Possible Cowboys target Gordon injures quad
JUL 10, 2012 9:14p ET
In preparation for Thursday's NFL Supplemental Draft, Gordon ran a 4.52-second 40-yard dash, according to Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio.
Caplan reported that 21 teams watched Gordon turn in a 36-inch vertical leap and 10-foot-1 broad jump.
However, the 6-foot-3, 224-pounder suffered a minor setback as he pulled his left quadriceps while running the 40-yard dash. But he was able to finish all routes in the workouts and didn't drop a pass, according to Caplan.
The Cowboys could be interested in adding Gordon if the price is right, considering their open competition at the No. 3 receiver position.
Looking for a comparison to see where Gordon could've been drafted in April? Here's one from Tony Grossi, a Cleveland Browns analyst from ESPNCleveland.com.
"Josh Gordon's pro day workout numbers bear a striking resemblance to another receiver taken in the third round of the regular NFL draft," Grossi tweeted. "Gordon timed 4.52 in the 40, had a vertical jump of 36 in., a broad jump of 10 ft., 1 in., and had 13 reps in the bench press. At the NFL combine, DeVier Posey timed 4.50, had a VJ of 36.5, a BJ of 10′-2″, and 14 reps in the bench.
"Posey was a 3rd round pick of Houston, 68th overall. One difference: Gordon measured 6-3 1/8 and 224 pounds. Posey is 6-1 3/4 and 211."
