Draft Scout Ryan Swope News
06/04/13 - Although rookie wide receiver Ryan Swope was not at the Arizona Cardinals practice Monday, coach Bruce Arians declined to confirm it was due to the player's head injuries suffered in college.
"We don't have injury reports at this time of the year," Arians told Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic Monday. When pressed on whether he was concerned, Arians replied, "No, he'll be fine."
These are valid observations and concerns because Swope, a sixth-round pick, suffered four concussions in his career at Texas A&M, and last week Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald told SiriusXM Swope had missed practices.
Arians noted that the Cardinals have good talent at wide receiver, although there is a lack of experience after Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and Andre Roberts.
"When you go and watch the tape, there is a lot of speed over there, a lot of good things happening with those young guys," he said of the young receivers.
04/28/13 - A closer look at the Cardinals' picks: Round 6/174 - Ryan Swope, WR, 6-0, 204, Texas A&M ... He adds speed to the wide receiver group. He was timed in the 40 in 4.34 seconds at the scouting combine. But he has a history of concussions, and that caused him to fall in the draft. The Cardinals were looking to add speed to the position. - The Sports Xchange
03/16/13 - 2013 Texas A&M Pro Day: Ryan Swope, WR (6 1/4, 203) - Swope - who grabbed a lot of attention for running a 4.34-second 40 in Indy - stood on his numbers from the combine. Former Texas A&M quarterback Jerrod Johnson - the Aggies’ starter before Ryan Tannehill emerged as starter - threw passes to Swope, who looked good in the workout. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
03/11/13 - 2013 Texas A&M Pro Day: Another player who drew a lot of attention was receiver Ryan Swope. The former running back turned heads when he tied for the second-fastest 40-yard dash time at the combine with a 4.34.
Sumlin said several scouts commented on Swope's size because they expected him to be smaller. Swope is 6-foot and 205 pounds. Swope, who is projected to be a third-round pick, was second on the team last season with 72 receptions for 913 yards and eight touchdowns. ''You can see on tape his toughness and love of the game, but really just getting to see him in person and see his athleticism was impressive,'' Allen said. - AP Sports
03/11/13 - 2013 Texas A&M Pro Day: Swope, who tied for the second-fastest 40 at the combine with a 4.34, said he wasn't surprised to post such a fast time. "My goal was to be fast and compete. I wanted to set the standard high," he said. Sumlin said he was impressed with the Aggies' all-time receiving leader and that his combine workout really helped his NFL standing. "His workout today probably helped him a little more," Sumlin said. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
