OL David Sharpe declares for NFL Draft

Spread the love

Florida offensive tackle David Sharpe has declared for the NFL Draft. He’s the second Gator to do so today, along with Quincy Wilson.

Sharpe is more of a surprise than Wilson. He’s a great run blocker, with an explosive first step and lands a nasty initial punch. He was also a solid pass blocker at UF, but there are a few fundamentals he needs to improve on in order to really make an impact. As it stands right now, Sharpe is probably a third round pick.

But Sharpe leaves a tremendous void at the blind side tackle spot, and so his departure is noticeably more damaging than Wilson’s. We know that the Gators at least have a stable of young and hungry defensive backs, but now there’s a huge problem at the most important spot on the line. The best bet to replace Sharpe is Kavaris Harkless, and his lack of experience provides a major area of concern this offseason.

If he gets a little better in pass protection, he could be a star at the NFL level. It just felt like he could have used another year, is all. Of course, I wish Sharpe the best and nothing but the best in moving on.

And I truly do think some team will find a gem in him.

One thought on “OL David Sharpe declares for NFL Draft

  1. Harkless is not taking over the left tackle spot. That would be Martez Ivey, especially since tackle is his natural position.
