DJ Swearinger is a smaller safety, standing at just over 5'11" tall and around 210 lbs with a compact, thick frame. Swearinger possesses strong hands and surprising strength for a safety his size. He has shown the ability to keep blockers off of his body and disengage in the box. He is a good tackler in space that has shown the ability to make the tackle as the last line of the defense. He also has handed out many highlight reel type hits and has earned a reputation as a hard hitter.

Swearinger is a talented and athletic safety in coverage. He is capable of matching up on wide receivers and tight ends in man to man coverage. In deep zones, DJ flashes great range and ball skills but he needs to improve his recognition skills and jump on the ball. He looks very comfortable in zone coverage in the box.

With his versatility, athleticism and skill in coverage, Swearinger possesses the upside and talent that teams look for early in the draft at safety.
