Georgia senior CB Damian Swann "could stay with any receiver in coverage drills" at the Shrine Game, observed the Sporting News' Chris Kouffman.
"Swann was easily one of the smartest and most communicative players in the Bulldogs' secondary," Kouffman wrote. "Georgia moved him from deep safety to slot corner to the boundary, depending on the defensive play call and the opposing offense’s alignment. Swann was able to handle all of this movement easily while keeping constant communication with his teammates, often calling out offensive tendencies based on alignment and leverage. This trait showed up again in Shrine Game practices as his route recognition improved during the week." The 5-foot-11, 180-pound Swann has long been a playmaker. In 2013, he forced eight (four interceptions, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries). This year, he posted 52 total tackles, three interceptions and three pass break-ups. Jan 19 - 1:26 AM

Georgia senior CB Damian Swann "showed the foot quickness and high level of competitiveness during Shrine Game practices that will give him a shot in the NFL," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"He tends to play overanxious at times, but his click-and-close ability to drive and blow up plays is a terrific asset for the position," Brugler wrote. "Swann doesn't have an ideal body type for the position with lean-muscled bulk, but he's tough and feisty to work through blocks and make wideouts uncomfortable. After playing a similar role as Brandon Boykin at Georgia, look for Swann to compete for a nickel position at the next level." The 5-foot-11, 180-pound Swann recorded four interceptions, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries in 2013, and 52 total tackles, three interceptions and three pass break-ups in 2014.

Georgia junior DB Damian Swann will return to school for his senior season.

"A guy like me, I want to be one of those first-round or first-two-rounds guys, and to do that, you have to put it on tape," Swann said. "I struggled a little bit. It's a part of the game." That kind of self-awareness is a positive, and the entire Georgia defense could improve with an extra year of experience.

Georgia plans to use junior DB Damian Swann in nickel packages while Josh Harvey-Clemons misses time.

Swann is expected to play the "Star" role in the Bulldogs' 4-2-5 defense. "That’s what I played last year, so if I was asked to go over there that wouldn't be a problem," Swann said. The school lost plenty of talent to the draft last April, but they have been known to restock.
