UCF safety Clayton Geathers will have the chance to perform in front of top NFL scouts and executives after accepting an invitation to the 2015 Senior Bowl.

Geathers, a four-year starter, is one of 86 players to accept the invitation. The Senior Bowl is annually coached by two NFL coaching staffs. In 2014, the Jaguars staff coached one team and the Falcons staff coached the other.

The senior captain joins ECU's Shane Carden and Justin Hardy, along with Houston's Joey Mbu as the only American Athletic Conference representatives.

Geathers is second on the team in tackles with 83, and also has a forced fumble and an interception.
