Dud: D'Andre Swift, Running Back

Philly has made no secret of their love for the Georgia program. They've been picking players from the school for the past couple of seasons and that includes Jordan Davis, Nakobe Dean, Kelee Ringo, and Jalen Carter.

That's why it was no surprise at all when they were the ones to take up the Detroit Lions offer when they were looking to move D'Andre Swift. The Eagles landed the former Bulldog for a mere fifth-rounder in 2023 and a swap of seventh-round selections.

Swift has been great on the ground this year with 434 yards in the first five weeks and will easily surpass the personal-best 617 he had in 2021. As good as he's been on the ground, the Eagles wanted to see him do more in the passing game — which is where he was at his best in Detroit.

It was easy to see why as Swift was targeted seven times in the first half alone and had six receptions for 35 yards, including one of the more impressive touchdowns of the year.

Swift was able to catch a pass that wasn't thrown exactly where he needed it to be and held on through contact. He then kept his balance long enough to cross the goal line and improve their lead to 14-3.

The problem is, he was a non-factor after this. He not only turned the ball over when he lost a fumble but he was a complete non-factor on the ground with just 18 yards on 10 carries. Add his 44 yards on eight receptions and they managed just 62 yards despite feeding him the ball 18 times.
