Strong Points

Naturally huge man with length and girth. Has strength. When he stays low he is able to get a push in the run game.

Weak Points

At 350+ he is way too heavy. Lacks good movement traits. Slow with slow feet. Not a natural bender, which causes him to lean and bend at the waist. Doesn't have the lateral agility and recovery quickness to stay with opponents vs. counter moves. More of a pusher than explosive drive blocker.

The Way We See It

Sharpe is a junior entering the draft. He should have stayed in school. He has been a two-year starter at left tackle. While he has natural strength, he is not powerful or explosive and has very average movement skills. Struggles with wide speed and counter moves. Because he lacks good lateral agility, he has a tendency to bend at the waist to stay with opponent. Has to move inside to guard to have a chance and also needs to lose at least 20 pounds. At a lower weight, he has a chance as his athleticism will improve. Question is, with his natural size, is there a diamond under all that extra padding?
