BIOGRAPHY: Two year starter who totaled 40/6.5/5.5 as a junior after 32/9.5/5.5 the prior year. Father Jumpy Geathers played 13 years in the NFL.
POSITIVES: Fundamentally sound defensive end that plays with a relentless attitude. Fluid moving about field, plays with good pad level and rarely off his feet. Quick off the snap, immediately changes direction and smooth moving down the line of scrimmage to make plays. Can twist or stunt and stays within his pass rush angle.
NEGATIVES: Lacks top speed off the edge. Easily handled by opponents and can be a liability in run defense. Gets caught up in the trash moving laterally or engulfed by blockers altogether.
ANALYSIS: Geathers did a solid job the past two seasons at UNLV yet possesses marginal size/speed numbers for the next level. He offers possibilities as a pass rush specialist at defensive end or outside linebacker yet may never be anything other than a backup in the NFL.
