Shipley to Steelers in seventh

A.Q. Shipley is going home.

The western Pennsylvania native was taken in the seventh round of Sunday's NFL Draft, going with the 226th overall selection to the Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers.

The 6-foot, 304-pound Shipley had a strong showing at the NFL Combine and Penn State's Pro Day, but his draft status was hurt by a lack of height and arm length. Four centers were taken before the Rimington Trophy winner.
