- Texas' top NFL Draft-Eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 6. WR Jaxson Shipley, Senior...The Longhorns' leader in receptions the past two seasons, Shipley, who is the younger brother of Jordan Shipley, has a similar skill-set as his brother, who was a third round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. The younger Shipley won't match his older brother's receiving marks at Texas, but that's largely due to the fact that Jordan played with Colt McCoy and Jaxson has had to catch passes from wildly inconsistent Case McCoy and David Ash.
Shipley doesn't have elite physical traits with only ordinary size, speed and strength, but he has some shake in his routes and knows how to hold defenders, displaying a strong competitive nature at the catch point. Shipley likely won't be drafted as high as his brother (84th overall), but like his brother, he knows how to operate out of the slot and be an effective and reliable underneath target. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
