Betting Pick: D’Andre Swift -155

There is one Running Back in this upcoming draft that, without a doubt, lives up to his name. Swift is one of the most agile and balanced running backs in the draft. He has the vision, power, and determination to be an every-down back in the NFL.

Swift is similar in style to NFL running backs, Dalvin Cook, and Josh Jacobs. Not the biggest RB’s in the league but can move across the field with ease.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Swift has turned into one of the best backs heading into the draft. Georgia has a proven track record of producing excellent backs. Recent Bulldog graduates include Todd Gurley, Nick Chubb, and Sony Michel.

Collegiate Stats

Swift had an excellent start as a member of the Bulldogs. He made the SEC All-Freshman team and was Georgia’s Co-Offensive Newcomer of the Year as a Freshman, finishing 2017 with 81 carries for 618 rushing yards with four total touchdowns. It only got better; Swift led the team during his sophomore season with 1,049 rushing yards and 13 total touchdowns. His final year with the Bulldogs was a cherry on top; he earned first-team All-SEC honors with 1,218 rushing yards and eight total touchdowns.

Draft Position

Swift can easily be an every-down back and change the offense of any NFL team. Without a doubt, he will be drafted in the first round and should get some interest from the following organizations: Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks, Baltimore Ravens, and Kansas City Chiefs.

With a new Quarterback headed to Miami, either Herbert or Tua, it makes sense to add another superstar in the backfield and support a young Quarterback with a dynamic weapon like Swift.
