On the Hoof: Tall, long, lean defensive back with excellent lower body structure. His body is very thin and he has very long arms.
Needs Improvement: The most obvious improvement will be adding upper body muscle mass and strength. He lacks pop as a hitter and needs the strength to improve his run blocking while creating separation as a receiver. Swann's tackling technique must improve also; he has a tendency to have his head down as he goes low around the ankles.
Most Impressive: He is a very smooth athlete that changes directions on a dime and runs effortlessly. His ball skills are tremendous and he is a serious deep threat as a receiver. Defensively he has the desired height and arm length to match up against big receivers with the versatility to play corner or safety.
Conclusion: It's really hard to say which side of the ball or position he will play at the next level. Though he has the coveted corner height he is also very dangerous with the ball in his hands.
