Cleveland surrendered its second-round choice in the 2013 draft as a result of the selection.

'We are excited to add Josh Gordon to our football team,' Browns head coach Pat Shurmur said. 'I feel as though he possesses the skill and ability to be an outstanding player in this league. He is an excellent addition to our 2012 rookie class, and I am looking forward to working with him and our entire team in a couple of weeks.'

Gordon, who was the only player taken in the draft, spent 2009-10 with Baylor, recording 43 receptions for 721 yards and seven touchdowns through 22 games.

He then transferred to the University of Utah and was forced to sit out the entire 2011 season because of the NCAA's transfer rules.
