|National Football League Draft Profile - Clifton Geathers |
|Selection||17 (186 overall)|
|School||South Carolina |
|High School||Carvers Bay (Georgetown, South Carolina)|
|Suspended for the 2009 season opener due to an arrest that summer outside a nightclub, yet still finished with 41 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks during his junior campaign...Geathers, who has quality bloodlines that include a brother currently with the Cincinnati Bengals and both a father and uncle who both played professionally, started just one game in his career at South Carolina, but still showed enough promise to gain significant recognition...Possesses great speed and quickness at the start of plays forsomeone his size, although he tends to fade when in pursuit of the action...Geathers could stand another year of experience at the college level where he could get the attention to detail he needs, but it won't happen now. |
