Cleveland Browns: Josh Gordon 1,000 Yard Watch
How about the Cleveland Browns rookie wide receiver Josh Gordon?! Seen as a raw and gifted player, Gordon was not supposed to make a major impact this season. After all, the guy missed all of his last season of college ball. So how is that decision to use a second round pick on him in the supplemental draft looking now?
Gordon is not only making an impact, he is vying for a 1,000 yard season. In Sunday’s win over the Kansas City Chiefs, Flash added eight catches and 89 yards to his impressive season. Gordon now has 42 receptions for 732 yards. With three games left, if no. 13 can average 89 yards a game, he will eclipse the 1,000 yard mark. It’s not too terribly unrealistic either.
It is clear that Brandon Weeden and him have developed in to a nice combination. Weeden shows confidence and trust in Gordon that gets stronger by the game. What seems to be impressing Browns fans the most about Gordon is his size and hands. On just about every pass, Gordon is seen catching the football with his hands, not his body. Gordon also has the ability to get yards after the catch with his speed and physical nature. Gordon is just what the Browns needed to jump start the receiving group.
As the Browns look to increase their winning streak, Gordon is instrumental in these last three games. With five touchdowns on the year, it would be nice to see the 21 year old get a few more before the seasons’ over. The rookie’s orange and brown future is very bright.
