Blair Brown/Anthony Walker.

Sharpe is huge, though, at 6-foot-6, 343 pounds with an 87-inch wingspan, and Oakland head coach Jack Del Rio had some inside information on the Florida project. Del Rio’s son, Luke, was the Gators’ starting quarterback part of last season.

It's always funny what comes out the other end when the media plays telephone. I bet one person on twitter said he may have vision issues and it just spiraled from there. That's life in the digital age.

Glad he checked out ok. He looked good in combine drills and on tape. good feet for a guy his size.


It is interesting that we seem to be trying to get major value on 2 prospects in Conley and Sharpe that are viewed to have red flags that may not materialize. Let's hope that these picks pan out.

I would have preferred Will Holden.

I had Zach Banner and David Sharpe tagged as "typical" offensive lineman the Raiders might draft. I nearly used Sharpe in my mock as a 6th rounder. Ultimately I nixed the idea because I didn't the Raiders would go OT back to back. I compared their stock to Vadal Alexander's. I don't understand what the difference is between their stock and Vadal's as they are all heavy footed and lack the lateral quickness to succeed at OT in MOST NFL PB systems.

Sharpe has limited flexibility and Banner had hip surgery in college to fix a birth defect in his hips which limited his flexibility. Imo, neither has the flexibility to move inside to OG.

Tice's coaching and Carr's quick release (ranked 12th 2.49) is creating value at the OL position. They are feasting on heavy footed O linemen. My concern is less pass protection as whether this type of offensive lineman can get to the second level in creating running lanes.

So seems like he is going to be groomed at RT I would think.

Jylan Ware is the guy the must be developing for LT. He looks great.

It's not like we don't like athletes at the OT position. The selection of Jayln Ware who's also functionally flexible shows that.

IMO more athletic than he's getting credit for. Huge size is obvious and I like that he has time to learn, will definitely get a shot on the outside and I think he sticks there. Will never knock adding mass to the trenches in the mid/late rounds so welcome to the family!

Well, it's obvious that they would have a harder time getting up field quickly. They are huge. But once they have been in the league a few years and get there bodies where they need to be thru training, development and diet they will be adequate for our needs. On top of that we have elite guys next to them that at guard that move well.

I figured we would draft an OL in the 4th, had it in one of my first mocks. Nevet let Tice go and keep getting deeper and deeper at OL. I never want Derek to have to go through what David did.

Sharpe will end up starting at some point the next two years and play very well for you.

I just never heard of him before. Names I knew better...
TE Butt
RB's Williams, Gallman
DT Watkins
LB's Walker
S/CB King

The 'blind' thing had me pissed at first but it seems way overblown so OLine depth is all good. At the time not happy, but he's growing on me.

Everyone has their favorites, but not knowing his name shouldn't be a reason to hate the pick. Not you specifically, but a lot of fans do that
