Round 7, Pick 228: Tommy Sweeney
With their last pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills selected Tommy Sweeney out of Boston College.
During his time as an Eagle, the Ramsey, N.j., native appeared in 50 games, recording 1,281 yards and 10 touchdowns. in his 2018 season, Sweeney earned an All-ACC First Team nomination and the New England Football Writers nominated him to the All-New England Team.
When Sweeney arrived in Buffalo, he found himself a very small fish in a very large pond as the Bills who had just drafted Knox, had three other tight ends on their roster. In addition to Kroft and Smith, Jason Croom was also on the Bills roster which gave Sweeney very little chance at playing time.
When he did get his playing time, Sweeney recorded eight receptions for 114 yards which for someone in such a competitive roster battle, is not all that bad.
It is unclear how the Bills tight end situation is going to shake up come the 2020 NFL season, but it looks like Dawson Knox has been appointed the stater which does not give Sweeney much of an opportunity to better his situation.
In hindsight, this pick could have used on an offensive lineman just as an insurance policy for Mitch Morse, given his concussion history.
