Eagles Send Scout To Watch Baylor WR Josh Gordon


Yesterday, Adam Schefter of ESPN said that he thought the Eagles would be interested in Baylor WR Josh Gordon in this Thursday's Supplemental Draft.

They confirmed that interest today by sending a scout to watch him workout.

Now they could just be doing their homework by sending a scout, but it does at least show they would entertain the possibility of using a pick on getting the tall wideout. Adam Caplan of SiriusXM is reporting that 21 teams showed up to watch Gordon workout.

Gordon ran a 4.52 40 today, which is slightly slower than most expected. By comparison, the 4.52 time is right on pace with what Riley Cooper (4.53) and Marvin McNutt (4.54) ran. It has been reported by Tony Pauline of DraftInsider.com, however, that Gordon may have hurt his quad during the run- which would have slowed him down.

Pauline also reported that he had several scouts tell him that they saw him as a potential 1st or 2nd round pick following his 2010 season.

It looks like if the Eagles want a real chance at getting Gordon, they would have to offer at least a 3rd round pick, if not a 2nd.

We'll all find out this Thursday when the Supplemental Draft takes place.
