Sharockman graduated from the University of Pittsburgh, where he starred as a cornerback. He played 11 seasons in the National Football League, all with the Minnesota Vikings (1961–1972). He started in Super Bowl IV.
In 1970, Sharockman enjoyed a banner day against the Dallas Cowboys, blocking a punt and recovering it for a touchdown, and also returning an intercepted Craig Morton pass for another touchdown in the Vikings' 54-13 annihilation of the eventual NFC champions.
