Round 3 (85): T'Vondre Sweat, DT, Texas

The Packers have done an excellent job of rebuilding their defensive line. They moved on from Dean Lowry and Jarran Reed in the offseason, a bold decision that put a lot of faith in T.J. Slaton and Devonte Wyatt and the ability to find contributors in the draft.

Green Bay has done that. Slaton is having an excellent season, particularly against the run. Wyatt has improved in year two, and rookie Karl Brooks has made an impact as a pass rusher with two sacks. One area the Packers need more help in is stopping the run. The run defense has improved of late, but there's still work to do.

Enter T'Vondre Sweat out of Texas.

Sweat is 6-foot-4, 362 pounds, and would provide some depth at nose tackle. He is dominant against the run and often takes on double teams. His play in the middle of the line would make life easier for Kenny Clark and Devonte Wyatt to make plays at defensive end.

Sweat's biggest impact comes against the run, and he might not play on every passing down, but that's fine. He is an outstanding run-stopper, which is exactly what the Packers need. Green Bay has a talented, young defensive line. Sweat would add even more depth and help the run defense improve immediately.
