D'Andre Swift reveals timeline for NFL Draft decision
After two offensive linemen announced their plans to leave Georgia for the NFL, RB D’Andre Swift made his own announcement on Tuesday about the NFL Draft.
“I have not made my decision yet… I will decide after the bowl game!!!,” Swift tweeted.
Georgia is set to play Baylor in the Sugar Bowl on New Year’s Day.
Swift has been listed as a first-round pick by some NFL mock drafts. It would be difficult to see what Swift could accomplish individually by returning to Georgia.
He was named to the coaches’ all-SEC first team, and all-SEC second team by the Associated Press. Swift was one of four permanent team captains from the 2019 Georgia team, and co-winner of the Vince Dooley Offensive MVP, which was given at team’s post-season awards gala.
Swift was Georgia’s leading rusher with 1,216 yards on 195 carries, with seven TDs. In the Auburn game he became the fifth player in school history to have multiple 1,000-yard seasons and first since Nick Chubb (2014, 16-17).
Last year, he started five of 14 games and gained a team-high 1,049 yards on 163 carries, with 10 TDs, both career highs.
Entering the Sugar Bowl, Swift has 2,883 career yards, which is seventh on UGA’s all-time list. He has nine career games of at least 100 yards rushing.
