Former FSU DE Burns turning heads with NFL Combine workout

Tuesday, 05 Mar, 2019

The former Kentucky linebacker is also working out at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis this week. The Oxford, Mississippi native followed that up with the second fastest 40-yard dash at 4.33 seconds only behind Ohio State's Parris Campbell with 4.31 seconds.

"Sweat's former team enjoyed seeing his first "#FromStatetoSundays" steps when compared with three mobile National Football League quarterbacks.

Twelve months a year, the Colts' college scouting staff crisscrosses the country mining talent, finding flaws and getting the goods on players at schools big and small. Arguably the NFL Draft's strongest position group, the defensive line showed all of that and more with their performance on Sunday.

14 pounds heavier than he was listed last season at FSU - the All-ACC performer clocked an unofficial 4.56 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

Lets start with Sweat, who ran arguably the best 40-yard dash of the week.

Only one running back - Oklahoma State's Justice Hill - recorded a mark faster than Sweat's.

That speed, paired with Sweat's size, is just unreal for a defensive lineman.

Along with a staring contest employed by the Seattle Seahawks in the most recent combines, the camp is notorious for unusual questions and antics by teams looking for future players over the years. Michigan's Rashan Gary ran an official 4.58-second 40 at 277 pounds. Both of those numbers were among the best of the day for defensive ends.
