Browns Sign 6th Round Pick
Clifton Geathers

Posted Jun 28, 2010


Defensive lineman Clifton Geathers is the first Browns draft pick to come to an agreement.

 

The Browns announced earlier today that they had signed their first draft pick, sixth-rounder Clifton Geathers, to a multi-year deal. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Geathers is a high-upside defensive lineman chosen late in the draft following three years at the University of South Carolina. What he brings to the Browns foremost is a promising body frame at 6'7", 300 pounds. Despite being an imposing physical specimen, Geathers still needs a great deal of work to be ready to play at the NFL level after leaving school a year early. During camps so far, Geathers has shown occasional flashes alongside the frequent reminders that he still has a ways to go.

Still, the signing is a positive news item for the Browns, who had yet to sign a draft pick. Rookies are scheduled to arrive at the team's training camp on July 23rd.
