Mississippi State DE Montez Sweat joined Dukes & Bell, to talk about the NFL Combine, the draft tomorrow night and what’s his biggest attribute.

Sweat told the guys he feels like he was overlooked before the combine.

 “I think I was overlooked even though I was a sack leader in the SEC.” Sweat said “Of course I was a combine warrior, but the tape speaks for itself.”

Montez said his biggest attribute is his effort.

 “My biggest attribute is my effort.” Sweat said “I’m never going to give up on a play, my pursuit of the ball will always be the same, my effort is always going to be there.”

When asked what he needs to work on.

“I can work on all aspects of my game.” Sweat said “From pass rushing to playing against the run, you can always add stuff to your game, and I think I can still get better in all aspects of my game.”

Montez talked about what it would mean to play for his hometown team the Falcons.

 “That would be crazy to play for the home town.” Sweat said “I’m never even been in the new stadium, I grew up watching them play in the Georgia Dome, it would be crazy playing for them.”

Sweat said he feels like he was overlooked coming out of college.

 “That’s another thing that happened when I came out of college.” Sweat said “I was overlooked, I would have loved to have come to the university of Georgia and get sacks but I was definitely overlooked.”
