Errm. your question is mixed sweepers.
Your description of the question is mixed walls o_O
Mixed Sweepers:
Kinda depends on your definition of sweeper but I'm going to do it as in Mixed attackers
First off;
Salamence @ Life Orb
Ability: Moxie
EVs: 64 Atk / 192 SpA / 252 Spe
Naive nature (+Spe, -SpD)
- Draco Meteor
- Outrage
- Earthquake
- Fire Blast
Salamence... a Pokemon once deemed in the Ubers tier. Not anymore and this gives him the perfect chance to wreck ou :P Draco Meteor does massive damage as does Outrage and Earthquake/Fire Blast provide coverage and take care of pesky things like Heatran and Ferrothorn

Dragonite @ Life Orb
Ability : Multiscale
EVs: 76 Atk / 252 SpA / 180 Spe
Mild Nature
-Hurricane
-Thunder
-Aqua Tail
-Roost
This guy is a mixed rain attacker. I run him on my rain team and hs godly, wrecks any team unprepared, and even some prepared ones since they largely expect physical D-Dance dragonite with lum bery.

Infernape @ Life Orb
Ability: Iron Fist
EVs: 64 Atk / 252 SpA / 192 Spe
Naive Nature
-Close Combat
-Fire Blast
-HP Ice
-Grass Knot
Mixed attacker Infernape. So cool :P. Close Combat gets the Iron Fist boost, while Infernape's good SpA stat lets it abuse the rest for excellent coverage and damage

Hydreigon @ Expert Belt
Ability : Levitate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Mild Nature
-Draco Meteor
-Fire Blast
-Superpower
-Roost/Dark Pulse
Time to get wrecked with mixed Hydreigon :P I use this guy and his great. Expert Belt helps bluff a choice set, so nothing on the opponent's team is safe. Roost or Dark Pulse is your choice really, survivability or even more coverage & power

Kingdra @ Life Orb
Ability : Swift Swim
Nature: Naughty
EVs: 252 Atk / 24 SAtk / 232 Spe
-Dragon Dance
-Waterfall
-Outrage
-Hydro Pump
Ermygerd Kingdra. Nuff said lol. Though he isn't as good without rain, and since drizzle is banned with swift swim in ou =/. But he still has his merits - after a Dragon Dance some players may decide to bring in a defensive wall and attempt to stall/cripple Kingdra - they aren't going to like a Hydro Pump into their face provided it is at least nuetral

Tyranitar @ Focus Sash
Ability : Sand Stream
EVs: 94 SpA/ 152 Atk / 252 Spe
Hasty Nature
-Fire Blast
-Ice Beam
-Stealth Rock
-Crunch
Tyranitar mixed attacker lead ;o. Excellent attack stat, decent SpA, so becomes quite viable. Fire Blast and Ice Beam help get rid of some usual counters (Ferrothorn hai >:D) Stealth rocks to set up and Crunch just hits ghost/psychic types for a ton of damage

Landorus @ Life Orb
Ability : Sand Force
EVs:252 Atk / 4 SAtk / 252 Spe
Naive Nature
-Rock Polish
-Hidden Power [Ice]
-Stone Edge
-Earthquake
Rock Polish to boost speed. This guy hits hard, kills and HP Ice is used to get rid of some of his counters - hello gliscor and hippowdon. :P

Might add some more later :P Hope I helped so far. And yes, most mixed attackers are actually dragon types (at least the good ones) since Dragon types often have the best overall attacking stats, but some exceptions like Jirachi who have all rounded stats work

These are a couple of Pokemon that are somewhat less famous or utilized mixed sweepers, and among some of my favorites.

Metagross@life orb
Ability: clear body
Nature: naughty
Evs: 232 atk 252 sp atk 24 spd
-Meteor Mash
-Psychic/Grass Knot
-Hidden Power Fire
-Hammer Arm/Ice Punch/Earthquake

This guy is a good mixed tank, thanks to great offensive stats and defensive typing. Talk about four moveslot syndrome though. Ou tier

Houndoom@Life Orb
Ability: Flash Fire
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd
Naive Nature
- Fire Blast
- Pursuit
- Sucker Punch
- Hidden Power [Grass]

Frail but dangerous, Houndoom is quite a nice mixed attacker in UU. Pursuit and Suckerpunch make your opponent tread carefully, while fire blast provides some more muscle power. Hp grass for coverage.

Kyurem-B@life orb
Ability: Teravolt
Nature: Hasty
Evs: 200 atk 56 sp atk 252 spd
-Ice Beam
-Outrage/Dragon Claw
-Fusion Bolt
-Focus Blast/Earth power/ Hidden power fire

None other than the rejected Uber, base 170 atk and 120 sp atk in Ou? That's right. Take advantage of these ridiculous offensive stats to dish out pain to the Ou tier. Just remember to compensate for Kyurem's rather lackluster speed and defensive typing.

Sometimes you don't even need a Mixed attacker on your team. Choiced Pokemon can Trick a wall to help eliminate it. And at times you can even rely on sheer force to bust through walls with things like Choice Band Terrakion, Choice Band Haxorus, and Choice Specs Tornadus.

But here are some great Mixed attackers:

Jirachi @Expert Belt
Serene Grace
152 Atk, 204 SpA, 152 Spe
Ivs: 31/31/31/31/31/30
Naive (+Spe, -SpDef)
-Iron Head
-Fire Punch
-Hidden Power Ice
-Thunderbolt

Hydreigon @Life Orb
Levitate
104 Atk, 240 SpA, 164 Spe
Hasty (+Spe, -Def) / Naive (+Spe, -SpDef)
-Draco Meteor
-Fire Blast
-Earthquake
-Outrage

Salamence @Life Orb
Intimidate
100 Atk, 176 SpA, 232 Spe
Rash (+SpA, -SpDef) / Naive (+Spe, -SpDef)
-Draco Meteor
-Fire Blast
-Brick Break / Earthquake
-Roost

You can also post an RMT to help us find what would fit on your team easier.

Infernape @ Life Orb / Expert Belt
Trait: Iron Fist
EVs: 252 Spd / 180 Atk / 76 SpA
Naive / Hasty Nature

  • Overheat
  • Close Combat
  • Thunder Punch
  • U-Turn / Mach Punch

Overheat is a powerful Fire type STAB and can be used with no drawback due to it being the only special attack in the set. Close Combat is STAB and gets good coverage. Thunder Punch is for Flying and Water types. U-Turn is to make a quick escape and Mach Punch is priority.

Salamence @ Life Orb
Trait: Moxie / Intimidate
EVs: 64 Atk / 192 SpA / 252 Spe
Naive / Hasty Nature

  • Draco Meteor
  • Outrage
  • Fire Blast
  • Earthquake

Draco Meteor and Outrage are dual Dragon STABs and no wall who only works on one side is safe. Fire Blast takes care of Steel types such as Forretress, Skarmory, and Ferrothorn. Earthquake is for doing more damage against Jirachi and hitting .

Those are my favorites. Hope I helped! :)

I'm just gonna go ahead and post a Mixed Hydreigon set that I like (really, guys? No U-turn?).

Hydreigon @ Expert Belt/Life Orb
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 200 Atk / 56 SpA / 252 Spe
Naive Nature (+Spe, -SpD)
- Draco Meteor
- Fire Blast/Flamethrower
- Superpower
- U-turn

Personally, this is one of my favorite Pokemon to use as it is so easy to take something down using it. It can break right through walls and checks to a common Hydreigon get punched right in the face. Heatran switch into your Draco Meteor? Boom. Superpower. Now lets get onto the set itself.

Hydreigon can either utilize a Life Orb to quickly rack up damage (on itself and its opponents),
while an Expert Belt can bluff a Choice set. The ability Levitate, which is your only option, gives your Hydreigon an immunity to Ground along with the Psychic imunity. The given EVs allow Hydreigon and Nature allow Hydreigon to run marathons and hit hard physically and specially. Draco Meteor is so goddamn powerful and Hydreigon doesn't even worry much about the SpA drop thanks to it carrying two physical moves. Fire Blast or Flamethrower. You either get power or accuracy and better PP respectively. These moves will still really mess up Pokemon like Ferrothorn among others. Superpower does the same as Draco Meteor, but instead lowers the Atk and Def by one stage and is generally less powerful. U-turn over EQ because you're already hitting too many things super-effectively, but now you have much more momentum riding in your team and now you can beat Celebi, no problemo.

Pros:
- Its a mixed sweeper! It hits on the both sides of the physical and special spectrum.
- Moves with bad side effects like Draco Meteor and Superpower are almost shrugged off.
- One of the best checks around for Celebi.

Cons:
- Even though it is above average, its attack requires a good investment to meet its special.
- Weaker defenses combined with a nature that will reduce its SpD or Def along with a Life Orb (if you choose that item) means Hydreigon won't be around forever.
- It's dark type weakness gives it a fatal weakness to very common fighting type moves.
