An increased role in the passing game never happened for Texas Longhorns tight end Geoff Swaim in 2014, as he caught only 10 passes for 70 yards and a touchdown, but he continued his excellent efforts as a blocker.
The junior college transfer from Butte CC in California was a blue-collar worker in the run game over his two seasons in Austin, consistently putting his hat on defenders when working as an in-line tight end or as a move blocker from the H-back or fullback position. Swaim displayed good mobility, functional strength, and hand placement in all of those roles.
At the Texas Pro Timing Day in March, Swaim impressed with his athleticism, similar to former Texas tight end Greg Smith:
|40 time||Vert||Broad jump||Shuttle||3-cone||Bench|
|4.61 seconds||35.5 inches||10 feet 4 inches||4.58 seconds||7.28 seconds||N/A|
Swaim measured in at 6'5 and 242 pounds.
Even though he drew some buzz for his testing in Austin, Swaim will almost certainly have to catch on as an undrafted free agent. He's ranked as the No. 726 prospect overall in the NFLDraftScout.com rankings.
