    South Carolina safety D.J. Swearinger didn’t hesitate Sunday at the NFL Combine when asked who he models his game after.
    “Ray Lewis[IMG] first and foremost,” he responded. “Ed Reed[IMG] would have to be my second choice

    “I’m the best safety in this draft because I’m a leader first and foremost,” he said. “I have instincts that coaches can’t coach. You can’t coach instincts. I have great ball skills, great feet and hips. I’m going to stay in that film room and be a hard worker day in and day out

    “I would see myself fitting right in with the Ravens,” he said. “Losing their leader like Ray Lewis, I consider myself a leader first and foremost so I think I would go right in and be a defensive leader and get in well with the playbook and get right.”

    this is the type of player our D needs

    don't care about the penalties

    True leaders don't need to run around thumping their chests proclaiming they are leaders... Their actions and others naturally following them will make them leaders.

    True, but the combine is a time where the players are asked about themselves and to list what they perceive to be their best traits. I always kind of give a pass to the players when they are braggadocios at the combine. It is what they're supposed to do there in a lot of ways.

    I do agree with what you're saying, but in this case I wouldn't ding Swearinger for saying it.

    He sure likes to use "First and foremost." I think that's the most I've seen someone use that term in my whole life.
