Browns Only NFL Team To Dip Into Supplemental Draft

The Cleveland Browns took a page from the Baltimore Ravens and were the only NFL team to take a chance on a former college player in the recent NFL Supplemental Draft. The Browns selected Baylor WR Josh Gordon in the second round of the Supplemental Draft, meaning they will give up a second round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft next April.

Gordon was the second option in college from Heisman Trophy winner and second overall pick of the Washington Redskins, QB Robert Griffin III. The Browns were desperate for play-makers on offense and Gordon was one of the players thought tobe worthy of a Supplemental Draft pick from one of the NFL's teams.

The Baltimore Ravens will face the Browns twice next season and despite sweeping them as well as the entire AFC North in 2011, will obviously be facing improved teams across the board based off of the 2012 NFL Drafts from both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals, and now perhaps even the Cleveland Browns.
