I'm sitting here watching the NFL combine. And yes, I'm drifting in and out of sleep as I do, but A.Q. Shipley is working out for the scouts. He did 33 reps on the bench press which only four other guys were able to top.
In the 40 he ran a 5.19. But what was interesting was the comments by the announcers. They are saying if you talk to any scout they hate Shipley because he's only 6'1" and he has the shortest arms in the combine at only 29.5". But if you talk to any offensive line coach they love him because of his film. The commentator said if you pop in the Rose Bowl tape by the end of the game you can see that Rey Maualuga had absolutely had enough of Shipley. They are saying Shipley will be a starter in the league.
The NFL Network lists Shipley as the #4 center in the draft.
