Tajaé Sharpe is the Most Underrated Prospect in the 2016 NFL Draft

Many people have criticized the lack of great depth or overall talent in the 2016 WR class. While this year’s batch of pass catchers does not quite rival the unbelievable groups of the past two years, this class certainly has their own gems. Amongst, the most unknown and promising prospects, is Tajaé Sharpe out of the University of Massachusetts. The UMASS product stands at 6-2 ft and weighs about 194 lbs. At the recent NFL Scouting Combine, Sharpe ran a 40 yard dash in 4.55 seconds, and clocked in with only 8 inch hands. However, Sharpe has garnered significant buzz in the NFL community with his stellar performances on the on-field drills. At both the East-West Shrine Game, and NFL Combine, Sharpe looked incredibly smooth in his route-running and possessed a firm set of hands. Sharpe’s hands were unbelievably stellar and his overall comfort level on the field was extremely impressive due to the unfamiliar and nerve-wrecking settings of All-Star events. In college, Sharpe was very productive, with his best year coming as a Senior when he made 111 catches for over 1,300 yards and 5 tds. Pair a great body of work, tremendous size, and great performances in important NFL Draft prep events, and you have a very interesting prospect. Tajaé Sharpe should be selected between rounds 2-6, and prove to be a significant contributor at some point in his NFL career.
