Difference between 12th and 14th round is meaningless. Anyone you’re getting there is a dart throw at best so honestly, you’re not missing out on any value at all. It’s not like its the difference between a 2nd and a 4th rounder or a 4th and 6th rounder even. So that argument is honestly out the window.
If I knew for certain Gordon is going to play, then agree its gordon by a long shot. You’d be hard pressed to find me 3 receivers more talented than Gordon and he’s proven it. Fact of the matter is, you don’t know. Davis is younger and being able to keep him for longer is another factor you have to consider. I love Davis and even I am not certain Davis will have a massive breakout year but as long as I see like 700-800 yards and a few TDs from him, I’d feel pretty damn good about it.
It’s a risk and age thing for me here. And end of the day, Gordon still plays for Cleveland in a super crowded offense. Landry going to soak up a tonne of targets. Njoku needs targets. And then there’s DJ who is going to soak a bunch of targets running from the slot. On top of all that, you got Tyrod taylor throwing the rock.
Titans pretty much only have Davis. They drafted him to be the guy and he’s going to be the guy. Both come with their risks but the risk of Gordon being kicked out of the league permanently is very real. Now if he ends up showing up week 1, then its a different story. If we know for sure he’s playing, I take Gordon. But even then, you always have that risk in the back of him never playing again.
