NFL scouts speaking to NFL Media analyst Charles Davis "are really buzzing" about UCF redshirt senior S Clayton Geathers.
"Samford's Jaquiski Tartt is the guy most evaluators had their eyes on this week among the small-school prospects, but it was Geathers who outshined most of the defensive backs on the South squad," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Bryan Fischer. "A savvy veteran with many starts under his belt, he was able to read and react quicker than most. He also showed off the coverage skills evaluators want to see from guys that can roam around on the back end and also break to the line of scrimmage well on runs." The Golden Knight has serious NFL bloodlines. His uncles Robert Sr. and Jumpy both played in the NFL, as did cousins Kwame, Clifton and Robert Jr. Jan 24 - 6:30 PM

UCF redshirt senior S Clayton Geathers accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Geathers "plays with a special teams mentality," wrote TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline earlier this season. We think it's likely that Geathers will have to make a roster on his special teams ability, and perhaps he can showcase that aspect of his game to scouts at the Senior Bowl.

UCF redshirt senior S Clayton Geathers "plays with a special teams mentality," writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

It's a useful observation, as Geathers will likely have to make the NFL as a special-teamer at first. "Geathers entered the season stamped as a free agent prospect by scouts but has since elevated his game," Pauline wrote. "In four games this year the senior posted 35 tackles and during UCF’s conference victory over Houston last week he intercepted 1 pass while breaking up 2 more. He’s a forceful safety best in the box and plays with a special teams mentality." CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote in July that Geathers "has the athleticism to play in reverse."
