While he didn't run in the 4.4s like ESPN's Adam Schefter predicted, his forty time should be no worry. He hasn't been able to get the proper 40 time training as others that attend the Combine each year. He's likely a 4.4 guy with more training. Also, keep in mind that he doesn't have to be 4.4 level speed to be an outside recevier in the NFL, which he can certainly be for his 6'3 size.
Among players 6'2 or taller at the NFL Combine, only 5 ran a faster forty yard dash: Michael Floyd (4.47), Stephen Hill (4.36), Tommy Streeter (4.40), Derek Moye (4.48), and Marvin McNutt (4.50). Also note that this is based on just one reported hand time, not a mix of six hand/electronic times. His vertical jump put him at 10th among NFL Combine participates, but still higher than Streeter, Rueben Randle and Brian Quick.
Two highly touted second round picks had the following numbers:
Rueben Randle: 6'3, 210, 4.55 forty, 31 vert, 10'1 broad, 15 bench reps,
Brian Quick: 6'3, 220, 4.55 forty, 34 vert, 9'11 broad, 15 bench reps

Along wiith that, Gordon was able to finish all routes during his workout despite pulling his left quadriceps. And Adam Caplan again reports that Gordon did not drop a pass in any of the drills.
