Will Shipley
Will Shipley Drafted By The Philadelphia Eagles With 127th Pick
1 month ago

The Philadelphia Eagles  have drafted Clemson running back Will Shipley with the 127th pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Shipley was a huge contributor to the Clemson offense the entirety of his three-year career. He racked up 3,350 scrimmage yards and 33 touchdowns in his career as a Tiger. He tested great at the combine and received a relative athletic score of 9.61. Shipley comes out of college with 85 career receptions which will be a huge boost to his value.

 

With Kenneth Gainwell entering the final year of his deal it looks like the Eagles have found their new long-term receiving back. Shipley may struggle to find relevance right away, but his receiving skills should force him on the field eventually and he finds himself in a high-flying offense. He is worth a dynasty roster spot for a rookie third round pick.
