7. DJ SWEARINGER |South Carolina 5104 |208 lbs|4SR Greenwood, SC (Greenwood HS) 7/12/1990 (age 22) #36

2012: (12/12) 79/3.0/9/2 PROJECTION: 2nd-3rd Round
2011: (13/13) 80/1.5/6/3 MEASUREABLES: 5104 | 208 | 32 3-8” | 9 1-2" | 77 5-8”
2010: (14/8) 66/2.0/6/1 COMBINE: 4.67 40-YD DASH | 1.63 10-YD | 17 REPS | 37” V | 10-4 BJ | 6.70 3C | 4.11 SS
2009: (13/0) 19/0.0/1/0

STRENGTHS: Throws his body around on the field, arriving to the ballcarrier with power and pop to drive him backwards…extremely physical and confident, playing fast and decisive…reads the eyes of the QB and not afraid to come of his man to make plays…undercuts routes and looks to pluck the ball out of the air with natural hands and return ability (7 INTs, 1 TD)…fiery demeanor and likes to chirp…improved awareness vs. the run…versatile starting experience at both safety and CB.

WEAKNESSES: Needs to get stronger and add bulk to his upper body and limbs…gets his eyes stuck in the wrong place at times, causing him to be a step too late in coverage or helping at the sideline…too physical downfield with bad habit of grabbing…streaky tackling technique, leading with his helmet and hitting to high which forces him to try and hug/wrestle to the ground…poor discipline, especially as a hitter and will attract too many penalties for targeting, taunting and personal fouls.

SUMMARY: Versatile DB the past four seasons in the SEC, starting 33 career games at CB, FS and SS…extremely physical and enjoys contact, arriving to the play with violent intentions…goes for the big hit, but doesn’t always wrap and needs to play smarter…athletic with the foot quickness to hold up in coverage, but room to improve his awareness…thumping hitter with position versatility, but lack of discipline makes him tough to trust right now…potential NFL starter within two years.

I like this pick a lot but he better learn to get tackle a little lower against NFL RB's or they'll shake him off like a flea. The bigger WR's will, also. I'm liking our entire draft, so far.

His role will be to keep Shiloh Keo on the freaking bench in the 3 safety set Wade loves.

EDIT: OK, OK. I came late to the thread. I didn't know everyone and their mother had already posted this.

I think he's going to be something special.

Talented. Super instinctive with where to be and whether to hit or wrap up, or play the ball.

The confidence is there, too.

Hopkins and swearinger make the draft for me. Just get solid players the rest of the way.

This city is going to love Hopkins and swearinger. Two passionate players that wear it on their sleeve...

And not I'm not talking about a patch on a letterman...

I do not see this getting flagged. He did not lead with his head, did not hit the runner in his head. Used is shoulder and hit in the chest.

Looking forward to seeing him hit some Pats, Ravens, Titans, Jags, Colts,Broncos this season.

Yeah, that ONE doesn't seem like flag, but after watching more on him he does have some suspect hits were he better learn to keep that head up. I love his intensity, but we don't need it costing the team in yards & him in money. Still believe he will be a good one.

We need to get flagged more.

Not for fake illegal hits. Like the bull calls watt gets.

We need to get flagged more ala pollard and reed. Receivers need to understand that we're going to take a penalty or two sometimes whilst punishing them. They don't need to be out there running around care free playing against a defense that they aren't concerned about getting their bell rung against.

Not saying be dirty, but when you play hard and aggressive and look to punish offensive players...you're going to get flagged sometimes. That's just the reality.

Couldn't have said it any better. This team needs the aggression and that attitude. Someone who just doesn't give a **** who is lined up on the other side of the ball and intends on making them think twice about catching the ball over the middle. Cushing was exactly this as well so I have no issue with Swearinger.
