Don’t Sweat It Part II - Redskins Rookie Montez Sweat Quietly Having a Solid Season

When the Redskins moved back into round one of the 2019 NFL Draft to select Mississippi State pass rusher Montez Sweat, in what was a very good EDGE class, Skins fans rejoiced. It was just a few months before this selection that Sweat tore up the scouting combine, posting a 4.41 40 yard dash, a 36 inch vertical, a 4.29 short shuttle and 21 reps on the bench press. The 6’6” 265 pound athletic freak was projected by many to be a top 10 pick, but slid due to some medical concerns.

The hype was REAL during training camp and the preseason, but when the rookie didn’t light it up out of the gate, the fan’s patience wore thin quickly.
