NASHVILLE (AP) - Montez Sweat's wait has ended thanks to the Washington Redskins trading up with Indianapolis to grab the Mississippi State pass rusher at No. 26.
Sweat had been rated as a potential top-10 pick before reports of a heart condition found during the NFL combine in February. He originally had committed to attend the NFL draft in Nashville before deciding last weekend to celebrate with his family in Stone Mountain, Georgia.
Indianapolis received Washington's second-round pick at No. 46 overall and a second-round pick in 2020 in the deal.
General manager Chris Ballard got a pair of starters in the second round last year with linebacker Darius Leonard and right tackle Braden Smith.
The Oakland Raiders used their third and final pick in the first round on defense, taking safety Johnathan Abram from Mississippi State. They used two of those selections on defense after grabbing defensive end Clelin Ferrell of Clemson fourth overall.
The Los Angeles Chargers took Notre Dame defensive tackle Jerry Tillery at No. 28, making him the ninth defensive lineman taken in the first round.
