Bengals Add WR Jordan Shipley In The Third

The Bengals add another weapon for Carson Palmer in round three; a player by the way that I had hoped the Bengals would get and had in my mock draft:

Texas WR Jordan Shipley.

Shipley is a reliable, tough receiver that won’t have the top-end speed to stretch defenses, but will be someone Palmer can count on to pick up first downs and make catches in traffic a la TJ Houshmandzadeh.

Shipley is 5’11 and 1/2, 193 pounds.  He ran a 4.54 forty, had a great 36 1/2 inch vertical leap, and an astounding 10 foot broad jump, so he’s an athlete.  He was also very productive at Texas, compiling 248 career receptions for 3,191 yards and 33 touchdowns. In 2009 alone he posted 116 receptions, 1,485 yards and 13 scores.

I love this pick!
