D.J. Swearinger

School: South Carolina
Position: S
Bio: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a senior. Totals last year included 79 tackles/2 interceptions/7 pass break-ups after 80/3/3 as a junior.
Positive: Aggressive, feisty safety with a well-rounded game. Displays speed in a straight-line or laterally, plays faster than his 40-time and gets outside the numbers to make plays. Displays outstanding ball skills in deep center field but also effective lining up over the slot receiver. Works well with cornerbacks, nicely times pass defenses, and gets vertical then adjusts to knock the pass away. Quick up the field defending the run and plays with suddenness. Remains disciplined with assignments, effective facing the action, and makes a lot of athletic plays. Hard hitter who goes for the knockout blow and drives through tackles.
Negative: Likes to show boat and jaw at opponents. At times an overly aggressive, which results in long plays for the opposition. Lacks classic height for the safety position. Possesses average long speed.
Analysis: Swearinger offers a complete game effectively covering the run or defending the pass. He lacks classic measurables for the next level but plays big and fast and offers starting potential in a variety of defensive schemes.
