Pos: 
Nice-sized tight end with a well-rounded game. Explosive at the point, blocks with proper knee bend and leverage and quickly gets off the snap. Tough, slugs it out at the line of scrimmage and gets results as a blocker. Fluid into pass routes, fires off the snap and catches the ball well. Comes back to the ball to make himself an available target, uses his frame to shield away defenders and displays good timing. Consistent hands catcher who makes the difficult reception in contorted positions and takes a pounding but holds onto the throw.
Neg: 
Struggles to finish blocks. Doesn’t consistently split the seam or get downfield.
Analysis: 
Sweeney was consistent in all areas of the game at Boston College and projects well as a second or third tight end at the next level. Though he may not be the downfield threat teams want at the position these days, his well-rounded game will be an asset on the depth chart.
