Among the flock of undrafted free agents signed in the aftermath of the draft, general manager Ryan Grigson signed former University of Miami forward Erik Swoope as a tight end.
At 6-foot-5, 220-pound, Swoope spent four years on the Hurricanes' hoops team and has never played organized football at any level of his athletic career.
Graham certainly wasn't the first to give up the round ball to haul in the oblong pigskin. Notable recent converted pass-catchers such as future Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez and Antonio Gates are examples of modern success creating tight ends from power forwards.
The Colts hope Swoope can be a long-term project, with freakish athleticism, who can learn and grow in their system.
In the short term, he'll have a hard time making a squad with Coby Fleener and a healthy Dwayne Allen. The process of learning to compete with professionals can be difficult for a man who's never played football.
Swoope could be a good practice squad stash for Grigson with a potential to develop into the next hardwood-to-gridiron success story.
