“Sweat was one of the stars of the Senior Bowl as he was excellent in the pass-rushing one-on-ones. He used his speed, length, and strength to consistently get the better of offensive linemen. After his strong performance in Mobile, Sweat could crack the top 20.
Sweat totaled 53 tackles, 14 for a loss, 11.5 sacks and one forced fumble in 2018. He was a dynamic pass-rusher over the course of the season. He dominated Auburn with a three-sack performance in the second half of the year. He was also dominant against Florida left tackle Martez Ivey and was excellent against Kansas State. Sweat had a solid game against Alabama.”
Montez Sweat is like an Octopus out there, and his quickness is amazing. He needs more technique however. He is mostly speed. The 49ers new additions to the coaching staff of Chris Kocurek and Kris Kiffin may like this kid though. I can honestly see Sweat as a 49er, especially if the 49ers do decide to trade down for added picks.
