Fear the beard folks. Three nights away and finally the real thing will be here. The 2012 NFL Draft is almost here and everyone is getting anxious for the big event on Thursday. Nick Eatman of the mothership reported The Cowboys did make a move on Friday re-signing defensive end Clifton Geathers. The move isn't really a shocker because Geathers is a player the Cowboys obviously like. They signed him off waivers back in 2010 when the Seahawks released him. Geathers intrigues the Cowboys front office for a couple of reasons. He has size at 6'7, and 320 pounds. His combine performance back in 2010 does show he has some athletic ability for a man of his stature. He ran a 4.98 40 yard dash, had a 36 inch vertical jump and a 7.69 three-cone drill. His NFL.com combine profile is an interesting read. Geathers has great size and above average strength for the defensive line position. He is better defending the run than the pass when he plays with good pad level. Geathers is inconsistent keeping good knee bend and his pad level down to maintain leverage on blockers. He can generate power once he gets going but he isn’t explosive off the line of scrimmage. Geathers needs lots of work developing his hand use and pass rush package. His technique is lacking to separate and shed. He only flashes as a playmaker and is an inconsistent reactor. Geathers is somewhat of a project and will need time to develop. There are some character concerns that need to be checked out.
