Daxton Swanson

School: Sam Houston State
Position: CB
Bio: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors the past two seasons after being named to several all-America teams as a junior. Senior totals included 46/4/14 after posting 49 tackles and eight interceptions in 2011.
Positive: Fluid cornerback with nice size as well as a history of making big plays. Quick when flipping his hips to transition off the line with opponents. Stays with receivers out of breaks and maintains solid downfield coverage. Plays heads-up football, displays good ball skills, and has a nice break to the throw as well as a burst of closing speed. Displays timing on pass defenses, gets vertical, and adjusts to knock away the throw. Battles receivers at the line scrimmage and mixes it up throughout the route. Does a nice job reading receivers' eyes, then getting his head back around to locate the pass in the air. Effective facing the action and shows good route recognition in zone coverage.
Negative: Stiff pedaling in reverse and is better facing the action. Not a sure tackler. Lacks long speed.
Analysis: Swanson was effective on the small-school level and has the ball skills to play in dime packages for a zone system at the next level.
