Erik Swoope is a player to watch in dynasty leagues. He is another converted tight end from a basketball career (University of Miami) who has shown signs of promise as he learns the game and the position. Swoope at 6'5, 246 pounds, has prototypical size of an NFL tight end and we already know he has good hands. The tight end position has evolved over the last ten years and has uncovered the talents of former basketball players turned pass catchers. The list of successful converters is growing and it's impressive. Antonio Gates, Jimmy Graham, Jordan Cameron and Julius Thomas all started their careers as basketball players with little to no football background. Swoope is miles away from rising ahead of Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener on the Colts depth chart, but there is definitely promise looking ahead. He may not clear waivers if placed on the practice squad, which means another team with less of a path on the depth chart, could benefit from his talents and take the converted hardwood player to new heights.
