Quinn Sharp states case to be rare kicker drafted

Representatives from 21 NFL teams gathered at the pro day held at Oklahoma State on March 12, where 16 players went through a workout held outdoors on FieldTurf in 45-degree temperatures.

Joseph Randle, RB (6-foot-0, 202 pounds) — Randle ran the 40-yard dash three times, finishing in 4.54, 4.60 and 4.63 seconds. He had a 34-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-10 broad jump. His short shuttle time was 4.25 seconds and he did the three-cone drill in 6.97 seconds. Randle caught the ball out of the backfield alright, but a splint on his right thumb made it difficult.

Quinn Sharp, K (6-1, 189) — Sharp displayed a strong leg during an up-and-down pro day performance. He was booting his kickoffs into the end zone, but missed some field goals during his workout (he was 1-for-2 from 55 yards out). He did, however, cap it off with a 60-yarder. Sharp is the second-rated kicker in the 2013 NFL Draft. While three kickers were selected in the 2012 NFL Draft, only three had been selected in the three drafts prior.

Both Randle and Sharp were invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.
