  • Jordan Shipley Visiting?

    http://espn.go.com/blog/afcwest

    Bill "chicken fried" Williamson claims he is coming to denver for a visit but he dosent even sound so sure.

    anyways, i like shipley and i like what he did against bama he will be the next wes welker or better yet the next brandon stokley of the Denver BRONCOS!.

    i smell a solid 3d round pick.


    Now go get your shine box

    Chicken Fried is correct. If we draft Shipley, it will be Christmas in June for me. I've been wanting him in Orange and Blue for a long time.

          i dont think he is needed, if marshall stays we seen what gaffney and Llyod in week 17 so i think:

          #1:Branndon Marshall
          #2:Jabar Gaffney
          #3 Slot:Eddie Royal
          #4:Brandon Llyod
          #5:Brandon Stokley
          #6:Kenny Mckinley

            We need him just in case Marshall is gone. This is probably Stokes last year. We don't know how McKinley is coming along with his injury. I think he would be a great pickup, but thats just me.

              you can never have enough depth at WR, and I would rather have shipley then stokley anyways, stokley has been getting alot worse the past couple of years and especially last year I saw alot of key 3rd down drops from him. I would love to see this kid and toby gerhart in the orange and blue (maybe lupati too) oh ya my spine just shivered on that one
              A healthy Kenneth Dixon is a top 5 NFL RB.

                Here's something I got off a 49ers site.
                I believe Jordan Shipley to be made of such rookie gold. A sixth-year senior, he is only slightly younger than Alex Smith. Coming from Texas, he's not stranger to football at a high level.

                Shipley holds almost every major high school career receiving record for the state of Texas, including career receptions (252), receiving yards (5,424), and receiving touchdowns (73). Do I need to reiterate, this is Texas—where high school football is nutritionally considered to be a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner?

                In 2000, in his first varsity game as a freshman at Rotan High, Shipley totaled 454 all-purpose yards and returned 3 punts for touchdowns. Shipley helped lead the Burnet Bulldogs to back-to-back Class 3A State Championship games in 2002 and 2003.

                College didn't slow Shipley down too much. Shipley had a stand-out game in the 2008 Texas-Oklahoma football game against the No. 1 ranked Sooners. He returned a a kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown; it was the longest kickoff return in the 103-year history of the Red River Shootout. He also caught a touchdown pass, and the Longhorns won 45–35. On October 25, 2008, Shipley set a Texas Longhorn record for receptions, catching 15 passes for 168 yards as No. 1 Texas defeated No. 6 Oklahoma State 28-24.

                Shipley was a senior in 2008, but filed paperwork with the NCAA to request an extra year of eligibility to make up for games missed due to injuries. On December 22, 2008 the NCAA granted Shipley's hardship request for a sixth season. Following the 2008 season, Shipley underwent shoulder surgery for what he stated was "an injury I aggravated a couple of times during the year, but was able to play through. I worked hard to rehab it and kept playing. But now that I have time, I got it cleaned up and can get back to full strength for next season."

                Shipley proved to be a vital member of the 2009 Texas Longhorn football team, including scoring a touchdown off of a Texas Tech punt in the Longhorns' 34-24 victory. On November 7, 2009, Shipley caught 11 passes for a school record 273 yards during a home game against the University of Central Florida Knights.

                Shipley's play during the season helped lead Texas to the 2009 Big 12 Championship Game against Nebraska. He caught 7 passes for 71 yards in the 13-12 win and helped Texas earn a spot in the 2010 BCS Championship Game.

                But is was in this BCS Bowl where Shipley really sold me. After his Quarterback, Heisman candidate Colt McCoy, went down with a shoulder injury that left his throwing arm looking like a dead snake, Texas' backup Garrette Gilbert came in only to prove ineffective for the first half. Then, Shipley emerged.

                The Wideout caught 2 TDs to bring Texas within a field goal of tying the game. A fumble later iced the loss for Texas, but it was one of the most heroic performances by a WR in recent memory—to throw your team on your back in the biggest of big games and nearly pull it off shows character and poise. The only other player in that game to shine for Texas and never give up was likely first-round pick Sergio Kindle (who I would also advocate as a good pickup for SF).

                Shipley will drop, however. A modest combine (16 reps on the big bench, and a 4.6 Forty time) is going to decrease his draft value. Additionally, he has shorter than ideal height and weight (5'11'', 193 lbs.)

                But he has slot receiver written all over him to me. Quoting NFL.com "He is explosive off the line and runs extremely crisp routes that allow him to separate from defenders with a good short burst. He is a natural when it comes to adjusting to off-target throws and will go over the middle to catch the ball in traffic. If he had better top end speed he would be pretty much the total package."

                They once said if Jerry Rice had better speed, that he would be the total package (blasphemous comparison, I know). And although WR is not considered a need given the style of offense SF coaches and coordinators have planned, Kick returner is. And the prevailing philosophy of "iron sharpens iron" makes me want him on the team even more, if for no other reason than to push Jason Hill and Josh Morgan to be productive.

                My final concern is: can he block? Sort of. Will he block? Certainly.

                He'll be a steal in the third, or a gamble in the second, but I see this lucky number—one of if not the most mature senior in the draft—paying off big, and immediately.

                    what the hell difference does it make if hes a white or black slot receiver? - what do you think just because hes white like Wes Welker and not black like Eddie royal hes going to excel in McD's system?

                      welker
                      gonzalez
                      stokley

                        eddie royal is our slot man,

                        anyway if we lose bmarsh jordan shipley wont replace him.

                        If marshall stays though and we get a wide reciever i want jacobt ford.

                          hahaha yea i guess you are right in a sense - I would love to pick up Shipley but I think he would be developed as a number 2 in this offense with Royal as our man in the slot
