The combine has begun and so will we here at DCN. With draft prospects becoming more and more known the Cowboys have shown great interest in a few players. However, you guys have shown interest in a few players too. A player that you guys have talked about is WR Jordan Shipley from Texas and today he is the target of our Prospect Profile.
Jordan Shipley (6-0, 195lbs)
Shipley is a speedy experienced receiver. His time in the game has allowed him to study the game and understand complex defensive formations and assignments.
Why the Take Him: Shipley is a Texas player so naturally people would love to see him in the Blue and Silver. Beyond that Shipley is an explosive player with great speed and ability. He could add depth to a mediocre receiving unit as well as fill in as a slot receiver. He is an attractive pick if he’s available in the third round.
Why they don’t: You know, there is just not that many weaknesses in this kid. I believe he’s a talented player being easily forgotten in a draft with some great receivers.
Final Word: Shipley is a versatile player who could make plays in different position. He is also known for making big plays when they needed them. However, you’re looking at placing him next to Ogletree and I’m not sure you want to stop the development of Ogletree quite yet.
