David Sharpe, OT Florida



Quote:
Name: David Sharpe

School: Florida

Position fit: Tackle

Stats to know: Surrendered 32 pressures in 2015 and 15 pressures in 2016.

What he does best:

Great frame and length for a tackle.
Solid once he gets hands inside on defender and gets into the block.
Had flashes of big-time play and potential.
Good at covering up and stopping the rush of defensive ends when his body is in the correct position to block.
Took a step forward in pass protection in 2016.
Competed against top-end defensive talent

Biggest concern:

Too wide of a base at times and cannot change directions easily.
Has trouble getting his body in position to make blocks.
Bit stiff lower body and has trouble moving in space.
Susceptible to getting beat by speed rushers.
Struggled in the run game in his two years as starter.

Bottom line: Sharpe certainly passes the eye test, but he has a lot of work to do on the field. He has a great body frame and size for a tackle, and that will likely entice coaches and scouts. While he improved his game in 2016, he could probably use another season to refine his game and play up to his potential. On film you see glimpses of big-time play but you also see below-average tackle play and struggles to move in space at times. He is susceptible to giving up the edge on a speed rush as well as losing balance in run blocks. These inconsistencies in his performance make him purely a potential and upside prospect. In PFF’s grading system Sharpe was not productive and has a lot of work to do to progress into an eventual starter. However, a team may see his size and athleticism and believe they can turn him into a player.

Honestly I didn't know who he was. Apparently he denies the blind eye rumor as well. If he can maybe lose a few pounds and become more agile, develop under Tice and become our LT/RT of the future, then I have no problem with this pick.

Many are unhappy with the pick but also have no clue who he is, so take that with a grain of salt. Discuss...

3. Clearing up his vision

In early March, NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah reported that Sharpe was legally blind in his right eye. Sharpe refuted that at Florida’s Pro Day.

“It is not true,” Sharpe said. “The legally blind thing was wrong. It was completely wrong. I’m not sure where that even came from. I guess it was a rumor.”

He's just too big to play OT in the NFL.He'll get shredded on the outside by speed rushers.Dont really understand the Pick with KO and Gabe already locking down the Guard spots.

is it his left or right eye?

if it is his right eye why does that make him strickly a LT... on the left side he wouldnt be able to see the center, in a loud stadium guy would jump all the time.

I understand that you want to see whats coming off the edge, but i think on the right side with typically the slower power rusher would be fine? no?

I can see him getting a lot of snaps rotating him in on first down, 3rd and short, or goal line rushing plays. Guy is a mauler. Put him on any side of Osemele, Hudson and Jackson and you're getting yards. Especially with Lynch back there. Shoot, with this kind of mass on the line, who the hell is going to even be able to see the rushing midgets (Rashad/Washington) behind them?

As a RT or LT of the future, he's going to need to work on his movement. But at least he has something to come in and contribute right away.

A blind OT protecting our franchise QB's blindside.

That's not a very bright pick.

Upside pick at tackle looking long term. I like it.

He would never ever play T in the NFL.

This is depth + Gabe Jackson insurance if he leaves via Free Agency.

That's what people said about Alexander, I think this guy can play RT if he's given a few years to develop

He will get a couple of years to get his weight under control and work on his pass protection. Solid prospect to replace Penn when he retires.

Zero chance he ever plays LT. Slim chance he could play RT.

I think he could be a stud G if he develops nicely though.

Oakland Raiders: David Sharpe, OT, Florida: A Grade
I'm shocked David Sharpe has lasted this long. We were told by a team that they were going to consider him in the second round, but they made other upgrades to the offensive line. I had Sharpe in the third frame even though he tested poorly athletically. Sharpe could become a powerful run-blocker, perhaps emerging as Oakland's starting right tackle.

http://walterfootball.com/nfldraftgrades4.php

David Sharpe*, OT, Florida
Height: 6-6. Weight: 343. Arm: 35.38.
40 Time: 5.44.
Projected Round (2017): 2-3.
4/25/17: For the NFL, Sharpe is a better run blocker and needs to develop his pass protection. Sources believe Sharpe would be better off as a right tackle in the NFL. He should have returned for his senior year, dropped some weight, and worked on improving his fundamentals in pass coverage, but Sharpe decided to enter the 2017 NFL Draft. However, it could have been the right decision as some team sources believe that Sharpe won't get out of the second round. There are some concerns with Sharpe, including being blind in one eye.

Sharpe is a tough run blocker who was generally reliable in pass protection. After a good first half against Tennessee's Derek Barnett, Sharpe was whipped in the second half of the Volunteers' comeback win. He also had some problems with Florida State's Demarcus Walker and Alabama's edge rushers.

9/3/16: The Gators had a lot of injuries on their offensive line in 2015 and had to move players around. Sharpe was one of those players and saw action at both tackle positions. He was a good run blocker who flashed some pass-protection skills. Sharpe needs to improve his pass blocking, but he has upside to develop. He could be a right tackle candidate and also could move inside to guard for the next level.
