Montez Sweat transferred from Michigan State University and found a home at Mississippi State. He had academic troubles and was kicked off of the teams for drug use, said former teammate Craig Evans who blamed the “weed situation” according to Detroit Free Press writer, Dave Birkett. Sweat is an elite athlete and tested very well at the Combine and his pro day.
AT 6-6, 260, and with 4.41 speed Sweat looks like pro-bowler Julius Peppers. He has Good bend, athleticism, and production and should hold up in a traditional 4-3 type of defense or possibly a three-man front where he serves as an outside linebacker.
Sweat has not always stayed in the game on all downs but has served as more of a third-down specialist. That hasn’t stopped him from putting up good numbers, though.
The Bills are another team that could use their position to move around and acquire a pick or two. Three of the next four teams are the prime candidates to select a quarterback. Sweat is still in the group of top-tier athletes available and that pool is almost depleted.
