At 6'6", 355lbs, Kwame Geathers is a mammoth of a nose-tackle. He was extremely effective during his three seasons in Athens. Geathers was a two-year starter, including on last year's top-rated Bulldog defense, and also earned SEC Coaches All-SEC Freshman Team honors in his first season. He is a great space eater in the middle of the line, which allows him to be an effective run-stopper. His lineage also helps, as his brother Robert plays for the Bengals and his brother Clifton plays for the Eagles.
Geathers' size makes him a valuable asset to the Charger's 3-4 scheme. He can be inserted into the lineup and immediately eat space and allow the linebackers to roam free and the pass-rushers to have one-on-one matchups. The competition is not too strong as well. Cam Thomas and Byron Jerideau are the only other nose-tackles currently on the roster. Each have little to no experience and are not as talented as Geathers. This should allow Geathers to win the starting job early in the season and wreak havoc on interior lineman in the AFC West.
