The Browns today added depth to their wide out core, as the team today gave up a second-round pick, drafting Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon in the 2012 supplemental draft.
Gordon was taken in the second round, meaning they will give up a second-round pick in 2013.
The 6-3, 224 pound Gordon could add a spark right away to the Browns, who were looking early at taking a WR in the 2012 NFL Draft.
The last time a player was selected as high as the second round in the supplemental draft came in 2003 when the Texans selected former Georgia Tech running back Tony Hollings. No one player has been selected in the first round since former Duke quarterback Dave Brown in 1992.
Gordon was also looked at by a couple other teams, including the Vikings. Now he will be called upon to step up and help the Browns WR core in 2012 take a huge step forward.
