RICHARD GORDONSixth round, No. 181 overall
Pos.: Tight end
School: Miami
Hometown: Miami
Ht. 6-4; Wt. 265

College career: Caught 10 passes for 62 yards with no touchdownsin his 49-game career at Miami. Scouting report: Compared to Antonio Gates for both his size and penchant for injury. His potential sometimes is seen as a wash due to his inability to stay on the field.How he fits with Raiders: Another curious choice, what with the Raiders already having a Pro Bowl tight end in Zach Miller (though he is a free agent) and a serviceable backup in Brandon Myers. Special teams standout as a rookie, perhaps.
