Yesterday we profiled former Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon, who has drawn some serious interest from a number of teams, including your Dallas Cowboys, in the weeks leading up to this Thursday’s Supplemental Draft.
Since then and now, Gordon held his Pro Day in Houston, hurt his quad while running the 40-yard dash and drawn comparisons to another receiver, who was drafted in the third round of this April’s draft.
Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reported, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News, that 21 teams were present at the workout, where Gordon recorded a 36-inch vertical, a 10-foot-1 broad jump and a 4.52 second 40, during which he pulled his left quadriceps.
Gordon’s performance reminded one writer, Tony Grossi of ESPNCleveland.com, of DeVier Posey--the former Ohio State receiver who was drafted 68th overall by the Houston Texans. However, Grossi points out that Gordon is substantially bigger than Posey.
“Posey was a 3rd round pick of Houston, 68th overall,” Grossi tweeted on Tuesday. “One difference: Gordon measured 6-3 1/8 and 224 pounds. Posey is 6-1 3/4 and 211.”
