Erik Swoope a 'pleasant surprise'
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Colts rookie Erik Swoope isn't your typical tight end -- he spent his college career playing basketball at the University of Miami. But Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton has seen Swoope transition nicely to football, where he's trying to follow in the footsteps of another former 'Cane-turned-tight end in Jimmy Graham.

"It's been a pleasant surprise just to see how he's been able to acclimate himself to the game of football," Hamilton said per ESPN. "His natural-born talents show every day in practice. He does an amazing job of going up and catching the football, making difficult catches. He has a catching radius that's off the charts. It'll be interesting to see how he comes along during training camp when we put the pads on and actually start practicing football." 

Swoope figures to begin his career on the Colts' practice squad, according to ESPN.
