12. Montez Sweat, EDGE, Mississippi State
- Height: 6’6″
- Weight: 241
- Class: Senior
Now we are getting into some truly elite prospects for the 2019 NFL Draft. Montez Sweat is a top edge defender in the class right now. Sweat is a taller, longer edge rusher with a similar build to that of Arden Key and Leonard Floyd. There is plenty to like with Sweat despite the comparisons. Sweat possesses good bend around the edge for his stature and turns the corner well when he positions his hands to do so. He has a very underrated inside arm move that throws offensive linemen off balance. Sweat also does well with his hand usage to win around the edge and has good quickness along the line.
Despite all those good traits, he can still work on getting low and having good pad level along with his hand placement. Even with that, Sweat is in the elite category of rushers for the 2019 draft.
11. Trey Adams, OT, Washington
- Height: 6’8″
- Weight: 327
- Class: Senior
If you’re looking for an athletic tackle prospect, look no further than Washington Huskies tackle Trey Adams. The athleticism is certainly there despite a huge frame. Adams moves so well in many different ways. For one, he has a very smooth kick slide that looks like one of a veteran tackle in the NFL and is very helpful against speed rushers. He also moves very well in space, working to the second level and getting out to blockers on the second level and the boundary. What also shows up on tape is his quickness to mirror and stay in front of rushers on the edge, a very savvy trait.
The concern for Adams is mostly centered on his health. He missed a ton of time last season and is now nursing a back injury in 2018, which is something to watch closely.
