Heading into the 2019 season, much will be expected of Georgia RB D’Andre Swift, who is one of the best running backs in the country.
As someone who faced Swift every day in practices last season, former Georgia DB Deandre Baker is high on Swift’s talents.
During his NFL Combine interview on Monday, Baker proclaimed that Swift is, in fact, the best back in all of college football (via Rivals.com):
“He is the best back in college football. By far. Just his change in direction. He can do everything. He can be a power back, a speed back. He can line up out wide. He can do it all. D’Andre Swift is the best running back right now in college.”
Swift ran for 1,049 yards and 10 touchdowns, adding 297 yards and three scores as a receiver.
He’ll be counted on to do even more for the Georgia offense in 2019, and it’s clear Baker thinks his former teammate is up for the challenge.
