Default AQ Shipley

i found this on draftcountdown forum. it was posted by Mr. Goosemahn. he says it's a collection of mini-camps reports from various sources. there is info on other players as well. take it for what it's worth.

A.Q. Shipley has coaches astounded. Not only did he ask (or is about to ask) for Mike Webster's number (52), but he's digesting the playbook at an unbelievable rate. Shipley scored a 40 in the wonderlic, which was the SECOND HIGHEST OF ALL PLAYERS IN THE DRAFT! A coach even said that if he kept on learning and playing at this level, he would not only make the team, but he'd at least dress up for games and might even be considered as legitimate competition for the center spot. Talk about a great player in the seventh round!
i looked around for the real source, but could not locate it.

i would't give him webster's number. let shipley attempt to make his own mark with another number.

I'd give him 64 if he wants to live in a legacy of another Steeler.

Not to be a negative nellie, but how would the source even know he was about to ask for Webster's number? That would be way inside info. I think he might make the roster as well, but this seems a bit over the top.

Anyhow thanks, good for debate.

Those are some interesting positive signs, as to how reliable they are is questionable. But i do think intellect is an underrated attribute of NFL athletes. The Wonderlic might not seem like a big deal, but Vince young bombed it, and look at him.

that type of info could easilly be leaked by a laundry room attendant.

i heard an interview with a former nfl coach who worked him out (in addition with many others like j. smith and e. britton) to prepare for the draft. he believes he has all the tools (with exception to t-rex arms) to be a successful center with the steelers.

fwiw...

If anyone gets 63, I'd hope it'd be Urbik.

I would love to see Shipley do good for Pittsburgh but to be as good as Webster. I don't know if that will ever happen.

He wanted Webster's number to honor him --- he played with Webster's son in high school
