Positive: 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.
Negative: 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."
Negatives: Lacks any real suddenness... Struggles to create separation... Does not look like a natural route runner, will tip his breaks and round off some routes... Receiving skills are still a big question mark... Has just ten career receptions... Is rarely thrown to... Sometimes just flashes his talent... Didn't take advantage of playing time, never lived up to his potential out of high school... Missed all but the 2009 season opener with a left arm injury, received a medical hardship to come back in 2010, is an older prospect, high school class of 2005... Still raw, a big time boom or bust type prospect."
