Draft Scout Andrew Sweat News
03/14/12 - Four years ago, Trinity High School graduate Andrew Sweat arrived on the Ohio State campus with a plan. He wanted to play football, get his degree and possibly follow up a strong career with the Buckeyes with one in the NFL. Sweat completed his football career at Ohio State with a solid senior season, leading the Buckeyes in tackles from his linebacker position with 72 and earning second-team All-Big Ten honors, despite missing two games with a concussion. Later this spring, he will complete his schooling when the three-time all-academic Big Ten selection will graduate June 1 with a double major in accounting and finance. As for the third part of his checklist, playing in the NFL, he has taken some positive steps toward making that happen in recent weeks. The 6-1, 238-pound Sweat had an outstanding performance at the Ohio State pro day last week in front of coaches and scouts from all 32 NFL teams, looking fluid in position drills and being timed between 4.55 and 4.65 seconds in the 40-yard dash. "It was pretty nerve-wracking. I talked with between 12 and 16 teams," Sweat said. "I spent an hour with the Falcons. A lot of teams had me take personality tests." The Ohio State workout was particularly important for Sweat, because he suffered a concussion and also had an elbow injury at the end of the season that kept him from being invited to any of the college all-star games or the NFL combine. Sweat is healthy now and has been working out at D-1 Sports Training in suburban Columbus, Ohio, with some Buckeyes teammates and assorted NFL players, including linebacker Bobby Carpenter and wide receiver Lance Moore. - F.
