The Cowboys are interested in former Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon. They were in Houston on Tuesday, along with many other teams, scouting Gordon's workout. We will find out how interested they are Thursday when the NFL's supplemental draft takes place.
John McClain, the Houston Chronicle's long-time NFL writer, talked to Gordon after the workout. According to McClain, Gordon measured 6-3 1/8 and weighed 224 pounds. He ran a 4.52 and had a 36-inch vertical. The Cowboys were among 21 teams at the workout.
Gordon could go as high as the second round, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported this week. The team that makes the highest bid for Gordon will lose its pick in the corresponding round in 2013.
Gordon didn't play last season after being caught with marijuana. He caught 42 passes for 714 yards and seven touchdowns in 2010. He transferred to Utah but never played, leaving for financial reasons.
The Cowboys used a seventh-round supplemental pick on nose tackle Josh Brent in 2010. They could use a third receiver. The competition for Laurent Robinson's vacated spot stands to include Danny Coale, Dwayne Harris, Andre Holmes, Kevin Ogletree and Raymond Radway.
Former TCU running back Ed Wesley also has a chance to be drafted. According to NFL.com, Wesley worked out at TCU for 12 teams earlier this week. He ran a 4.68 and 4.72 in his two 40-yard dash attempts, according to the Web site.
