Look at what the Colts did with Luck and the Redskins with RG3. They got them weapons asap. After Luck, 2 TE's and a WR with the next three picks (with a D in worse shape than ours).
every time i look at swope highlights i think welker

We all know, Swope has good hands, plenty of speed, has a knack for getting open and runs excellent routes. He is intelligent on the pitch and is very much a Joe Philbin player, in pretty much every way. He is also Ryan Tannehills former house mate and best friend .. if that doesn't breed chemistry and understanding on the field what will?
This game video sums up all of the above and demonstrates why I think he will be so effective, he absolutely rips apart Byalor in the red zone
However an aspect of Swops game that is under appreciated is how tough the guy is, Swope is 6 foot, he isn't a giant or built like a tank but he is tough he can take hits and keep going, he can catch under pressure and he can block - very well. I think blocking is something that would be appreciated by Philbin/Sherman, sort of in the way they love Fasano, not a stud but a productive, honest player who gives it his all. This is a damn good example of how tough he is.
Im no draft expert, but I watched all of the A&M games last season to check out Tannehill and as a result I sort of follow them now, I watched most the games again this season and I love this guy. He will never grab the national attention during draft time but he a reliable, tough, smart receiver who we could bring in and get production from in week one. I love this guy.
No offense to Swope but Nwachukwu may be more the the deep threat the phins O needs.
