40-yard dash: 4.48 seconds (78th)

Broad: 121 inches (69th)

College Career

A 5-star HS recruit, Swift paid dividends for the Bulldogs across 3 steady seasons.

Nick Chubb and Sony Michel headlined the 2017 backfield, yet Swift — as a true freshman — impressed with 7.6 YPC. He also led Georgia RBs in catches (17).

Year 2 produced a timeshare with Elijah Holyfield, a fullback-like bruiser who saw only 4 fewer attempts than Swift. (Holyfield went undrafted in the 2019 draft.) Then last fall, Swift set a career-high with 220 touches — despite a late-season shoulder bruise that reduced his role significantly. He handled only 6 touches over the final 2 games.

Now, it's important to recognize that Georgia’s O-line performed at a high level throughout Swift’s career. For example, in 2019, Pro Football Focus graded Georgia's O-line as the top run-blocking unit in the country. Still, as we’ll see in the next section, Swift -- removed from his blocking -- is undoubtably a highly skilled runner. It’s no wonder he’s compared to Dalvin Cook (for his zone running ability) and Alvin Kamara (for his receiving talent) by long-time film guru Greg Cosell.

Watch Swift enough, and you'll see some flashy runs. Overall, though, he's more of a consistent, all-around asset with no glaring weakness.

At just shy of 5'9, leg drive is one box he checks. He mixes in a nice cutback with this first run.

Here's another example of how he effectively utilizes a solid frame.

Swift didn't perform agility drills at the Combine, but the tape shows he likely would have performed impressively. Here we see his quick feet on a cutback dash, culminating in a bold (foolish?) leap. As you can see up top, Swift was good -- not great -- in explosion drills at the Combine.

Long speed is typically overrated for RBs. But it's certainly nice to see Swift run under a 4.50 forty time -- and have that speed show up on game day. His slight hesitation in the run below also allowed his blockers to get positioned -- a nod to Swift's advanced feel for the game.

Swift not only has NFL-ready tools as a runner -- he offers exciting receiving upside, too. Per Pro Football Focus, Swift dropped only 3 of 76 catchable passes for his career. Here's one he caught in tight coverage after peeling off his initial route. Next, we see some more of his sneaky power.

I wasn't able to view much of a sample on Swift's pass blocking efficiency, but I've gathered no cause for concern. At his size, however, it'll be worth tracking his rookie-year progress.

Fantasy Potential

Former Bulldogs Nick Chubb, Todd Gurley and Sony Michel have each found early success in the NFL. Swift is poised to join the trend. (And, fortunately, he doesn’t enter the league with serious medical red flags like the 3 guys above did.)

Nope. We’re talking about a clean, (relatively) safe prospect here. A cerebral runner with elite open-field ability — and advanced receiving chops. Add it up, and this 21-year-old profiles as a late Round 1 or early Round 2 pick.

That type of investment boosts Swift’s floor and figures to solidify his immediate role. A loaded WR class lowers Swift's rookie draft status slightly, but he’s still a Round 1 pick to get excited about.
