“If Ballard didn’t like Sweat...”
Just because we didn’t draft him, doesn’t mean we didn’t like him. Remember, Sweat was taken 26th... do you think the other 25 teams were all unimpressed by Sweat?
Maybe the teams believed the medical report about his heart problem. That’s why he lasted so long. Odds are high Sweat was removed from our draft board by the team doctors and the owner. Odds are Ballard couldn’t have drafted him if he wanted. That’s typically how these things work...
