I watched Gordon all through College here at Nebraska. He's a good guy, a decent-to-good 3rd basemen, and he's got some OK pop in his bat.
The only thing is, he faded in the postseason pretty much every year. His senior year when we needed him the most he was almost nonexistent in Regional play, and we got bounced. Those are the kinds of guys that he's playing against now - the best of the best. In that company he does not stand out.
I personally have always thought he was over-hyped. There's a reason he spent four years in college. There are questions about his ability and his mental state that he hasn't answered yet. Will he answer those questions? Possibly. But he may well end up a middle-tier 3B for his whole career.
