Biography: All-Conference selection as a senior after totaling 29/13.5/11. Junior totals included 5.5 sacks and 9.5 tackles for loss.
Positives: Relatively athletic college pass rusher whose game is on the upswing. Lined up in a three-point stance at Central Florida, plays with good knee bend and pad level. Explodes off the snap with a great first step, keeps his feet moving on contact, and fluid changing direction. Effectively drops off the line on zone blitzes and makes plays in every direction of the field.
Negatives: Lacks size and is engulfed at the point of attack. Really had only one productive year since transferring Central Florida.
Analysis: Geathers was not on the scouting radar coming into the season, yet he made a name for himself with a terrific senior campaign. He lacks classic size but has good bloodlines and may have a home at rush linebacker for 3-4 alignment.
