijuana test.
"Everything I thought I had, everything in front of me, just went down the drain. I didn't want to stop chasing my dream, so I transferred, sat out the season and worked as hard as I could to start from scratch."
