“His arrow is up.”

I think you guys know me well enough by now to realize I don’t put much stock in spring football pronouncements, but I’m coming around to the idea that in the case of Kwame Geathers there be some fire along with that smoke we’ve been smelling.

Geathers has progressed enough this spring that Coach Grantham is contemplating the possibility of playing Geathers and John Jenkins together.

“We play with three (on the defensive line). There’s nothing etched in stone that those guys have to be at nose,” Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham said. “We’ll see how it goes. We’ve got a couple different packages.”

So the 340-pound Geathers or 361-pound Jenkins could play end.

“There ain’t a rule against it, is there?” Grantham said, smiling.

Even Rodney Garner is finding nice things to say about Geathers’ development.

… Defensive line coach Rodney Garner said Geathers has improved his use of hands in the trenches, and is “playing stouter.” The competition with Jenkins may have spurred Geathers, but Garner thinks a natural progression was in order.

Needless to say, if true, this is huge.  Grantham’s defense last season sorely lacked a consistent presence in the middle of the line.  If that’s there now, the linebacking corps just got a whole lot better.  If they can get a handle on the safety play, we may have something to get excited about.

UPDATE:  Geathers named defensive MVP in Georgia’s spring football awards.

This is why Al Gore invented the Internets.

There’s no way I would have spent the time putting something like this together, but Gentry Estes has a detailed look at match-ups to watch at tomorrow’s G-Day game, if you’re interested.

One roster update worth noting is that Alec Ogletree has moved to the Red team.
