Draft Scout Travis Swanson News
05/12/14 - It is no coincidence that Lions offensive line coach Jeremiah Washburn would campaign for Mayhew to draft Travis Swanson, a center-guard from Arkansas. Washburn also played guard and center at Arkansas. "Yeah, I played guard and center at Arkansas and my last game in college I played against Shaun Rodgers and Casey Hampton (from Texas)," Washburn said. "I walked off the field and told my wife I am not good enough to play in the NFL and I didn't. Absolutely the SEC is a litmus test for offensive linemen and Travis played against the best." - The Sports Xchange

Blocked for the first season in school history with a 3,000-yard passer and a 1,000-yard rusher in 2010, and two seasons with a 1,000-yard rusher. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
