    In his office Friday afternoon, Philbin pointed to the practice fields outside and said: "Out there is where we're going to find out about Ryan Tannehill, Matt Moore and David Garrard. I don't remember a master plan that said, 'Here's when Ryan's going to play.' If there is one, I was never told about it. We'll let them come to work, and the best man will win."'

    Pulled up with a quad injury during the run. Suggested as a reason for it being a little worse than expected.

    At this point it's sounding like he'll definitely be drafted. He needed a blowout pro day to go in the 2nd round the way people were talking about for a little bit. With this I think he goes 3rd or 4th round. The character actually checks out better than you'd think, IMO.

    Similar numbers to Brian Quick and Rueben Randle, who both went in the 2nd round of the 2012 draft, but both played full college careers.

    I think if he had proper training and didn't blow a tire during the run, he probably would have had overall better results than Brian Quick and Reuben Randle. As things stand he did have better results than those two, but only by a margin, and I think his results would have been cleanly better if he had a more regular training process.

    It was a good day, he did pretty much exactly as the scouts expected, but I think maybe some scouts were hoping to be pleasantly surprised and with that not happening it's hard to imagine him making good on the 2nd round talk that you heard out of some people prior to this. Like I been saying, I'll set the over/under at 3.5 for which round he goes in. I think the crowds will take the under and the sharps the over.

    Supplemental draft prospect Gordon runs 4.52 forty at Pro Day

    Supplemental draft prospect Gordon runs 4.52 forty at Pro Day

    Posted by Evan Silva on July 10, 2012, 12:41 PM EDT
    Top supplemental draft prospect Josh Gordon conducted an individual Pro Day workout at the Houston Texansí indoor facility on Tuesday morning. Per Adam Caplan, most NFL teams in attendance sent two personnel evaluators Ė in most instances their college scouting director and one area scout.
    The Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills, and Dallas Cowboys were among the teams confirmed to have attended. Obviously, there were Texans officials on hand, too. In all, 21 teams showed up.
    Caplan reports that Gordon ran a 4.52 forty-yard dash after measuring in at 6-foot-3 1/8 and 224 pounds. Gordon recorded a 36-inch vertical leap with a 10-foot, 1-inch broad jump. He did 13 reps on the bench.
    While the forty time isnít quite as good as the pre-Pro Day hype might have suggested, itís still very fast for a human being who weighs over 220 pounds. Gordon is big, and he can run.

    Not sure if this had been posted, but saw this and found it interesting that he was even slower than we thought. No way I am interested in spending anything higher than a 5th on this guy. JMO

    He pulled up with a quad injury and still ran 4.52.
