We are just under two weeks away from the 2019 NFL Draft. Workouts and private tours are coming to an end and the Detroit Lions front-office, scouting and coaching staff are finalizing the big picture.
It is still too early to know for sure what will happen to the Titans this weekend. The team itself does not yet know which players will be available in 8th place.
The Mississippi State EDGE Montez Sweat has been part of the team since the Senior Bowl, where he proved to be Mobile's best player after also drawing attention to the scales.
Overall, there are many other options at # 8, and I feel that some within the organization will strongly promote others. But Sweat is the epitome of what Bob Quinn and Matt Patricia have publicly declared wanting to: reach out to athletes with positional versatility and game-creating potential. Sweat's extraordinary sports tests combine its high productivity with Mississippi State.
