Ryan Swope
 
I really liked what I saw from this kid whenever I got the chance to watch A&M play this year. Walter has him going somewhere in round 2-4. Anybody else interested if he is there at the top of round 3. I think he can be a Jordy Nelson type player for us.

Not really as he seems to be more of a possession receiver. The Chiefs need someone with speed to be a deep threat.

He was a track stud in high school and has some good open field speed, but yeah he isn't really much of a deep threat.. Plays a little small, but he has great instincts. Id take him over McCluster, Wiley.

Yeah, he's really nothing like Jordy Nelson.

He's probably closer to...don't shoot me...Wes Welker.

He's a better option than McCluster or Wiley but don't really see it as a need.

He's a lot bigger then Welker which is why I tried to avoid that comparison amongst other reasons. He just seemed like a tough kid that shined in big games.

Like Rudy said, he plays "small".

He's definitely bigger than Welker but when you watch him play, he moves like a much smaller guy.

I like Swope a lot. I just think we have bigger needs.

FYI, reports out of the Senior Bowl are that Swope is the toughest WR on the field. Hasn't impressed with his catching yet but apparently his run blocking is superb.

I know what it is that reminds me of Welker - he takes really short, choppy steps when he's mid-route. He looks like a fullback at times. :)

How big is he? Nelson is like 6-3 205 right?

Rambozo 01-24-2013 09:16 AM

There are a lot of Chiefs fans I know who really like Swope. Some have us taking him as high as the second round but, I don't know about that. He seems like a guy we will probably miss on because of where we pick. However, he's definately a baller.

6'1 205 and Nelson is about 6'3 215. A little closer then the 5'8 Welker.


Maybe Hines Ward would be a better comparable.

Swope is like 6' even.

Rudy would know for sure, I think he's an A&M fan.

Forget about the height. I'm talking about how they play - how they run routes, how they make cuts, how they run with the ball in their hands.

Swope reminds me of a RB in WR clothing.

Nelson isn't that, at all.

Yeah, probably a poor comparison. Maybe Hines Ward would be a little better.

Wilson and Swope on the team would upgrade the toughness quite a bit which this team could use.
