D’Andre Swift Makes Surprising NFL Draft Decision
D’Andre Swift made a surprising NFL decision this week.
Swift, the star running back for No. 5 ranked Georgia, has been an absolute beast all year long.
Over the course of the season Swift racked up seven touchdowns and 1,216 yards, all the while being inarguably the most potent offensive weapon on the roster.
Swift has one year of eligibility remaining, but most people have been expecting him to turn pro after this season.
On Wednesday, the Bulldogs star took to Twitter to reveal his status as far as the 2020 Draft goes: undecided.
I have not made my decision yet… I will decide after the bowl game!!!

“I have not made my decision yet,” he tweeted out.
“I will decide after the bowl game!!!”
Recently, Pro Football Focus’ Joey Frigo spoke to Swift’s father, who indicated that his son wants to return to Georgia for his senior season.
“Spoke to D’Andre Swift’s Dad (@DAndreSwift ) today in Philadelphia,” Frigo tweeted out.
“He told me his son’s plan is to play in the Sugar Bowl AND come back for his senior season next year. Says he wants to get UGA a National Championship.”
Georgia will play Baylor in the Sugar Bowl this year, and Swift will be absolutely crucial if the Bulldogs want to win this one.
According to Todd McShay of ESPN, Swift will likely be the first running back off the board if he leaves this year.
ESPN has the Tennessee Titans selecting Swift with the 21st pick of the 2020 NFL Draft, but obviously that is fluid.
For now, what’s important is Swift’s status for the Sugar Bowl. And at the moment, all signs point to him playing on January 1.
