Draft Rewind 2010 – Darryl Sharpton – Houston Texans

What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about DARRYL SHARPTON: Miami, 5113 236 4.83.  Started 31 games over four years. Undersized linebacker that is a fringe athlete. Flashed quickness in reactions. When he “sees it” he shows good quicks and the ability to close in pursuit. Takes a little hop step in his read at times which is a wasted movement. Inconsistent with angles in pursuit. Has shown good speed to chase.  Struggles in man coverage as he occasionally gets lost on a cut. Quick to break and drive on the ball. Shows well reacting at times to the receiver and the ball. Quick as a blitzer. Covered up by blockers to get a free run to ball carrier. Physical downhill linebacker that is quick to disengage and get into pursuit lanes. Sideline to sideline player. Will sprint across formation and make play if clean. Tackling is inconsistent as is ability to stay under control, break down, and wrap up. Will contribute on special teams coverage. Has 262 career tackles, 24 1/2 for loss, 2 1/2 sacks, and 10 passes broken up. OSR:11/15. Fifth/sixth round. (A-32 1/2, H-9 7/8, BP-24, SS-4.42).
