Moments ago, Georgia running back D'Andre Swift heard his name called with the 35th overall pick in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He is the second running back off the board this year.

While it might be D'Andre's big night, his dad Darren stole the show. The founder of Swift Fit in Philadelphia, Darren might be in as good a shape as his NFL-bound progeny.

During D'Andre's prospect breakdown video, Darren was featured heavily. ESPN showed footage of the elder Swift's workout and it was...intense.

The old man--call him old to his face at your own peril--can throw up some serious weight. Check out these clips.

It isn't hard to see where D'Andre got the good genetics from that enabled him to be a star for the Bulldogs and and early second round pick of the Detroit Lions.

Would love to see father and son have a liftoff in the gym one day.
