Erik Swoope




Let me start by warning I have a definite bias towards University of Miami Players. and I especially love 'Canes Hoops.

But I am seriously excited about the possibility of Erik Swoope (rhymes with hope not hoop FYI) finding his way on the Colts roster as a practice player at worst.

Swoope is 6'5 220 with serious speed and hops. He once beat Shane Larkin (who was easily the fastest player at the NBA combine last season) in a foot race.

Some more background:

Q&A from 2 years ago I did with Swoope (I am proud to say i was the first or one of the first to see this coming)

And a few other articles I have written on him:

Here are a few of the articles I have written about him:

(watch the highlights on these last 2 if you have time)

Sorry for the shameless promotions.

Swoope is a great kid and a serious athlete. He is easy to cheer for and there is little doubt in my mind he can pull this off, especially with the help of Andrew Luck.

It is going to be fun to watch in any case. If Swoope makes the Colts they jump right up there with the Saints (because of Jimmy Graham) as one of my favorite NFL teams.
