2012 NFL Supplemental Draft: Josh Gordon The Risky Prize On Thursday's Slate

The 2012 NFL Supplemental Draft is somewhat less glamorous than this.

The 2012 NFL Supplemental Draft features Josh Gordon, and that's about it.

The 2012 NFL Supplemental Draft isn't really a draft, and many of the players who are chosen in it don't end up in the NFL, but it is supplemental, so it has that going for it. It also has Josh Gordon, the Baylor wide receiver who found himself on the wrong side of a drug suspension.

He's expected to go in the middle rounds of the supplemental draft--that is, someone's expected to bid a middle-round draft pick in 2013 on him, which seems about right.

As with most supplemental picks, a team that picks Gordon will be wagering their, say, fourth rounder on a chance to get, say, a second rounder. The St. Louis Rams are in tier one, though with Brian Quick and Chris Givens already to sort through they're unlikely to make a bid. But Gordon's size and speed are going to make some poor team bite, no matter how sketchy the situation that got him into the supplemental draft might be; that's the lure of it.
