Texas A&M WR Ryan Swope: People Are Shocked I’m A White Guy Running a 4.3 (Video)

NCAA Football: Cotton Bowl-Texas A&M vs Oklahoma

Former Texas A&M wide receiver Ryan Swope blazed a 4.34 40 yard dash at the combine, and made himself some money. Swope who was flying under the radar a bit, is no longer an unknown in NFL circles.

During an interview on “The Dan Patrick Show” on Thursday, Swope was asked about being a white guy with that kinds of speed.

He said the fact that a white guy ran as fast as he did probably caught some people off guard.

“I think a lot of people were pretty shocked,” Swope said. “You don’t see that every day, a white guy running a 4.3. I just wanted to go out and let people know how important this is to me. This is a big deal. I’m trying to make it in the NFL and I want to go out and do it the right way.”

Swope’s initial scouting report suggested that his straight line speed was overrated.  Swope says he’s always been compared to successful white wide receivers, and he has no problem being compared to Wes Welker.

“I’ve been compared to Welker,” he said. “I think that’s a huge compliment because Welker’s a great football player. … But I think people decide to make a white and white comparison.”

Black or white, Swope will definitely have a job.
