Gordon To CLE; 'Boys Silent In Supplemental

The NFL's annual Supplemental Draft has come and gone, with the Cowboys shut out for the 16th time in the last 17 years.

Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon was the only player selected. He was awarded to the Cleveland Browns, who took him in the second round. In doing so, they will forfeit their Round 2 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

As late as Thursday morning, the Cowboys were internally discussing which round they would've been willing to select the 6-3, 225-pound pass catcher, most likely the third or fourth.

Because Cleveland's second-round pick came before the Cowboys' own, the Browns would've been awarded the receiver even if Dallas had put in a second-round claim.

The Browns are believed to be the only team to have offered a second-rounder for Gordon.

The last Cowboys pick in the supplemental draft was nose tackle Josh Brent, who they selected in the seventh round in 2010.
