Pos: 
Tall, athletic left tackle with big upside. Bends his knees, blocks with terrific pad level and consistently gets leverage on opponents. Sets with a wide base, stays square and keeps the defender in front of him. Explosive and makes great use of angles and body positioning to seal defenders from the action. Fires off the snap into blocks, quickly gets out to the second level and keeps his feet moving. Slides out in pass protection and covers a good amount of area. Agile and displays the ability to adjust and redirect to defenders.
Neg: 
Lacks a dominant base and does not get much movement as a run blocker. More of a finesse blocker than a mauler.
Analysis: 
Scharping was a terrific player for Northern Illinois and is a tall, athletic blocker who can be used at tackle or as a zone-blocking guard. He needs to improve his strength, but he has big upside and could potentially develop into a starter on Sundays.
