Biography: Part-time player the past four seasons who saw limited action last season with a left arm injury. Did not record a reception as a senior after junior totals of 3/24.
Positives: Big, athletic tight end yet to transition fully onto the football field. Fluid moving about the field, effortlessly makes the reception in contorted positions then uses his frame to shield away defenders and protect the pass. Gets up in a crowd for the difficult catch, takes a pounding and holds onto the ball. Bends his knees as a blocker, quickly gets off the line and explosive at the point.
Negatives: Minimally productive in college and has four career receptions at Miami. Must be more aware of his surroundings.
Analysis: Gordon is a prospect with great upside potential yet at the same time a football player that displays more flashes then consistency on the field. His size, speed and the ability sporadically shown is worth placing him on the practice squad for a year or two.
