DetroitLions.com's Tim Twentyman has been impressed with D'Andre Swift's work in the passing game in training camp.
"Swift's looked very crisp as a receiver early on and he excelled in one-on-one passing drills against defenders on Tuesday," Twentyman, a longtime team employee, observed. "His combination of quickness, speed and suddenness has proven to be a tough combination for defenders to lock onto early in camp." Swift caught a modest 73 passes across his college career, but says he always craved a bigger role in the passing game. Earning an immediate role in the passing game would be a significant fantasy development for a player currently being drafted in the RB26-32 range. It would also be a major issue for on-the-spot third-year pro Kerryon Johnson. Big, explosive and excellent at reading the first level of the defense, Swift has major upside as the No. 35 overall pick.
