Was officially a 4.37! Dang, he is slowly becoming the WR I would want if we don't get DeAndre Hopkins.

Yeah, he is opening some eyes.

I have really liked what Marquess Wilson has done today. He ran a 4.51 officially and looked like one of the more comfortable receivers in the gauntlet. Most of those guys let the ball come into their body or just looked akward catching the ball. Wilson actually looked comfortable catching the ball with his hands away from his body. Vernon from Duke looked the best catching the ball but he isn't really big or fast at all. I think Woods looks really good as well.

Least likely looking player ever to run under 4.4?

Image

He reminds me a lot of Steve Largent. :)

Having another Steve Largent would suck.

Keep that dude away from the Pats. He reminded me of a faster Wes Welker everytime I watched A&M this year.

Damn 4.34 official. Same as Tavon Austin. Marquise Goodwin had the highest with 4.27 fast. WOW

Wonder if he even makes out out of the 2nd now? Kearly was really high on him before, I wonder how much his time bumps him compared to some of the other prospects.

A bigger Steve Largent is a good comparison for Swope. Both are fast, savvy, creative, tough, and highly competitive. Largent was pretty underrated when he came out as well, although I'm not sure if Swope can stay under the radar any longer after doing this.

While watching the Combine this morning, what really stood out to me about Swope, other than his 40, was how sharp his cut was on one route where the WRs were instructed to run to the cone and then cut 90 degrees outside.

There was no other WR that made the cut anywhere near as sharp as Swope. He's got great hips and flexibility. The kid's a keeper imo.

He'd be a significant upgrade over Baldwin in the slot.

I only have the info from NFL.com to go by from the combine, but it's crazy how there are like 4-5 stories on the front page with titles like 'Blazing a Trail', 'A day at the Races', 'Track Speed' & none of them involve this guy? Is it cause he's white or is that a tad harsh I just don't get it, dude beat Austin in most of the drills but does not get a mention about a 'Top Combine Performer'

Yeah, I'm not exactly expecting Swope to be on John Schneider's interview list at the combine, if you catch my drift.

With that speed why would you put him in the slot anyway? As far as upgrade over Baldwin, I would have to wait and see, after all Baldwin had his teeth knocked out and came back and played, had what looked like a broken Clavical or dislocated, whatever it was ugly and missed one game and came back and played. Not up to his first year, but then again he wasn't asked to be the only receiver that could catch a ball last year either.

Healthy I hope we see the complete Baldwin again coming this season and that he can limit the severe injuries.

Swope is a very complete WR and can play anywhere. Doesn't have to be slot, but I think he'd be really, really good there.

It seems to me that more and more, WRs are not being locked into pigeonholes as "1", "2", or "slot" receivers. They all move around, most go in motion from time to time. But slot is where one might expect a new guy to start out while he learns the totality of the playbook, especially on a team like ours, where the WR corps is not that weak. Sure, we could use some help, but it's not like our WRs are tottering on the edge of disaster.

If Swope were the guy, and he sounds like he'd fit nicely, we would still expect (or at least I would) a bit of a learning curve ala what Tate went through. Perhaps not as long, but he'll probably still take a season or two to really "get" it.

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 Wes Welker.

If the Hawks or the Packers don't grab him, the Patriots will.

Just watched some of his tape, and I love how competitive and fiery he is! Intangibles are a huge thing for me, and it looks like he's definitely got them!

Saw that this morning, and my first thought was: Damn, kearly's got a good eye. My second thought was then, Damn, there's just about no way we steal him in the 4th anymore.

Im not really that impressed with him. If we could take him in the 4th, then ya....I'd be ok with it. I just don't see room to grow.

He should go the route of his QB and trademark the name "Opie Football" as that would be a geat nickname for him.

Which means the Hawks gotta draft him before the Whiners do.

People are projecting us to pick Swope in the third just like they pegged us to pick Irwin last year in the third. Last year I kept thinking, if Irwin is such a stud, why will he last until the third? This year I'm asking, how can Swope make it past the second round? I'd love to see us get Swope, and I'll be amazed if it's in the third round.

Pretty sure the Patriots are going to draft him in the 2nd round. They have zero receivers, and the dude's white. He's perfect for Boston.

Seriously, man, what is your beef with Kearly? Are you upset that he can manage an original thought or something? Its like you look for opportunities to make stupid comments needling him.

Im not sure what you are talking about. I apologize if you feel I have beef with another poster. Just posting what I remember.....others liked Swope a ton as well.....that was just the first name that came to mind. Guess I could have just said "Guys" :34853_doh:

Appreciate the sentiment.

Sizzle just loves being a hater and a bubble popper; I'm sure it's nothing personal with me. That said, hating is like painting: proceed without thought or caution and you will stain your clothes. Not all of us can be the velvet hammer that Scottemojo is. (FWIW, I enjoy Sizzle's posts, and his ribbing bothers me a lot less than you might think. I think his courage to speak his mind can be a good thing more often that not. Also, he's gone against the grain to agree with me in the past. Maybe I am being too nice, but to me I sense a difference between Sizzle and Hazbro from FGs. I'm starting to respect Hazbro bit by bit, but he is a prick, no doubt about it. I don't get that sense at all from Sizzle. He seems like a decent guy, he just can't defy his hater nature :) ).

I don't blame Ryan Swope for retiring....I wouldn't want to play for the Cards either. It's where WRs not named Larry Fitzgerald go to obscurity. Just ask Early Doucet.
