    because he is a great football player.... Comparing him to Hartline is asinine considering the only comparison is they are both white receivers. Swope has great speed and is very good after the catch

    Swope is a really good player. When he had a QB that actually threw the ball, he played lights out. Last year his number wasn't called as much. The kid is smart and plays very well in the slot. He's a bigger, faster version of Wes Welker. The only knock on him is the concussions. Otherwise, he's a perfect fit for several reasons.

    My biggest concern with Swope is his history of concussions!

    I'd rather draft Bailey or one of several other WRs.

    I'll take Swope...but will Ireland and the Boys take Swope. If they do, your observations are incorrect. It's that simple.

    Get set to welcome Swope to Miami. Mike Sherman loves him.

    Seriously? So, a guy who runs faster than Randall Cobb, jumps higher than Randall Cobb, tests quicker laterally in the 3-cone and the shuttle than Randall Cobb, is taller and heavier than Randall Cobb and you want to call him Brian Hartline? Hartline runs a 4.52, Mike Wallace runs a 4.32, and Ryan Swope ran a 4.34 ... hmmmm. Hartline is 6'2, Wallace is 6'0, and Swope is 6'0 ... hmmm. If you're going to blindly compare Swope to someone without any merit ... you might as well compare him to Mike Wallace. The reality is that Ryan Swope isn't Welker, he isn't Hartline, and he isn't Mike Wallace. If Danny Amendola could stay healthy a full season, Swope would be a bigger, faster, better version of him perhaps, but really, Swope doesn't profile to any of these white receivers so many nay-sayers want to project him to be. The guys with his athletic ability are very rare.

    Swope produced phenomenally in Sherman's offense catching passes from Tannehill. It's a no-brainer that we'd want him.

    If we are talking taking a late rounder at WR I would rather have Da'Rick Rogers. First round talent with some troubles, but worth the risk in the 3rd.

    Wes Welker 2. He fits the philbin mold of slot WR and played 19 games with Tannehill in same offense and made big plays.

    Philbin is looking for big plays.

    He has speed that Bess doesn't. He has an existing relationship with Tannehill and already knows the base offense. Bess and Gibson are only under contract through this season and can walk next season. The pick makes sense on several levels.

    Why is everyone caught up in Ryan Swope?

    Why anyone wants a concussion prone slot receiver on the team is beyond me.

    I hear everyone saying Tavon Austin will not be able to stay healthy yet he never missed a practice. Swope gets hurt all the time in college and everyone wants to draft this guy. I don't get it.
