Montez Sweat Stats

Sweat was overshadowed at the defensive end position by the likes of Nick Bosa and Clelin Ferrell for most of the early pre-draft process, but he has since rocketed up many draft board thanks to a fantastic showing at the 2019 Senior Bowl


Sweat was a force to be reckoned with in 2018 and was arguably the most-feared pass rusher in the SEC. The Mississippi State product recorded 12 sacks and added 14.5 tackles for loss in his final season with the Bulldogs. 


Despite his taller frame, the 245-pound defensive end is quick off the edge and capable of getting leverage on opposing offensive tackles. He's still raw, however, and profiles as a pass-rushing outside linebacker until he can add some extra muscle to lift him over the 250-pound threshold.

Montez Sweat Draft Predictions

Green Bay Packers (No. 12), Atlanta Falcons (No. 14)


Sweat is a dangerous pass rusher and has the potential to develop into one of the league's elite edge players with some time at the professional level. That being said, the Packers could draft Sweat at No. 12 overall, especially if they let Clay Matthews walk during free agency. Atlanta, who picks just two spots after the Packers, could add a pass-rushing talent like Sweat if the Falcons part ways with Vic Beasley this offseason.
