Scouting the SEC: Vanderbilt 

The Commodores continue to try and build a competitive program against all odds. While strides are being made the program is limited by the type of individuals they can recruit and as a result, Vandy has only marginal results in the NFL draft.  

Offensive lineman Justin Geisinger is one of the better Commodore prospects from this side of the ball in a long while.  Blocking with a wide base, Geisinger is a big bodied lineman who sets quickly in pass protection and effectively uses angles to keep opponents from the play.  Anchoring at the point, he displays good hand punch, patience as well as strength.  Protecting the blind side eye Geisinger is really not quick footed or lineman who shows the ability to shuffle laterally.  Also not explosive into run blocks, he lacks adjustment and is best in a small area.  And while powerful in the weight room, on tape Geisinger looks more like a finesse blocker than mauler.  A big senior season is critical if Geisinger is to become a middle round choice the next April.

Defensively, Vanderbilt has a trio of underclassmen to keep an eye on. End Jovan Haye is an athletic defender who plays with excellent forward lean and leverage.  Displaying the ability to redirect or slide off blocks laterally, he chases to get involved in the action and combines both physical and mental skills to make positive plays.   Possessing a tall slender build, he does have difficulty getting off blocks once engaged at the point of attack yet possesses growth potential and should be a top prospect moving into 2006.  Linebacker Moses Osemwegie and cornerback Dominique Morris are two more good looking NFL-prospect.
