I was hoping you didn't ask..........evidently, the FO seemingly didn't.
As a freshman red shirt in 2005 he played on special teams for three games before getting hurt and receiving a medical hardship because of concerns over his knee and ankle. His 2006 red shirt year was relatively unremarkable. He struggled with lower limb injuries all through the 2007 season and looked gimpy when he returned to the lineup. Unlike 2007, Sharpton stayed surprisingly healthy all year in 2008. But then again he was dealing with nagging lower extremity injuries, going on to miss the final two games of the 2009 season with a left knee injury. After all draft profiles reporting concern over his size as relates to durability as an NFL MLB, the Texans brain trust drafted him the next year.
