Ryan Swope (born September 20, 1990) is a former American football wide receiver. He was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2013 NFL Draft.[1]

College career[edit]

As a sophomore at Texas A&M in 2010, Swope and Jeff Fuller both broke Rod Bernstine’s 24 year-old school single-season receptions record with 72.[2] As a junior the following season, Swope broke his own record for receptions and set the record for single-season receiving yards with 89 catches for 1,207 yards. He also had 11 receiving touchdowns that year, which at the time was the second highest single-season total on school history. As a senior in 2012, he set the school record for career receptions with 252.[3] Although his single-season yardage record has since been broken by Mike Evans, his season and career reception records both still stand.

Swope was also a sprinter, with a personal best of 10.70 seconds in the 100 meters.[citation needed]
