2012 NFL Supplemental Draft: Gordon Pleasantly "Shocked" To Be Second-Round Draft Pick

A talented player with question marks like former Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon, turns the NFL Supplemental Draft into a big game of chicken among teams looking to add talent with the lowest possible draft pick. But the Cleveland Browns weren't playing around with Gordon, instead jumping at the chance to take the 6'4" wide out in the second round of the supplemental draft.

Gordon isn't one to lack for confidence, but even he was surprised when the Browns snapped him up early in the second round. According to Pro Football Talk, Gordon expressed his "shock" during a radio interview in this hometown of Houston.

"I was more than shocked for sure," Gordon told FOX 26 Sports in Houston after being picked in the second round of the 2012 supplemental draft. "I definitely didn't think that high, but I'm thankful for the opportunity. . . . I'm definitely in shock. It still probably hasn't hit me yet."

It will hit Gordon later in July when he tries to put his checkered past behind him for good and gets to work with the Browns in training camp.
