Ryan Swope – Sleeper WR Dan Leberfeld

Texas A&M wide receiver Ryan Swope ran a 4.34 at the combine, wowing the the scouts.

“I loved to see that,” Mike Mayock (NFL Network) said. “I didn’t expect him to run the time he ran. I mentioned on the air, his Alabama game kind of woke me up to him a little bit, and Johnny [Manziel] helped that of course; got him the ball a lot on a couple of secondary scrambles. But Swope ran in the 4.3’s, he had 11 catches against Alabama.

“When you see a guy you don’t expect to run mid-4.3’s, it forces you to go back and watch tape. That’s what I’m going to do, spend some more time trying to figure that kid out.

“I was perusing Twitter this afternoon when I noticed that Texas A&M wide receiver Ryan Swope (who is in a heated competition with Denard Robinson for the NCAA 14 video game cover) ran a 4.34 in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. That’s tied for the second-best time this year, and it’s ahead of Robinson, who is widely regarded as freakishly fast.

“We all know that the 40 isn’t the tell-all number when it comes to speed, and that it means little in forecasting NFL success. But we do know that if a guy runs a 4.34, he is fast. So, Ryan Swope is fast. End of story, right?”
