There are a few things you want from your sentences. First, you want some sentence variety — try to write sentences of different lengths and structure. Second, you want your sentences to relate to each other. A paper is not a collection of sentences that could be rearranged into any order. A paragraph full of sentences that each seem to exist in their own little universe is a bad paragraph. Think of each sentence as a rung in a ladder: the ladder of your reader’s thought, the ladder of your argument.
