The Oakland Raiders drafted OL David Sharpe in the 4th round

Raiders add depth to their offensive line with 129th overall pick

The Oakland Raiders possessed one of the best offensive lines last year and now they're adding depth with their fourth round pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.

General manager Reggie McKenzie used the 129th-overall pick to select offensive lineman David Sharpe, who spent his college career with the University of Florida. At Florida, he played left tackle, blocking Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio's son Luke's blindside. 

Sharpe is a big man, standing at 6-foot-6, 343 pounds and uses his massive frame to keep defenders off of the quarterback. His size and muscle is his biggest strength, but has the tendency to be stiff. 

Sharpe will have time to learn from the offensive line in front of him, including veteran tackle Donald Penn and outstanding offensive line coach Mike Tice.
