Travis Swanson – 6’4 – 318lbs – Arkansas

Travis Swanson is a junior interior lineman from Arkansas. He is a taller than average center who has started every game of his college career to this date. In his last start, Arkansas had two running backs (Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams) go for over 100 yards respectively. He is a Rimington Trophy candidate as the nation’s top center and has protected the likes of Ryan Mallet and Tyler Wilson, allowing each of them to throw over 3,000 yards each year Swanson has been over the ball. In 2013, the Texas native was named a team captain and second-team All-SEC player. Swanson is a better pass protector than he is run blocker but with the right coaching, he could become a dominant center in the NFL.

    Good stuff man. Honestly I love and live for the draft. I spend hours even in the regular season imagining who we’ll get. I think we’re sound at the center spot but Jeff Allen is kind of suspect. He did well in the last game but that was against Jacksonville. I could see us getting a center and moving Hudson over. I’d also like to see Stephenson get some reps at guard too. He could be like Carl Nicks perhaps. Either way keep these coming man they rock.
