  • Sweat has a good chance to beat out Ryan Anderson for a starting job, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. Sweat fell to 26th overall in the 2019 NFL Draft after a medical exam revealed a heart condition, but subsequent reports suggested he was misdiagnosed. Whatever the case, he left no doubt about his first-rate athleticism at the combine, where he ran a 4.41 40-yard dash after checking in at 6-foot-5, 260 pounds. Anderson was a solid prospect in his own right a few years back, but the 2017 second-round pick is nowhere near Sweat's level from a physical standpoint and has just two sacks on 356 defensive snaps through 27 NFL games. Anderson's decision to skip voluntary OTAs left the rookie unopposed for first-team work at outside linebacker throughout most of the offseason program.

  • Redskins' Montez Sweat: Lands in Washington
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Redskins selected Sweat in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 26th overall. The Mississippi State product was a polarizing player throughout the pre-draft process. He was projected as high as a top-10 pick before sliding to the late first round after a combine medical exam uncovered a pre-existing minor heart condition. However, Washington's medical staff is clearly convinced that it won't be an issue and now the franchise has a potential premier pass rusher. Sweat is a remarkable athlete; he ran the fastest 40-yard dash of any edge defender at this year's combine with a blistering 4.41 at 6-foot-5 and 260 pounds. He projects to see a situational role at outside linebacker, competing with Ryan Anderson for playing time. When given the chance, Sweat should develop into a starter.
