Josh Gordon goes well before Cowboys' comfort zone
That meant that the price for former Baylor receiver Josh Gordon in the supplemental draft was far too steep for the Cowboys. He went to the Cleveland Browns in the second round, meaning that the Cowboys would have had to bid their 2013 first-round pick to get Gordon.
That’d be a foolish investment for a team that believes it has its starting receiver tandem set for the next few years at least with Miles Austin and Dez Bryant.
The 6-foot-3, 224-pound Gordon could have been a good investment for the Cowboys with a mid-round pick, but he was long gone by that point in the blind bidding process. As it is, the Cowboys will go to camp with an unproven army of receivers competing to replace Laurent Robinson as the third receiver.
