NFL Draft 2013 Seahawks sleepers: DT Kwame Geathers, Georgia

The "Seahawks Sleepers" series is a flurry of quick scouting reports on some players that I've identified as potential targets for Seattle. My goal with this series is to highlight a few players that John Schneider, Pete Carroll and their scouting team might be interested in, and to give a brief synopsis as to why. For the most part, I'm high on the guys that I'll be pointing out - and I'll be monitoring them during the Draft and in Rookie Free Agency. Also, for the most part, these are mid- to later-round prospects, because let's be honest, you're probably sick of reading about first- and second-round type guys.

DT Kwame Geathers, Georgia - 6'5, 343

Obviously, Geathers is an enormous man. In the video above, you see how well he played against the elite Alabama offensive line, and pretty consistently pushed Barrett Jones back into the pocket and disrupted what the Tide were trying to do. Geathers, despite being 6'5, plays with good pad level and anchors well. He keeps his eyes in the backfield while two-gapping, shedding blockers to make the tackle. I don't know if the Seahawks will like him - at 343 he might be too heavy and too slow for what they want to do, but honestly Geathers intrigues me. He carries the 343 well - he's proportioned and not just a big fat guy, in other words, and his length is unbelievable with 35 1/4" arms. He's got the Brandon Mebane prototype ba-dunk-a-dunk you like to see in a nose tackle.

If Seattle is looking for a tough, strong NT to back up Brandon Mebane, if Geathers is still around in the 5th or 6th rounds, he might be worth a shot.

Why Seattle?

Length, pure and simple. 6'5 with 35"+ arms, two-gapping experience with a solid anchor. He's a 3-4 type NT and that's why Seattle might be interested in him, weirdos that they are.
