The impression I have is Swope is already a couple of years ahead of Tate in route-running simply because of his god-given talents in his lower body.
Watch the position drills from yesterday and watch the crispness of his cuts and his acceleration coming out of those cuts.
Tate will never achieve what Swope is already capable of in that regard.
And besides having blazing (4.34) straight-line speed, Swope appears to have fast-twitch quickness as well.
Used properly, he's a faster, bigger version of Russ Welker.
If the Hawks or the Packers don't grab him, the Patriots will.
im assuming u mean wes welker?!? never heard of russ welker lol
but def see where u are coming from! i can see patriots picking him up jus for that reason alone! be interesting to see where he goes in the coming months
