Montez Sweat

Kansas State has a very good offensive line. It’s probably one of the best in the nation due to the level of experience and all of the chemistry that those players have developed over the years from playing together. But Mississippi State’s defensive line certainly made its mark against the Wildcats yesterday.

A lot of that is because of Montez Sweat.

Sweat is one of the best pass rushers in the entire country. He’s certainly one of the best in the Southeastern Conference. He’s a great athlete that will outwork opponents and continue to add pressure on their backfields.

That’s what he did on Saturday. 3 tackles, 1 sack, and two tackles for loss. It’s not his best stat line ever. Sweat has had notably better performances. However, this was against a great opposing offensive line and he was likely the target of much of Kansas State’s scouting report on the defensive line.

Sweat had a solid game.
