Default Josh Gordon

The Browns were widely critized for taking Gordon with a 2nd rd supplemental pick. After seeing how much Gordon has improved and how talented he is, what do y'all think he would've gone in this yrs draft?

I would've given up a late 1st for him. (Texans)

Default Re: Josh Gordon

I am happy for him and the Browns that it worked out well for both. Our second is about what I would've given up for him though.

Sanu has also been working out pretty well quietly for the Bengals, specially in the red zone.

I had him as a 3rd rd guy, with the Texans taking him in the 2nd. Because I figured that the Texans would be picking late in the 2nd rd. I'm really happy that it looks like Josh has gotten his life together.

Default Re: Josh Gordon

I looked at him as a 4th rounder, possibly lower due to all the red flags.

So far he's able to stay clean which is good for him.

But he's not quite a number two yet in my book.

He has improved greatly, but most of all, he's been quite fortunate to be in the right place at the right time on several of his big catches (and normal catches.)
You know the type where the safety wasn't where he was supposed to be.)

One long TD pass was against a LB dropping back in Tampa 2 while Gordon ran a post route. There's just no way that you can ask a LB to run with a speed guy like Gordon.

We knew he has the size and the speed, and he had shown flashes in college, but he lacked the consistency in route running and catching the ball.

At the moment he's officially charged with 5 dropped balls.
It could have been seven, I think they are being a little lenient on scoring him.
(The other two aren't real easy to catch, but they are real difficult either.)

He caught a bunch of balls in zone.

One of the commentator (a former DB, I think) noted in one of the Brown games that a couple of young receivers (including Gordon) just doesn't give the QB much room to work with along the sideline.
This was on a play where Gordon was steered out of bound by a CB.

Overall, he remains a good prospect.
How far up the pole can be move, I don't know.
My guess is a number two.

To be a number one, you would see a bunch of double team; right now he's not seeing any.
