Green Bay Packers: Ten mid-round options in 2016 NFL Draft
WR Tajae Sharpe, Massachusetts
A lot of attention is on first round prospects such as Laquon Treadwell, Corey Coleman and Josh Doctson. I would love to see Coleman in Green Bay, although I understand the chances of it happening are slim. But that’s not to say the Packers should avoid the wide receiver position later on. Far from it.
On day two or three, Massachusetts wideout Tajae Sharpe could come into play. Sharpe has good height at 6-foot-2 and is an excellent route-runner. He has the hands and athleticism to become a key piece to the offensive puzzle.
A key for Sharpe is to fill out his frame; he is currently 194 pounds. Bulking up and adding strength might take a bit of time and could hurt his year one production, but he’s the kind of player that could grow into an increased role in year two or three. With depth at the position, Sharpe wouldn’t be asked to do too much as a rookie.
The potential is certainly there, and he’s a player that would be a great fit in Green Bay. Sharpe can line up in the slot to create some size mismatches, but also has the height and athleticism to play outside the numbers.
