PLAYERS
Richard Gordon
Round 6, Pick 181
Position: TE
Class:  5Sr
School: Miami-Fl
Conference: Atlantic Coast
HT: 6-3.5
WT: 267
40 Time: 4.65
Biography: Started seven games as a senior and caught 6 passes for 30 yards. Played in one game during the 2009 campaign before suffering a season-ending injury. Primarily used as a backup in 2008.

Positives: "Athletic tight end prospect who's been a serviceable player on the college level. Gives effort blocking, keeps his head on a swivel, and plays with good awareness. Stays square and blocks with good lean. Extends his hands to make catches away from his frame."

Negatives: Does not play to his size or speed. Stiff. More athlete than football player. Does not consistently come away with the difficult catch. Marginal strength at the point.

Analysis: Gordon is a size prospect who never truly developed on the college level yet has enough skills to get consideration as a third tight end in the NFL.

Projection: FA
