Dennis’ Scouting Notes


  • Home run hitter who reaches top speed in a hurry
  • Tremendous balance and is very hard to bring down
  • Patient runner who will follow blocks and burst into the second level
  • Great pass pro


  • Tentative through the line likes to dance
  • You can almost see the wheels turning in his head as he struggles to make a decision
  • Wasn’t made to pick his own hole at Wisconsin which could be an issue at the next level
  • Landing spot and development makes Gordon the ultimate boom/bust
