Bio: 
First-year starter who earned First Team All-MAC honors and led the conference with 242 carries and 1,363 rushing yards in 2017 while finishing second with 14 rush TDs. Rushed 116 times for 583 yards and four scores as a junior. Named Second Team All-MAC and carried 143 times for 923 yards and seven touchdowns in 2015. Recorded 113 rushes for 732 yards and six TDs as a true freshman.
Pos: 
Small, creative ball carrier who is also effective as a pass catcher out of the backfield. Displays terrific vision, finds running lanes and quickly turns it upfield. Patient, effectively sets up and follows blocks and squeezes through small openings in the offensive line. Easily cuts back against the grain, runs with good lean and keeps his feet moving. Gives effort blocking. Falls forward when tackled.
Neg: 
Displays limited strength as a runner and is easily brought down at the point by a single opponent. More of a one-speed back who struggles to beat defenders into the open field.
Analysis: 
Swanson is an agile and relatively athletic ball carrier with potential as a third-down back.
