The Titans’ second-round pick is driven to silence post-draft critics.

Second-round pick of the Tennessee Titans T’Vondre Sweat listened to all the arguments made against the Titans selecting him as the 38th overall choice in the 2024 NFL Draft.

 

For this reason, Sweat was working out at the University of Texas alongside former teammates Xavier Worthy, Jonathan Brooks, and Jordan Whittington just three days after being picked.

 

The 6-foot-4, 362-pound defender, who many scouts believe will struggle to maintain his weight and is still coping with the aftermath from his arrest for suspected drunk driving weeks ago, was singled out by several analysts for the Titans’ high draft selection.

Sweat said in a video that was uploaded on Instagram on Monday that he was working extra hard to disprove all of his skeptics.

 

Sweat declared, “I have to prove people wrong, which is why I’m out here working.” “I’m being stereotyped by everyone around here. You know what, though? I’m going to keep being a big dog and working quietly on my project.

 

Draft analysts Chris Trapasso of CBS Sports, Matt Verderame of SI.com, and Brent Sobleski of Bleacher Report all expressed disapproval of the Titans’ choice of Sweat.

“In his five years with the Longhorns, Sweat recorded five sacks on the field. Although he is gifted, several questions remain, according to Verderame.

 

Trapasso said, “Not as good against the run or double teams as his size indicates.” Most likely an NFL two-down guy. Although Tennessee did want extra bulk up front, this is too soon for a player with limitations.

 

Nevertheless, Titans general manager Ran Carthon said on 104.5 The Zone on Monday that he had multiple texts and phone calls from other general managers informing him that he selected a player they also had their eye on in Round 2, despite all the criticism the Sweat selection received from so-called draft experts.
