Both are fan favorites, and for good reason. The number of clutch catches Cosby has come up with is ridiculous. We can always count on Quan to get that first down if a pass comes his way. He even returns kicks pretty well. As for explosiveness, Quan doesn't have much of that. The 4.4 speed of his youth is a bit diminished I guess, but that doesn't take away from what he does best. He even has somewhat of a baseball career in the waiting perhaps. Will Cosby be drafted though? A slow, short receiver doesn't open talent-scouts' eyes. But his body of work is very strong. Will it be enough?
As for Shipley, he's just had a ton of bad luck with injuries. He has nice hands, and is pretty fast, although, not anything jaw-dropping. He's finally a senior, and this could be his break out year. Some have said that he might be our "deep-threat" this year. Not trying to hate on him, but I'm skeptical. It seems we still haven't seem his true potential unleashed.
In short, both are great college players, especially Cosby but will a team at the next level take either?
