Cardinals selected Texas A&M WR Ryan Swope with the No. 174 overall pick.
Swope (6-0, 205) secured 89 balls for 1,207 yards (13.6 YPR) and 11 touchdowns as a junior with Ryan Tannehill before his production took a slight step back with freshman Johnny Manziel at the controls. Although he doesn't play quite as fast, Swope's 4.34 forty and 1.47 ten-yard split earned him a ton of Combine buzz. Swope's negatives are mostly of the medical variety, as he suffered multiple concussions at A&M. But he's drawn some Eric Decker comparisons as a slot/Z receiver with versatility and terrific all-around athleticism. He could contribute down the line for a Cardinals offense that's rebuilding itself from the ground up. Sat, Apr 27, 2013 04:01:00 PM

Draft insider Tony Pauline writes Texas A&M WR Ryan Swope is "rising fast" into the middle part of the second-round.

Swope recently visited the Bears, Bills, and Chargers. "Swope is applauded for his dependability and the way he does the little things correctly," Pauline writes. "His speed at the combine (fastest official hand time of 4.28s from Indianapolis) caught a lot of people by surprise and most feel Swope, like Patton, can line-up as a second receiver in the NFL."

Texas A&M WRs Ryan Swope and Uzoma Nwachukwu worked out for the Jaguars on Friday.

The report comes from current Aggies right tackle Cedric Ogbuehi. The Jaguars are locked in with their top two receivers in Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon, and we would like to see the latter play more in the slot in a similar role to Michael Crabtree.
Sat, Mar 23, 2013 11:22:00 AM's Gil Brandt writes Texas A&M WR Ryan Swope could get drafted in the "fourth round or so."

Brandt added Oklahoma wide receiver Kenny Stills to that group. Swope has been become a popular favorite for many after his impressive combine performance, but he doesn't play as fast as he times and has medical issues. The latter refers to his history of concussions, which teams are paying more attention to than ever before.

NFL Network's Mike Mayock revealed that Texas A&M WR Ryan Swope has a history of medical issues, specifically multiple concussions.

Without the concussions, Mayock believes Swope is a second- or third-round prospect. He went on to add that Swope's straight-line speed was hidden due to Johnny Manziel's unorthodox style and that the Aggie receiver was used primarily in the slot. Finally, Mayock noted that if team's project Swope in that slot role, he is likely a third-round pick, but a team could take a chance on him in the second-round if they project him outside.

Draft insider Tony Pauline believes Texas A&M WR Ryan Swope could work his way into the second-round with an impressive Combine performance.

"Scouts estimated Swope runs in the mid 4.5's but I hear the reality is different," Pauline notes. "He's been running in the low 4.4's during training and has stood out in the jumps and agility drills... If Swope is able to turn some heads at the combine with his athleticism and speed then say hello second round." We expect the Aggie to project as a slot receiver.

A league source tells The Sideline View that Texas A&M WR Ryan Swope is currently carrying a fourth-round grade from NFL teams.

The same source likened Swope to Julian Edelman more than Wes Welker "in terms of play style." In November, SI draft analyst Tony Pauline suggested Swope could be drafted in the third round with a playing style similar to Broncos receiver Eric Decker's. Whereas Edelman and Welker are primarily slot receivers, Decker mostly plays on the outside. Swope is listed at 6-foot and 206 pounds.

SI's Tony Pauline believes that Texas A&M senior WR Ryan Swope's game is similar to Eric Decker's.

Pauline adds that Swope could go in the third-round, just as Decker did in 2010. The Aggie senior was not used as often at the start of the season, but he has recently displayed his reliable style that Ryan Tannehill coveted last season. Pauline warns that Swope "lacks the speed to be used as a vertical receiver."

Texas A&M senior WR Ryan Swope caught nine passes for 121 yards Saturday against Mississippi State.

Swope continued to find soft areas in coverage and utilize consistent run after catch ability. The senior was a reliable target for Ryan Tannehill last season and should continue that in the NFL as a third day selection.

After suffering a head injury in Saturday's game against Louisiana Tech, Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin said the team will take it slow with senior WR Ryan Swope.

"We're going to err on the side of safety," Sumlin said. "We take that very seriously." He added that Swope is officially listed as day-to-day. The Aggies have not officially ruled the injury a concussion, but most head injuries can be concluded as one. Swope has had a down year, production wise, due to Texas A&M's new Air-raid offense.

Texas A&M receiver Ryan Swope has decided to return to College Station for his senior season.

Swope says he is anxious to play under new coach Kevin Sumlin. It's hard to imagine Swope improving much over this season's exceptional performance when he set A&M single-season marks with 89 receptions and 1,207 receiving yards. He also had a school-record 4 receiving touchdowns against Baylor on Oct. 15 and had 11 TDs on the year.

Swope’s school-record 4 TD receptions tripled his scoring output for the season. He also set a personal best with 206 yards and the junior's 11 catches represent the second-highest total of his career.
