Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TAJAE SHARPE: Massachusetts, 6020 194 4.50. Four-year starter from Piscataway, NJ. Led the nation in receptions per game (9.3) and total receptions (111) during the regular season. Was named to the second team Walter Camp All-America team and was a two-time All-MAC first-team honoree. Was injured early in the week while in Mobile for the Senior Bowl but used his body well against defenders on his hip and versus smaller defenders. Competitive. Impressed at the East-West Shrine practices with a good blend of hands, smooth route running, and athleticism. A natural hand catcher. One negative factor is his lack of hand size. Good body control to separate from defensive backs. Attacks the ball. Has a slender build that needs more core strength. Struggles to get off the line versus press coverage. Needs to add a more physical aspect to his game. Sharpe spent most of his time (48%) on the right side, 21.9% on the left, and 29.5% in the slot. Leaves the Minutemen program as the career leader in receptions and yards. Has a quick burst and easy change of direction which gets him open initially and has consistent ball skills to go with it. Will compete for a fourth or fifth receiver spot. The splendid splinter may receive criticism for his small hand size that was measured anywhere from 7 7/8" to 8 3/8". One area where there is no controversy is his lack of dropped passes. He ran 290 routes, was targeted 34.5% of the time, and he only had 3% drop rate, one of the best in the country. 2015 stats: 111-1319, 11.8 ypr, 5 TD. OSR:25/ 42. Fifth/sixth round. (A-32 1/4, H-8 3/8, VJ-33.5, SS-DNP).
