Sweezy has 'looked awesome' during Bucs OTAs
- According to Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter, G J.R Sweezy has “looked awesome” during OTAs. Sweezy missed the entire 2016 season after signing a free-agent contract with the Bucs. He will likely be the starter at right guard.
- 2015 was the last time Sweezy played. During that season, he ranked 55th in overall grade at 55.0.
- Sweezy struggled in pass protection in 2015, earning a pass-block grade of 50.7. His pass-block efficiency of 95.5 ranked 41st out of 62 guards who spent at least 355 snaps in pass protection. He allowed 32 total pressures on 556 pass-block snaps.
- Sweezy was a big part of the Seahawks Super Bowl run in 2013-2014. That season he earned career-high marks in overall grade (68.0) and run-block grade (76.5) and helped set the tone for their impressive running game.
