Tanardo Sharps

RB | (5-8, 195, 4.6) | TEMPLE
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Carried 25 times for 184 yards with one touchdown, caught seven passes for 65 yards and returned 16 kickoffs for 311 yards as a true freshman. Started every game in 2000 and rushed 201-1,038-10, caught 16-107 and returned 20 kickoffs for 397 yards. Missed the Navy game in '01 with a pulled groin but started the other 10 games and rushed 151-771-1, caught 7-65 and returned kickoffs 5-131. Played in 12 games in '02, carrying 311-1,276-8 and catching 27-205-1.

Positives: Productive and durable college back with good vision and balance. Runs low and keeps legs driving upon contact.

Negatives: Lacks size and speed. Is not explosive or sudden. Is basically an outlet receiver who would be dwarfed and hold no advantage over NFL linebackers and safeties as a pass catcher out of the backfield.

Summary: Could catch a team's eye as a free agent, but isn't likely to be a priority.
