Did a transmission swap on a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4x4. Now won't start. I'm thinking it has something to do with the neutral safety switch. Any suggestions?

I get it to fire up for a second with a screwdriver on the starter. But dies out right after it cranks up. Will not even turn over with the key.

you could try holding the key in the start position and move the shifter through the gears to see if somewhere you have contact with the starter. HOLD THE BRAKE PEDAL DOWN BECAUSE IF THE ENGINE STARTS WHILE YOUR ACTUALLY IN GEAR THE TRUCK WILL TAKE OFF!

Even if the neutral safety switch is not adjusted correctly it shouldn't make it so the engine won't run once you got it to crank over. Is your security light on or flashing?
