Whether you believe a running back is worth the 35th overall pick or not in today’s NFL, the addition of D’Andre Swift undoubtedly brings about some excitement to the Detroit Lions and their fans. Swift was a highly productive back in college—eclipsing 2,300 total yards in each of his final two seasons at Georgia with a combined 25 touchdowns.

Swift was considered by many to be the top running back in the draft due to his versatility as a threat in the running and passing game, while also possessing near-elite athletic traits necessary for success at the next level.

He also feels like that final piece of the puzzle for the Lions offense, which already has a top-10 pick at tight end, last year’s receiving touchdown leader, another second-round pick at running back and two receivers—Marvin Jones Jr. and Danny Amendola—playing at high levels.

But just in case that doesn’t have you hyped enough, just look at this insane footwork from Swift, as he continues to train this offseason:
