Scouting the '13 supplemental draft
July, 10, 2013

Using a pick that early in the supplemental draft is risky because the eligible players frequently come with some kind of baggage. Gordon was no exception. Baylor dismissed him in 2011 and in June, the NFL suspended him for the first two games of the 2013 season for violating its substance abuse policy. It remains to be seen whether the two-game suspension is the last bump in the road for Gordon or if poor off-the-field decision-making will continue to be an issue.
