I remember people saying how stupid Holmgren was for taking him in the Supplemental Draft. There isn't a WR playing better than him right now. If I knew that the coaching staff would use him properly I'd be all for giving a first and second for him.
this is what I was worried about as well during those trade rumors.. I felt we'd be wasting our high draft pick on an offensive player that Roman wouldn't use properly.
Gordan is an offensive player that you keep on the field on almost every play. With us, Roman and Harbs would be rotating him as if he were a dlineman like they do already with our receivers.
but then when you think about it, Kaep likes to throw it to the open man...and Gordan is a receiver that could beat his man and get true separation more often than not.
Demaryius Thomas is the closest receiver I see to what T.O. brought to the field. (maybe Antonio Bryant as well)...but that is the type of receiver Gordan is...big, fast, goes over the middle and has that extra gear to take it to the house.
edit- maybe not two 1st round picks....but maybe our 1st round pick and Jon Baldwin (before we showed the league that we didn't use him anyway)
