NFL Draft 2013: Ryan Swope, Uzoma Nwachukwu work out for Jaguars

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE

The Jacksonville Jaguars hosted a pair of wide receivers for private workouts on Friday. The team hosted both Ryan Swope and Uzoma Nwachukwu for workouts, both of whom played at Texas A&M.

Swope is the bigger name of the two, surprising people at the NFL Combine with his 4.34 40-yard dash time, and finished his final three seasons at Texas A&M with over 800 yards receiving each season. Swope is projected to go somewhere in the third day of the draft.

The more interesting prospect out of the pair however is Nwachukwu, who was not invited to the NFL Combine. He impressed at the Texas A&M Pro Day however, running the 40 in the mid-4.4 range and posting excellent 3-cone and short shuttle times, as well as a 10'10" broad jump and 39.5" vertical.

Nwachukwu was always a complimentary receiver during his time at A&M, playing behind the likes of Jeff Fuller and Swope, but his athleticism will interest teams and his ability in the open field might have a team consider him at a kick returner spot. He can play both inside and outside at receiver, as well.
