Sweat is an absolute freak of an athlete. The 6-foot-6 260-pound edge rusher ran a 4.41 in the 40-yard dash during the NFL combine. This sort of athletic ability should allow the Giants to move him all around the field in order to gain favorable matchups. With last year’s sack lead Olivier Vernon now in Cleveland, it also makes sense for New York to find a guy capable of getting after the quarterback.
7. Jacksonville Jaguars: OT Jawaan Taylor (Florida)

In virtually every mock draft leading up to April, the Jaguars have been associated with Taylor. Not only is he a local product, but Taylor is the draft’s top offensive linemen. The mammoth tackle will likely set up shop on the right side of the line. With the amount of money given to Nick Foles this offseason, Jacksonville surely needs to protect its investment.
