BIOGRAPHY: Junior-college transfer who totaled 27/7/3.5 as a senior after 71/24.5/14 the prior year. Awarded all-Conference and all-America
honors in 2007.
POSITIVES: Swain is a fairly athletic prospect coming off a disappointing senior season. He has the physical skills to be used as a weak
side linebacker, yet he must really prove his ability to make plays in reverse for any opportunity to play in the NFL.
NEGATIVES: Handled at the point and very slow getting off blocks. Rarely asked to do anything other than rush the passer.
ANALYSIS: College defensive end who projects to outside linebacker. Quick off the snap out of a three-point stance, bends his knees,
and plays with good pad level. Works his hands throughout the action, quickly redirects to plays, and moves well about the
field. Rarely off his feet, and plays with good balance. Fast off the edge, loses no momentum altering his angle of attack,
and shows the ability in backside pursuit.
