Redshirt senior defensive tackle T'Vondre Sweat is one of two Texas football players competing in the Reese's Senior Bowl in Mobile, AL, this week. He is joined by redshirt senior offensive tackle Christian Jones as the two Texas Exes competing in the Senior Bowl to highlight their skills and athleticism for the 2024 NFL Draft.

Sweat and Jones have both looked impressive in their own right in Senior Bowl practice/drills this week. In particular, Sweat has stood out in one-on-one drills in the trenches and with his physical attributes.

He even showed off the speed and hands when he got caught a pass in the end zone during Senior Bowl practice. This is the second time that Sweat has shown off the hands catching passes in the end zone in the last few months.

Sweat also caught a touchdown pass for Texas in the 49-21 Big 12 Championship Game win over the Oklahoma State Cowboys in early December.

Sweat, the highest-graded defensive tackle in the FBS in 2023, got the best of multiple offensive line prospects for the NFL Draft from Power Five schools during lineman drills this week at the Senior Bowl.

Among the offensive linemen Sweat has faced before that he went up against at the Senior Bowl this week was former TCU interior offensive lineman Brandon Coleman. He quickly overpowered Coleman in this rep.

He also showed off a quick swim move to get past former Texas A&M interior offensive lineman Layden Robinson.

Easily the most impressive rep of this week in Senior Bowl practice for Sweat was this one against former Arkansas interior offensive lineman Beaux Limmer. Sweat got tremendous leverage on Limmer on this rep and completely destroyed him in the backfield.

Sweat reportedly didn't weigh in at the Senior Bowl. His weight was not listed on the official Senior Bowl roster this week.

On the Texas roster, Sweat was listed at 6-foot-4 and 362 pounds.

Sweat is widely projected as an early-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Mel Kiper Jr. listed Sweat as the top defensive tackle on his big board for the 2024 draft.
