Vikings Attend Workout For Supplemental Draft Prospect Josh Gordon

New, comments

In advance of Thursday's Supplemental Draft, the Minnesota Vikings were one of 14 teams that attended the workout of former Baylor and Utah wide receiver Josh Gordon on Tuesday morning. That figure comes from NFL.com reporter Adam Caplan.

Gordon, from all accounts, had a pretty good workout. He measured in at 6'3" and 224 pounds, and ran a 4.52-second 40-yard dash. He bench pressed 225 pounds 13 times, displayed a 36" vertical jump and a broad jump of 10'1". He then went out and looked pretty good running routes, despite reportedly injuring his quadriceps during the 40.

It's entirely possible that Gordon will be the only player taken in this year's Supplemental Draft, and a few teams have him graded as high as a third-round "bid." I think that's probably going to end up being a little rich for Minnesota's blood, as they're going to have issues at wide receiver to sort through in Training Camp the way it is. But the team is certainly interested, given their presence at Gordon's workout.

What about you folks? Do you think it would be worth the Vikings' while to bid a third-round pick in the Supplemental Draft on Josh Gordon, meaning they would have to give up their third-rounder in the 2013 NFL Draft? Or should the Vikings simply pass on the whole Supplemental Draft process as they've done every year since 1989?
