PLAYERS: Ryan Swope
TEAMS:
Sometimes stereotypes can be funny, and football has its share of them. Texas A&M receiver Ryan Swope shocked all that believe in the myths of racial profiling. He’s a white guy who can run fast, and at the NFL Combine, he clocked a 4.34 40 time that made the proverbial sports bigot say, “He’s pretty fast for a white guy.” “I think a lot of people were pretty shocked. You don’t see that every day, a white guy running a 4.3,” Swope said on the Dan Patrick Show. Michael David Smith of Profootballtalk writes: ‘Although Swope said he personally wasn’t surprised by his time because it was in line with what he’s been running in pre-Combine workouts, he said it’s common for people to lump white receivers together as if they’re all good route runners with good hands but lacking high-end speed. And he’s right. For instance, Swope’s profile on NFL.com is almost a parody of the way white wide receivers are always described.’
