This guy's an interesting prospect as well. He's like Wes Welker v2.0, very quick, great at getting yards after the catch, can put him in the slot to create all sorts of matchup issues for defenses. If Kyle Williams doesn't come back fully healthy, Swope could be a replacement for him. The one thing I've consistently heard and seen written about Swope is that he's "game-ready." He's highly intelligent, a very skilled route-runner and considered ready to contribute early on. He's drawn comparisons to Danny Amendola for his toughness, dude has been fearless going across the middle and has some great, reliable hands. His size isn't great, but at 6 feet, its not terrible either and pretty decent for a slot WR.
More impressively, he's gotten it done and found ways to make plays against high-level competition such as Alabama who he kept fighting to make plays all game and went over 100 yards against their hard-nosed defense.
What you'd be getting with Swope is a very hard-working player, a very intelligent player and a guy with a great set of hands and tremendous quickness to get separation off the line. I would not be unhappy with this selection at all. he seems like a Harbaugh type of player. It may not always look pretty, but he'll work his ass to get it done and make big plays.
