BIOGRAPHY: Played in nine games as a senior totaling 13/1/3. Junior-year totals included 44/2/14 when he started 12 games. Sat on the sidelines for most of the previous three years after tearing ligaments in both of his knees.
POSITIVES: Athletic corner with outstanding size/speed numbers and a long injury history. Engages opponents off the snap, quick transitioning off the line, and will mix it up throughout routes. Plays with a good degree of force, works to get involved, and displays good hands for the pick. Nicely adjusts and contorts to defend the throw. Locates the pass in the air and gets vertical to defend the throw.
NEGATIVES: Looked average last season. Displays marginal playing speed, quickness, and timing.
ANALYSIS: Sharpe is a physically gifted corner whose development was slowed by two devastating knee injuries. His injury history will send up red flags and may prevent anyone from drafting him.
