After seeing Swift’s father, though, many thought the Lions should have taken the older Swift instead.
Swift’s dad, Darren, runs a gym in Philadelphia and easily looks like he’d fit right in in the NFL.
Naturally, fans flocked to social media after seeing Darren’s cameo on ESPN, wondering when they’d hear NFL commissioner Roger Goodell call his name in the draft.

To a hearty debate.
Hey, if the Lions play it right, they could lock down a nice two-for-one deal with their second-round pick.
