    We had a brief flirtation this week with the idea that ultra-athletic former Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon could come into the fold by way of the supplemental draft and make the competition for the vacant no. 3 receiver spot a lot more interesting than it already is. But alas, it wasn’t meant to be.

    The Cowboys watched the supplemental draft pass them by on Thursday without making a pick, and saw Gordon go to the Cleveland Browns early in the second round.

    Of course, this is nothing to regret if you’re a Dallas fan. Not only were the Cowboys not alone in not taking a player, but Gordon was the only player taken--and where he was selected, Dallas would have had to take the former Baylor star in the first round, meaning they would have had to give up a first round pick in 2013.

    As it happened, it’ll be the Browns giving up a pick, a second rounder next year.
