Former Canes guard Erik Swoope is looking to become the next Jimmy Graham, only without any football experience in college or high school. Via the Palm Beach Post:
Swoope, a 6-foot-5, 220-pound power forward on UM’s basketball team, announced today on his Twitter account he will enter the NFL Draft.
Swoope has not played a down at the college or high school level. He worked out for the Denver Broncos last week at UM, making a pro football turn a strong possibility.
Swoope could have had the same opportunity if he did not turn pro, but working out for the Broncos compromised his college eligibility.
Seems foolish to kill that remaining eligibility with one workout, doesn’t it? Seems like he could have used that potential college football experience.
