Josh Gordon is the only player taken in the supplemental draft

The 2012 NFL supplemental draft has come and gone, and Baylor receiver Josh Gordon, going to the Browns with a second-round pick, was the only player selected.

That’s not a big surprise, as Gordon was the only player who looked like a slam-dunk pick. Former TCU running back Ed Wesley was generally considered the second-best player in this year’s supplemental draft, but after he measured 5-foot-8 and weighed 196 pounds, and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.7 seconds, we weren’t expecting him to be selected.

Wesley will now be free to sign with any team as an undrafted free agent, as will the other six prospects who were available in this year’s supplemental draft: Boise State defensive back Quaylon Ewing, Syracuse running back Adam Harris, Iowa State tackle Adrian Haughton, Carson-Newman linebacker Larry Lumpkin, Georgia defensive end Montez Robinson and McMurray wide receiver Houston Tuminello.

The order of the supplemental draft was determined by a lottery held just before the draft began. That order is below.

1. Buffalo

2. Cleveland

3. Tampa Bay

4. Miami

5. St. Louis

6. Minnesota

7. Washington

8. Jacksonville

9. Indianapolis

10. Carolina

11. Philadelphia

12. San Diego

13. Tennessee

14. Oakland

15. Arizona

16. Kansas City

17. Seattle

18. Chicago

19. New York Jets

20. Dallas

21. San Francisco

22. Houston

23. Pittsburgh

24. Atlanta

25. Cincinnati

26. Baltimore

27. New England

28. New Orleans

29. Green Bay

30. Denver

31. Detroit

32. New York Giants

  1. They could have had him for a third round pick, but since they got burned on RGIII and Kendal Wright they chose to overpay to avoid losing out again. Wonder who the new GM in Cleveland will be next year..

  2. I know they needed WRs, but maybe just a little bit of a reach there Cleveland?

  3. Could have had a receiver who would help more this year for a lower price by trading with the Packers or maybe even getting one off the waiver wire in a few weeks. Holmgren was a great coach; not such a good GM.

  4. so let me get this right lol the cleveland browns drafted a 3rd-4th round tackle in the 2nd round of the 2012 draft named geoff schwartz(cordy glenn and jonathin martin were still on the board if they wanted a tackle) while passing on wideouts like reuben randle stephen hill alshon jeffery ryan broyles and chris givens.Then they go out and spend next years 2nd rounder on a supplemental wr with anywhere from 3rd to 5th round value.WAKE UP HOLMGREEN AND COMPANY!!

  5. No problem with it. 6′ 3″ with a 6′ 10″ wingspan, ran a 4.5 without training 3-4 months to boost his time sounds pretty legit.

    And with the Browns reportedly interested in Kendall Wright with their 2nd 1st this past draft, paying a second rounder to get a guy who scouts considered a better prospect seems like a good deal

  6. seems to me that the browns stink now. isn’t josh cribbs their best offensive threat?

    adding this guy may be giving up a second round pick but since they suck now and will probably suck next year even if they keep their second round pick, what’s the difference? who knows, maybe heckert and holmgren get lucky… and if not, they probably have a short shelf live anyway.
