2012 NFL Supplemental Draft: Cleveland Browns Take RG3 Teammate Josh Gordon

Newly drafted Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III wasn't shy about lobbying his new team to take his old Baylor teammate Josh Gordon in Thursday's NFL Supplemental Draft, but the Cleveland Browns beat Washington - and many, many other teams - to the punch by using a second round pick on Gordon.

That's a lot higher than Washington or any other team were predicted to take Gordon. By rule, the Browns will forfeit a second round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, a rule that likely kept D.C. out of serious contention for Gordon (unless he fell to the fifth round or lower) because of the steep amount of picks the organization gave up to get Griffin in April.
