    Seems like a smart athletic player.

    Versatile LB, can play all the spots, book smart guy, athletic, hasn't reached his potential yet.

    First pick I can't buy into.

    All the downsides but size seem coachable. Getting a great athlete in the 4th that's coachable is not a bad pickup at all.

    Would have rather went for some OL depth with this pick.

    To me it means that Adibi has fallen out of favor and Sharpton will be the next in line .

    athletic guy, undersized like Dat Nguyen and Dexter Coakley, has a lot of potential adds depth (after diles) and speed to a position where, after meco and kinda cushing, we dont have much of it.

    We've had great success with former Hurricanes but Al Sharpton's nephew? The Texans locker room just got helluva more PC. Angry black men can't be too bad for our team. I hope he projects his anger on the field. I hope he came to play football, not bicker with the allegedly neo-nazi Cushing (facebook incident).

    I'm very surprised by it but I like the pick VERY much. He's a Smithiak 4th rounder so bank on him being a starter. Ha!

    Adds speed???? 4.81 40 time doesn't sound like speed to me. I'm not sure what they saw in this guy with all the OL's and DT's still on the board.

    Yeah i chuckled at that too but i doubt it'll change anything--if this Sharpton kid is as smart as people make him out to be he won't let that happen. Besides, he was a business major, he probably knows that putting politics into a locker room won't be smart for his future.

    Well they must see a hellofa player in him... LB is not a position of need, and several DBs and O-Line guys are still out there, so I guess they went best player available. Sounds like a good guy though... I´d prefered Rolle, Tennant, Franks or AOA...
