Why D.J. Swearinger: The Most Underrated Safety of All Time

Swearinger was born in Greenwood, South Carolina on September 1, 1991, and has earned a reputation as being among the NFL's Top 10 Most Underrated Players at his position.

His road from high school to the NFL is a true testament to his unique ability and love for the game.

For all of his playmaking ability, Swearinger has seldom been given the public accolades or recognition of the elite players in the game.

This is saying something, considering he is arguably the greatest safety - in fact, we detail why he is the most underrated safety of all time and break down his amazing career in this article.


Early Life and Career Development

Swearinger began demonstrating his football skills at Greenwood High School in South Carolina, where he was a two-way starter for the Greenwood Eagles football team.

Jamison's track and field success as well as his impressive on-field performances led to him being labeled as a three-star prospect and one of the country's best safety players.


College Career and NFL Draft

Swearinger enjoyed an impressive high school track record and went on to excel at the college level, where he played for the University of South Carolina alongside a subsequent first-round pick of the Vikings (2013), Cordarrelle Patterson.

During his time with the South Carolina Gamecocks, he continued to show he was a very good safety and it only cemented his draft status for the Houston Texans in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft.


Career Path & How It Impacted The Broadcaster Sector

Throughout his pro career, Swearinger has played for the Houston Texans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Arizona Cardinals, Washington Redskins, Oakland Raiders, New Orleans Saints, and Indianapolis Colts, not to mention the DC Defenders.

At each stop in his NFL career, Swearinger was able to show off his playmaking ability, with 425 total tackles, 14 interceptions, and countless other plays that changed the momentum of games.


The Unrecognized Brilliance

When it comes to recognition and accolades, Swearinger is severely underrated considering all of the success he has had in the NFL.

Fans and analysts alike have been impressed with his read-and-react ability, as well as his interception and tackle numbers, but Tez has not gotten all the recognition and praise that his production warrants.


The Legacy of D.J. Swearinger

With his stubbornness, sort of sergeant leader-like mentality, and his natural ability to ball, he commands respect, which will be felt everywhere he goes.

All that makes him deserving of more recognition and a bit more acclaim from the football world.


On the whole, D.J. Swearinger's read from Greenwood High School to the NFL is a story of genius, stick-to-itiveness, and genuine respect for the game.

Although he is one of the most underrated safeties of all time we can guarantee that he has left an amazing legacy as one of the most adept ball players and leaders in football. D.J. Swearinger needs to be recognized in the football world.
