06/16/2012 - Top-five Georgia Tech prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 4. CB Rod Sweeting (6-0, 185)...The more experienced cornerback on the Georgia Tech depth chart, Sweeting leads the team with 39 career games under his belt. The senior is one of the top leaders on the team and is only one of three ACC defensive backs who defended at least 12 passes last season. Sweeting was one of the top recruits out Georgia four years ago, choosing in-state Georgia Tech over Ohio State and Auburn. He didn't start as a freshman or sophomore, but he played in every game as a valuable member of the secondary. Sweeting started all 13 games last season at cornerback, earning All-ACC Honorable Mention honors as he tied for the team-lead with three interceptions. He has good length for the position, but needs to add more muscle and bulk to his lean frame to match up better at the next level. Sweeting plays fast with smooth body control and natural instincts to read/react in a flash while staying under control. He currently projects as a mid-round draft pick, but is definitely in the conversation of being the top senior cornerback in the conference. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
