Most projected D’Andre Swift as the first running back off the board Thursday night; however, things didn’t work out like Swift had planned and most mock drafts predicted.
Two teams were projected as ideal landing spots for Swift late in the first round — Dolphins and Chiefs. Both, however, went different directions. The Dolphins selected Auburn cornerback Noah Igbinoghene and the Chiefs selected LSU running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire with the No. 32 pick.
That leaves Swift to get drafted during Friday night’s second round. Swift likely won’t have to wait much longer to hear his name called, but missing out on the first round has to be disappointing for the Bulldogs standout.
Following the Chiefs selection of Edwards-Helaire, Swift took to social media to express his emotions.
Swift is the do-it-all back who rushed for 2,885 yards and 20 touchdowns during his 3-year career at Georgia. The beautiful thing about Swift is that he has a lot of miles still left on the tread, as he only totaled 440 total carries during his career.
