In this series of articles, I will be picking one position group each week from which I will be choosing four players to evaluate. There will be three that you’ve probably heard of, and one that you probably haven’t. Please enjoy and I look forward to reading your comments.
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.
