Baylor football coach Art Briles has no doubt in his mind Browns rookie receiver Josh Gordon, taken in the second round of the supplemental draft Thursday, would've been a first-round pick this year and that he can start right away.
"If Josh had played in 2011, he definitely would've been a first-round pick, without question," said Briles, who was forced to suspend Gordon indefinitely at Baylor following the 2011 season after a second positive marijuana test.
Would he have gone around the same spot as his former teammate Kendall Wright, who went No. 20 the Titans? The Browns coveted Wright with their No. 22 pick and opted for Brandon Weeden there when he was gone.
"That's like asking me to compare my two sons," said Briles. "I love them both. "They're just great athletes and very skilled. Josh is more of an outside receiver, but they're but they're both extremely gifted and top-tier picks."
