Default Re: 2nd round DJ Swearinger

I'm not particularly enamored with the pick. He'll be good, maybe very good, but he doesn't have the upside to be elite; and at 5'-10" will be a mismatch against elite TE's and some of the best WR's. He'll make the hit after the catch, but giving up 6" -8" in height, QB's can take advantage of this...B- is all I can give the pick.

Troy Polamalu is listed at 5'10" as well.

Default Re: 2nd round DJ Swearinger

Swearinger measured in at 5'10'04 with arm length of 32-3/8.

I think that's about Quin's measurement or slightly better.
Also, he's about 1/2 longer than Matt Elam who was drafted earlier.

His posted numbers in the 20SS and 3-cone are both better than Quin, suggesting that he has the agility to stay with his man.

I would have liked for him to be taller, but overall, his measurements aren't too bad.

Default Re: 2nd round DJ Swearinger

I've changed my position on this pick a bit. I never figured FS to be a weakness going into the draft and had SS on my mind. It seems Swearinger will be groomed for FS and used in the sub-packages this next season. I like him in this role just fine - it's an excellent pick.

For SS, I want that big, fast, strong hybrid type to match up against elite TE's and big #2 receivers in the short middle zone.

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.
I could stand a few more flags, but them receivers were getting dikdirted all year long. Kj is mean, Manning don't give a fug, and Quins a hitter. I even remember seeing Jjo take a couple of heads off..... didn't get flagged, should've, but didn't.

They deny it, but I think Welker dropped all them balls, because he was looking/expecting for the off defender.

The difference, is that Polamalu was on the field every down, giving him ample opportunity to make plays. Swearinger will be coming off the bench & have to make the most of limited opportunity.

Hopefully he won't get manhandled by opposing tight ends like Glover.

That would be like . Ed's been fined and had a suspension rescinded for headhunting. That said, he does play mean. I hope he can learn to reel it in a little. It sure likes he's got a little Bernard Pollard in him.

I hope he's better than Arthur Brown, because apparently that's who the Texans were going to take until Baltimore traded ahead of them to get him.

Good interview. Nothing ground breaking, but you can tell this guy loves football. Hearing him talk about being in the same room with Ed Reed made me smile. Says he loves to watch film to pick up any advantages he can on his opponent. Feels like the middle of the field belongs to him and he's basically there to make QB's Recievers and backs pay for trying to make plays in his area.

He played RB, QB and Safety in highschool. Sam Montgomery was a DE and he said Sam made it easy for him and he looks forward to more of the same in the pros.
