Georgia Bulldogs linebacker Kwame Geathers is undecided about whether or not to declare for the NFL draft, reports the Macon Telegraph. Geathers, a fourth-year junior, was could have gone pro at the end of the 2011 season, but he elected to return to the team. He says he is undecided but expects to make up his mind soon, "If not this weekend, then sometime next week, or maybe after the bowl game."

Geathers comes from a football family, and two of his brothers declared early and were picked in the later rounds. His brother Robert was a fourth-round pick in 2004 and his brother Clinton went in the sixth round of the 2010 draft. Kwame Geathers currently projects as a second or third-round pick, according to ESPN's Mel Kiper.

Geathers has 37 tackles on the season, 15 of them for a loss, and one sack. He also has six quarterback hurries and a blocked kick. At 6'6 and 355 pounds, his size is one of his biggest assets.
