Erik Swoope

2017 Season Outlook

Another former college basketball player turned NFL tight end, Swoope is a field stretcher who averaged nearly 20 yards per reception last season in limited action. But with Dwayne Allen shipped off to New England, Swoope should see increased snaps this season as the second tight end behind Jack Doyle. At just 25 years of age, Swoope has developed nicely over the past two seasons and is a player to watch. Given how much the Colts have historically utilized the tight end position with Andrew Luck, he could be a breakout player as early as 2017.
