2. D'Andre Swift

Stealing Swift from the Eagles makes him even more attractive option, but he profiles similar to Pollard in terms of explosiveness and ability to double as a pass-catcher and make defenders miss in the open field.

The only caveat with Swift is his durability, which is ultimately what prompted Detroit to ship him to Philly for a 2023 seventh-round pick and a fourth-round pick in 2025.

For context, Swift has played 40 of a possible 50 games over his first three years. He's missed at least three games in every season, which is a shame because he's been efficient when healthy, averaging 4.6 yards per carry in his career, including 5.5 YPC in 2022, which was ultimately slowed by a high-ankle sprain.

It'd be easy to label Swift a injury prone player, but the Lions did him zero favors with their injury management last season. The relationship seemingly soured by the end of the season, and he lands in a great spot in the Eagles' run-centric offense to ink a multi-year contract next offseason.

Swift was the No. 35 overall pick three years ago for a reason. He's an exciting young RB who'd look better with a star on his helmet than a set of wings.
