Glenn Sharpe was a big time NFL prospect before his knee injury...........Last year Sharpe had a ok year by collecting 44 tackles,2 ints, and 14 pass deflections........ I think that he is a practice squad guy whom may suprise

This is Sharpe draft profile

The Good: Sharpe is a lean athlete who entered Miami as a highly heralded recruit before a series of knee injuries cost him long periods of playing time. He has adequate speed and quickness along with the ball instincts and agility to match up in man coverage. He lacks the top recovery speed to rank with the highly rated prospects, but he has learned the finer points of the position.

The Bad: He is only a marginal run support defender and needs to prove he will tackle at the line of scrimmage and in the secondary to win a role in the nickel package. He is not a physical defender on the corner. He needs development in bump-and-run coverage.

Outlook: He is an aggressive cover man with a definite “make it” grade, but he needs to settle into a defense and prove he can show up weekly. He is a good-second day gamble, but is clearly a boom-or-bust prospect. He warrants only a late pick because of his medical questions.

Sounds like he can fit in here if he makes the team. Not sure if he will. But, it says he is an aggressive cover, which we are using that scheme. Says he isn't that great at run support, well with us adding Grady and our LB corps, I'm not sure we need a ton of help for run support from a #4 or 5 CB.
