    Of all the pass-rushers in NFL history for Montez Sweat to choose, he tabbed a Miami Dolphins legend as his pro comparable.

    “I watch a lot of pass-rushers,” Sweat said at the NFL scouting combine. “I think old-time pass-rushers like Jason Taylor has a lot of my skill set.
    He’s long, he’s fast. I watch him a lot.”

    Most NFL teams will be looking for pass-rush help in the upcoming NFL Draft. Perhaps no team needs another Jason Taylor more than the Dolphins.

    No, he can't. Sweat strikes me as a one trick pony = speed rush. That may work for half a season but eventually the o-linemen in NFL will catch on to this guys act. Also he doesn't help much in run support. With his off field problems, is he going to be more or less well behave with millions of dollars in his pocket? There are red flags all over the place with this guy. Let him be someone else problem.

    I don't know, he's high cut but also has short area quicks, good vertical movement. Strong dude, from what I've seen he looks pretty good in run support, but he might struggle against OT monsters in the NFL like Jason Taylor did sometimes. High center of gravity, tall and rangy but strong. I'd take him at #13, I think he's an impact player.

    I find him exciting as heck to watch, he is like a wrecking ball of butcher knives nearly every play. Especially when compared to Gary who does virtually nothing all game.

    Great get off, speed, bend he makes offensive tackles look just plain stupid.

    Now the downsides; off the field questions, possible health questions and I haven’t really seen the ability to play in space if he is to be used in a 3-4.

    I would certainly be ok with him at #13 but I’m not sure he will fit whatever they want to run. I suspect they will want more versatility.

    the SEC no way he makes to 13
