PROFILE:

FIFL Experience: Undrafted in the 2026 FIFL Draft. Signed as a Free Agent before Training Camp.

Professional Experience: Even though many mock drafts projected him to be taken earlier, Shockley was drafted in the 7th round (223rd overall) by the Atlanta Falcons in the 2006 NFL Draft. He was the first University of Georgia player selected by the Falcons since 1994. On August 27, 2006, then Falcons head coach Jim Mora announced that Shockley had made the team as the 3rd string quarterback (over Bryan Randall) and would lead the scout team. Shockley missed the entire 2007 season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament and damage to the medial collateral ligament in his left knee during a preseason game against the Buffalo Bills. After the Atlanta Falcons picked Matt Ryan with their third overall pick in the 2008 draft, first year coach Mike Smith made every position open for competition. In a tough battle, hometown favorite Shockley won the third string job over Joey Harrington. Subsequently, Harrington was released by the Falcons shortly after the announcement. On September 5, 2009, Shockley was cut by the Falcons, but was signed to the practice squad on September 6. He was released from the practice squad October 21 to make room on the roster for running back Antone Smith. He was re-signed to the practice squad on December 1. After his contract expired following the season, Shockley was re-signed to a future contract on January 4, 2010. He was waived again on July 9. Shockley did not allow much time for downtime as a professional football player following his release from the Atlanta Falcons. He agreed to attend a minicamp with the Omaha Nighthawks of the UFL on July 19, 2010. Shockley signed with the team on August 23 and became a backup quarterback playing behind former Philadelphia Eagles' Jeff Garcia. Omaha finished the season at 3–5, and Shockley completed 2-of-5 passes for 30 yards in limited playing time.
During the next season, Omaha re-signed Shockley to the team on July 15, 2011. The Nighthawks later released him during training camp on September 2, 2011. On September 27, 2011 Shockley was re-signed by the Omaha Nighthawks due to their starter, Eric Crouch, being placed on injured reserve. Shockley's Omaha Nighthawks finished 2011 at 1–4 as their only win came on October 1 against Sacramento in a close one, 33–30.

College: University of Georgia's new incoming head coach in 2001, Mark Richt, made Shockley a priority recruit, and he is generally regarded as Richt's first official recruit at Georgia. Richt ultimately chose redshirt freshman David Greene to be the starting quarterback for the Bulldogs in 2001, while Shockley was redshirted. Greene went on to set the NCAA record for wins as a starting quarterback in a career, but over the course of those four years, Shockley did see some playing time in a modified dual-quarterback system. In 2002 as a redshirt freshman, playing in parts of 10 games, Shockley completed 32-of-52 passes (61.5%) for 415 yards with five touchdowns and a pass efficiency rating of 152.62. He rushed for 111 yards and two more touchdowns. He also threw a 37-yard TD pass in the Nokia Sugar Bowl win over Florida State University as the Bulldogs wrapped up their first SEC Championship season in 20 years. In 2003, Shockley injured his knee midway through the season and finished with 9-of-21 pass attempts for 88 yards and one touchdown. He added another 101 yards on the ground and a rushing touchdown in six games. In 2004, Shockley completed 26-of-60 (43.3%) passes for 464 yards with four touchdowns and one interception. He had 24 rushes for 113 yards in 10 games. Shockley earned an SEC Academic Honor Roll award in 2004 as a Speech Communications major. He is a member of the Phi Beta Sigma fraternity. In 2005, Shockley played in 12 of Georgia's 13 games, completing 173-of-310 (55.8%) passes for 2,588 yards and 24 touchdowns with five interceptions. He also gained 322 yards rushing in 78 attempts with four touchdowns. Shockley had a longest run of 40 yards and completed a 56-yard touchdown pass to tight end Martrez Milner for his longest pass play of the season—as both of these highlights occurred in the same game on September 3, 2005 against Boise State. Shockley won the FCA Bobby Bowden Football Player of the Year Award, finished third in the voting for the Associated Press Player of the Year, and led Georgia to a 10–3 record and the No. 10 ranking nationally by the AP College Football Poll during his senior year.

Personal: Born 3-3-83 in College Park, Georgia. D.J. Shockley played football, basketball and ran track at North Clayton High School. His father, Donald Shockley Sr, was his team's head coach. As a senior, he threw for 1,861 yards and 11 touchdowns, as well as rushing for 864 yards and eight more touchdowns. Shockley became the starting quarterback by his sophomore season at North Clayton High School. He threw 28 touchdowns and for more than 3,200 yards his final two seasons while rushing for nearly 1,600 yards.[1] The native of College Park, Georgia was a highly recruited QB earning various national accolades: 2000 USA Today All-USA Second Team, Max Emfinger's Top 125 players (#1 Athletic quarterback), 2000 Parade Magazine All-America Team, SUPERPREP Elite 50 (SuperPrep's No. 1 ranked QB), The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Super Southern 100, Top 50 in Georgia, Marvelous Metro Eleven, Class AAAA All-State Quarterback, and 2000 Georgia Sports Writers Association Class AAAA All-State Quarterback.
