Pos: 
Outstanding college pass rusher with a large upside. Instinctive, resilient and constantly around the action. Displays a good head for the ball, excellent movement skills and fluid movement ability down the line of scrimmage in pursuit of the action. Rarely off his feet, makes plays in space and shows the ability to recover from blocks and make plays on the ball carrier. Explosive off the snap, fast up the field and plays with proper lean. Plays with balance and shows quickness and speed off the edge. Forces the action and disrupts quarterbacks’ rhythm. Tested at near historic levels during the combine.
Neg: 
Easily knocked from his angle of attack by the initial block. Possesses a tall, thin build. Easily outpositioned or boxed from the action by a single blocker. Off-field issues may raise red flags.
Analysis: 
Sweat was a tremendous college pass rusher who also gave effort in all other areas of the game. He must physically mature and fill out his frame but comes with a great upside as a defensive end in a four-man line or a pass rusher who can also stand over tackle.
