Alex Khvatov:  Describe your first day of practice at the Senior Bowl. 
Travis Swanson:  I thought that it went well.  Obviously it is the first day, and you are working with guys that you have never worked with before.  It is a completely different environment.  As an offense, we did a good job on the first day.  We need to sort out some things schematically. 
Alex Khvatov:  Who was the toughest player that you faced in practice today?
Travis Swanson:  Will Sutton.  His quickness impressed me.    
Alex Khvatov:  What are you trying to prove to scouts this week?
Travis Swanson:  I am just trying to prove that I am a great player.  That is what everyone is trying to prove when they come here.  I want to take some guard reps and show versatility.  I want to add that to my resume as well. 
Alex Khvatov:  What are your strengths?    
Travis Swanson:  My football intelligence and quickness. 
Alex Khvatov:  What was the highlight of your career at Arkansas?
Travis Swanson:  There are two things that I am very proud of.  I was a captain two years in a row.  There are only 11 people in the history of Arkansas’ football that have done it.  I also started 50 straight games during my career.  It is a big accomplishment for me. 
Alex Khvatov:  Where are you currently training for the NFL Draft? 
Travis Swanson:  I am training at Proactive Sports in Irvine, CA.  When I signed with my agency, this is the facility that they worked with.  I did research on my own and I liked what I saw from this training facility. 
Alex Khvatov:  Finish the sentence, Travis Swanson is….
Travis Swanson:  As a person, I am very laid back.  I just like to relax any chance that I get.  As a player, I am very emotional.  I am vocal.
