Bio: 
Three-year starter who posted 56 tackles (12.5 for loss) and a team-high 5.5 sacks with three pass breakups as a junior. Made 41 tackles (11.5 for loss) and added seven sacks in 2016. Started nine games as a true freshman and tallied 41 tackles (five for loss) and two sacks.
Pos: 
Incredibly athletic pass rusher with big-time potential. Sized well and plays with excellent pad level and leverage. Fluid, rarely off his feet and works his hands throughout the action. Moves with speed in every direction, shows quickness when asked to twist and stunt and easily alters his angle of attack. Remains disciplined with assignments and does more than pin his ears back and rush up the field. Plays with balance and body control.
Neg: 
Easily taken from the action by a single opponent. Marginal strength in his lower body. Has a history of knee injuries which date back to his high-school days.
Analysis: 
Sweat is a tremendous athlete who flashed the ability to take over games and disrupt the action. He needs to get bigger and stronger and finish the product, but more than anything else, Sweat must pass physicals in the lead-up to the draft.
