Draft Scout *Kwame Geathers News
04/29/13 - 2013 NFL DRAFT: TOP 10 UNDRAFTED UNDERCLASSMEN: 6. DT Kwame Geathers, Georgia (6-6, 342, 5.44)...The latest player from the Geathers family to make the jump to the NFL, Kwame has the size and length that cannot be taught. But he was nothing more than a part-time player at Georgia and struggled to make much of an impact. Geathers likely should have returned to school and proved he can make an impact, but not many humans are built like him. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
03/28/13 - 2013 Georgia Pro Day: Representatives from all 32 NFL teams gathered at Georgia’s pro day on Thursday for a workout held outdoors on FieldTurf in approximately 40-degree temperatures. Kwame Geathers, NT (6-6, 335) - Geathers ran the 40-yard dash in 5.41 and 5.43 seconds, and did the three-cone drill in 7.85 seconds. He had a 29-inch vertical jump and an 8-foot-7 broad jump. He also had 21 strength lifts. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
02/20/13 - 2013 NFL Combine, Tale of the tape: With scouts having seen most of the top prospects "on the hoof" over the fall and getting a second look at them on the "catwalk" before senior all-star games, the official measuring of heights, weight, hand and arms conducted during the Combine is only occasionally newsworthy ... except when it comes to underclassmen, who scouts often haven't seen up close yet. For the exact opposite reasons scouts are anxious to see the actual measurements for Illinois' Akeem Spence and Georgia's Kwame Geathers.
Geathers, on the other hand, was listed by the Bulldogs at 6-6, 355 pounds. Based on tape, the numbers look accurate and Geathers carries the weight surprisingly well. Should he look as impressive in person, there will be plenty of defensive coaches in Indianapolis who will be dreaming of the possibilities Geathers could bring to their lineup. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
01/11/13 - On the day Georgia landed its new defensive line coach, the Bulldogs lost their most important defensive lineman. Kwame Geathers, a 6-foot-6, 355-pound rising senior and four-game starter at noseguard, informed UGA coaches on Wednesday he intends to enter the NFL draft this year.
“That was the speculation since the bowl game, obviously, but nothing was in writing,” said Chris Wilson, who was officially announced as the Bulldogs’ defensive line coach Wednesday afternoon. “I didn’t get a chance to meet the young man but I know he was one heck of a player watching him from afar. I had yet to get a chance to sit down with him. But it’s one of those deals where you want what’s best for the young man. If him and his family feels that’s the best thing, you wish them the best of luck.”
Wilson had to deal with similar decisions while serving as Mississippi State’s defensive coordinator the past three years and while working at his alma mater, Oklahoma. The Maroon Bulldogs lost Fletcher Cox a year early to the NFL draft last year. Cox went to the Philadelphia Eagles with the 12th pick overall. “It’s part of college football nowadays,” Wilson said. “If you get kids more than three or four years is rare and especially five years now.” - Chip Towers, The Atlanta Journal Constitution
01/10/13 - Another Georgia defensive player is heading to the NFL. Junior nose tackle Kwame Geathers informed the school Wednesday that he plans to enter the draft with a year of eligibility remaining. The 6-foot-6, 355-pound Geathers follows linebackers Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree in declaring early for the pros.
This past season, Geathers played in all 14 games and finished with 40 tackles, including five for losses and a sack, along with a blocked field goal. He had eight starts and 61 tackles in his career. The Bulldogs, coming off a second straight Southeastern Conference East title, will have big holes to fill on the defensive side next season. They're also losing nose tackle John Jenkins and safeties Bacarri Rambo and Shawn Williams. - AP Sports
