TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Cardinals have added some speed in the sixth round of the NFL draft, using the 174th overall pick on Texas A&M receiver Ryan Swope.
Playing with Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel last season, Swope caught 72 passes for 913 yards and eight touchdowns as a senior. He is Texas A&M's all-time receiving leader with 252 catches and had 24 TD catches.
Swope wowed scouts by running the 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds, tied for second fastest at the NFL combine, but there are concerns about whether he can separate himself from NFL defensive backs.
