PLAYERS
J.R. Sweezy
Round 7, Pick 225
Position: DT
Class:  Sr
HT: 6'4"
WT: 293 lbs.
40 Time: 4.98
Conference: ACC
Biography: Two-year starter who totaled 20 tackles/4 tackles for loss/2 sacks in nine games last season. Missed four games with a foot injury. Junior totals included 50/11.5/5.5.

Positives: Intense and competitive defender who keeps coming until the whistle blows. Gets leverage on opponents, quick off the snap and keeps his feet driving up the field. Works his hands throughout the action, fluid changing direction and plays with good pad level.

Negatives: Lacks size and gets engulfed by blockers. Average pursuit speed.

Analysis: Sweezy flashed ability the past two years at North Carolina State and offers potential as a three-technique lineman at the next level. He could develop into an every-down player if he fills out his frame and improves his playing strength.

Projection: FA
