To close out their 2019 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have drafted Boston College tight end Tommy Sweeney. This is the second tight end the Buffalo Bills have drafted this year. Sweeney joins Mississippi’s Dawson Knox, and veterans Tyler Kroft and Jason Croom.
While Knox is a dynamic athlete with all-around potential, Sweeney is considered to have a lower ceiling. The 6’4” 251-lb tight end ran a 4.83 forty yard dash at the NFL Combine. Sweeney started three seasons for the Eagles, and caught 32 passes for 348 yards and three touchdowns in 2018.
Sweeney has reliable hands and a good feel for navigating underneath zone coverage. His blocking technique is solid, and he has experience as an inline tight end from his college team.
It looks like the Bills have a prototype for the tight ends on their roster: 6’4” 250-lb types who can catch and block in equal measure. Sweeney’s potential isn’t as high as Knox’s, but he projects as a player who could compete to back up Tyler Kroft and Knox on the roster.
Do you approve of the Bills’ selection of TE Tommy Sweeney?
