Player Overview

Swain signed with Navy in 2011, after being a four-year letterman in football and twice in track at Mount de Sales Prep Academy in central Georgia.

He didn't do much in 2012, but did start to see game action over the final four contests, including a 46-yard touchdown run against Arizona State in Navy's Bowl game. The next season Swain played in 11 games, starting seven times and finished the 2013 campaign as the team's second leading rusher with 420 yards and four scores.

In 2014, Swain rushed for 693 yards and four touchdowns. He saw his yards per carry move from 3.9 to 6.7. In 2015, he was once again the team's second-leading rusher behind quarterback Keenan Reynolds. Swain busted through the 1,000-yard mark, finishing with 1,038 and 10 touchdowns in 13 games.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Swain played the fullback position in the Navy triple-option attack run masterfully by Keenan Reynolds. At this size, Swain is like a bowling bowl and tough to bring down, especially when he reaches his top end speed. an really scoot for a 250-pounder (will be curious to see his testing times).

Swain has power and can run through defenders. Upon contact, he will continue to drive his legs, showing his determination, strength and balance to stay on his feet.

WEAKNESSES: Swain comes from an unconventional offense, so how will he transition in the NFL and to what position - running back or fullback? Needs to continue to work on protecting his quarterback in pass pro with blitz pickup.

IN OUR VIEW: Dubbed the "Swain Train," he could really be a find in the right scheme. Pre-draft workouts will be critical as NFL scouts will get a close look at how well he does in a conventional NFL offense at both the running back and fullback positions. Swain is intriguing because of his combination of size, speed and power.
