I'm watching him vs Barnett and he has better feet than I expected for a man his size.

Yeah he's just inconsistent.

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!

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.
He's the same size as Austin Howard and they could have him lose 15 to 20 pounds by year 2 when he realistically has a chance to play.

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.
Zero chance repeating this more than once will make it true.

Sharpe is longer and has better feet than both Denver and Vidal.

Also did well against Charles Harris

Our great offensive line is the foundation to this team's success. The more talent and depth we have there, the better.

Agreed. I projected in my first mock we'd take a G in the 4th for depth purposes and Jackson insurance.

Took a look at this behemoth. For 340+ he's pretty lean.

Can't complain. Maybe him and Vadal can compete or fill in for RT. Depth is important too

For those that are not a fan of David Sharpe in the 4th round, who else would you pick instead? I think by now everybody knows I'm a huge fan of Ryan Switzer, but I was quite surprised he went in the 4th round after checking in at 5'8.5" with short length.

He fits into exactly the type of offensive linemen that Reggie likes. I had him and Moton as "Reggie's guys." He's big, nasty, physical, and will punch you in the mouth. I really wanted Taylor Moton, but getting Sharpe is fine. I seen people grading him as a 3rd round prospect and seen him in many mock drafts in the 3rd round so getting him in the 4th round was good value. Get him in shape and let Mike Tice work his magic.

This makes more sense.


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 Rioís son, Luke, was the Gatorsí 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.
