Scouting Report/Player Notes

Swope is one of the best wide receivers in Texas A&M history. He was the favorite target of Ryan Tannehill, and while this year he’s taken a bit of a backseast for freshman QB Johnny Manziel, he is still out there making plays for the Aggies. Swope’s success as a junior is well-documented, catching 89 passes for 1,207 yards and 11 touchdowns. Swope’s sure hands and deceptive quickness have paved the way for Jordy Nelson comparisons, though he’s not quite as productive as Nelson was at Kansas State. Swope is a good, reliable route runner who plays with toughness and has an edge to his game. I think if he has a good finish to his senior season, there is a chance he could be a day two selection. He will benefit greatly from the success guys like Wes Welker and Jordy Nelson have had as underrated receivers coming out of college who are deceptively athletic and can make plays in the slot or on the outside. Perhaps the better overall game comparison is that of Jordy Nelson, but certainly Swope looks like a player who can make an impact at the NFL level.
