NFL Prospect T’Vondre Sweat Arrested for DWI

NFL prospect T’Vondre Sweat, a former Texas Longhorns defensive tackle, was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Austin, Texas. Sweat was booked into the Travis County Jail on Sunday afternoon, facing a Class B misdemeanor charge. The arrest was made by the Austin Police.

Sweat, accompanied by his attorney, left the jail later in the day without making any comments to KXAN News, NBC’s local affiliate. He had his face covered with a towel or shirt as he exited the facility. The date for his court appearance regarding the matter is yet to be determined.

The impact of this incident on Sweat’s stock for the upcoming NFL draft remains uncertain, as neither Sweat nor his attorney addressed the question. ESPN ranks him as the third-best defensive tackle prospect, while CBS Sports lists him as the 87th overall prospect in the draft. It is expected that he will be selected in the second or third round.

Sweat had an impressive season at Texas, earning Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year honors, along with being named an All-American and Outland Trophy winner. During his final season, he recorded 45 tackles, eight tackles for loss, two sacks, four pass breakups, and one blocked kick. Sweat also scored a touchdown in the Big 12 Championship Game against Oklahoma. Notably, he is the younger brother of Eagles defensive end Josh Sweat.
