Swarm cells versus drone cells

Hi everyone! 1st year beekeeper here hoping for a little help identifying cells I found during inspection today. West TN, overwintered colony from a nuc last year. Double deep configuration.

I found these cells on the bottom of one of the frames in the top deep. They look too big for drone cells but don't quite seem to be swarm cells to me either. I've looked for some good examples online, but haven't found anything that makes me confident I know what I'm looking at so I know if I should be using these for a split or not. I'm hoping someone here can help differentiate. What am I looking at here?
