Thursday we will take a look at new Cincinnati Bengals receiver Jordan Shipley, who was taken in the third round.

Here is Shipley's full scouting report, according to the draft experts at Pro Football Weekly:

  • Positives: Extremely tough. Very crafty and knows how to slip through traffic and work the middle of the field. Has soft hands and good ball skills. Good functional playing speed. Good short-area quickness and vision to elude defenders in the return game. Outstanding production. Exceptional work ethic.
  • Negatives: Lacks functional strength and struggles to get off the line against tight press coverage. Struggles to beat the jam and gets knocked off his routes. Durability is suspect.

Share your thoughts on Shipley, one of the newest additions to the AFC North, below.
