The accolades for Tajae Sharpe are never ending. He was a star in the preseason. Sharpe continued his success in week 1 catching 7 passes for 76 yards on 11 targets. The chemistry between him and Marcus Mariota is extremely strong already.

Pro Football Focus graded Tajae as the 5th best rookie in week 1:

It has been a long time since the Titans have had a rookie wide receiver that has looked this polished. Sharpe is the perfect guy to anchor a passing game. They will still need to add a guy who is actually a threat down the field in the future, but things are sure looking up from a weapons perspective.

Lindsey pointed out in the links this morning that Sharpe is nominated for Pepsi rookie of the week. You should do your duty as a Titans fan and head over and vote for him this morning.
