2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
D’Andre Swift, RB, Georgia

Career Snapshot
First-year starter who earned First Team All-SEC honors, rushed 196 times for 1,218 yards and seven touchdowns and caught 24 passes for 216 yards and one score as a junior in 2019. Started five games and earned Second Team All-SEC honors, carried 163 times for 1,049 yards and 10 touchdowns and made 32 receptions for 297 yards and three TDs as a sophomore.

Positives
Creative ball carrier with the ability to run to daylight and pick up big yardage from the line of scrimmage. Displays outstanding vision, instincts, and wherewithal. Runs with good lean, effectively follows blocks and finds the open lanes. Consistently run north and south, builds up a lot of momentum and loses no speed when he cuts back against the grain and changes direction.

Beats defenders into the open field, works runs and does not go down without a fight. Runs with balance, body control and a great combination of speed and quickness. Possesses the speed and agility necessary to turn the perimeter. Explosive, makes defenders miss and a multi-cut ball carrier who finds ways to pick up yardage Runs terrific routes as a pass catcher, displays naturally soft hands and shows himself to be a lethal downfield threat. Stays square and gives effort as a blocker.

Negatives
Doesn’t move the pile. Not effective as a short-yardage back. Lacks next-level breakaway speed. Combine testing numbers were nothing special for a potential first-round back.

Analysis
Swift possesses the football skills and athletic ability to be a feature runner at the next level and should be the first ball carrier selected in the draft. He’s well-rounded in all facets of the position and should make an impact as a rookie in the NFL.
