Steelers Draft C A.Q. Shipley With 226th Pick In Seventh Round


The Steelers drafted center A.Q. Shipley, from Penn State with their 7th round pick of the 2009 NFL draft. The pick was the 226th overall and the 17th pick of the seventh round.

Shipley is a 6\'1", 304lb center.

Combine Results:
40 Yard Dash : 5.26 seconds
Bench Press : 33.0 reps
Vertical Jump : 31.0 inches
Broad Jump : 100.0 inches
3 Cone Drill : 7.46 seconds
20 Yard Shuttle : 4.4 seconds

Shipley is an undersized zone center with short arms who understands technique and leverage. Local Penn State product who slowly slid all the way down the draft board after getting hyped early. Does not hold blocks well, but is an intense gritty player. Will have to work very hard and improve fast to earn a roster spot.
