The Dallas Cowboys traded a 2016 pick to acquire one last pick when they selected Geoff Swaim with the 246th pick in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Swaim finished his collegiate career at the University of Texas, seeing most of his playing time as a blocking tight end. He has the athletic ability to develop into an all-around tight end, and saw time in multiple tight end sets as a rookie, playing in four games with one start, sticking around the line most of the time as an extra run blocker. His blocking abilities were on display for the first half of the 2016 season before a torn pec landed him on Reserve/Injured. He will return in 2017 looking to provide Dallas with another key piece in the run game.
Started six of the nine games he played, catching six passes for 69 yards before a pec injury landed him on Reserve/Injured in November.
Started the opener against the N.Y. Giants (9/11) as the second tight end and caught one pass for 21 yards.
Caught two passes for 29 yards with a career-long 28-yarder at Washington (9/18) then helped block for 194 yards and a 36:27 time of possession at San Francisco (10/2).
Started at Green Bay (10/16) and helped block for Ezekiel Elliott’s fourth straight 130-yard game.
After starting as the second tight end at Pittsburgh (11/13), suffered a pectoral injury that forced him from the game, required surgery and landed him on Reserve/Injured.
Was a gameday inactive for a majority of his rookie season but saw time in four games with one start.
Made his NFL debut with James Hanna (knee) sidelined at Philadelphia (9/20) and caught his first career pass (0 yards) while helping the offense control the clock for 40:25.
Against New England (10/11) made his first career start as the club opened with three tight ends and Hanna (ankle) was sidelined.
Saw his next game action at Buffalo (12/27) and was part of a front that did not yield a sack in Kellen Moore’s first career start.
