Draft Scout Travis Swanson News
08/17/14 - C Travis Swanson. The third-round pick once again led all offensive players with 42 snaps Friday. He played some snaps at left guard before moving to center, and he didn't have any snap issues like he did in the first preseason game when a low shotgun snap led to a lost fumble.
07/31/14 - C Travis Swanson, this year's third-round pick, earned first-team reps at left guard and center when Rob Sims and Dominic Raiola, respectively, took breathers. The Lions hope Swanson can be the top reserve at any interior position.
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
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Lions' picks: Round 3/76 - Travis Swanson, C/G, 6-5, 312, Arkansas...Ultimately, the Lions believe this is the eventual replacement for Dominic Raiola, who is 35. In the meantime, he will work at guard and center and be the extra interior lineman dressing out on game day. He made 50 straight starts at Arkansas and has played in pro style offenses under Bobby Petrino, John L. Smith and Bret Bielema. - The Sports Xchange
02/20/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Scout Pre-Combine Top 64 Prospects: 52. Travis Swanson, C, Arkansas, 6-5, 310, 5.26, 2...Lacks ideal speed, but Swanson has the athleticism to pull in running game and seal off defenders when blocking straight ahead. Solid making line calls. Started all 50 games of his Razorback career, tied for the second-longest active streak in the country at the end of 2013. 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
