Report: FSU junior DE Josh Sweat skipping bowl, declaring for 2018 NFL Draft

According to Marchant.com reporter Gene Williams, Florida State junior defensive end Josh Sweat is skipping the Independence Bowl vs. Southern Miss and declaring for the 2018 NFL Draft.

This season, Sweat is third on the Seminoles in tackles (56), No. 1 in tackles for loss (12.5) and sacks (5.5), and tied for first with six quarterback hurries.

Sweat was a five-star recruit that started 32 games at Florida State. During his career, Sweat amassed 4.5 sacks and 138 tackles.

Many preseason mock drafts forecasted that Sweat had the potential to go in the first round.

Yet, speculation about his surgically-repaired knee and inconsistent play now have Sweat forecasted as a mid-round selection this April.
