    ****2014 Crown Jewel Countdown: #23 - DT, Johnny Dwight****



    Scouting Report
    He is by far the smallest defensive lineman we took in this class, but he DOES have the frame to add bulk (as he displayed by gaining 28 lbs during his senior season).But the defensive line is stacked in front of him, so right this way Mr. Dwight













    BigEasyTider's Take
    Intriguing, versatile kid here. He's listed as 6'2, but certainly looks a lot longer on his tape, and plays across the defensive line. He will play all over the DL board in Tuscaloosa, and has the size to play end as well as the combo end-tackle position. Almost certainly in for a redshirt season in 2014, but getting him qualified academically was a big development.




    runtheoption22's Take
    Dwight has a chance to be a special DL. Good motor and speed and will probably play all over the line. LSU and some others tried to sway him late in the game.




    WMack4Bama's Take
    Dwight is very, very good against the run and has shown the ability to consistently shed blocks and penetration the backfired vs.the run. His pass rushing skills, however, could use a little work. He's physical enough to play inside (although he definitely needs to add some bulk) and he's athletic enough to play the end and set the edge.
    In terms of size,he reminds me a lot of Wallace Gilberry when he first got to campus. In terms of his ability, based on what I've seen, I'd say a notch or two below Lorenzo Washington. My guess is that Dwight is able to contribute in rotation duty and add some tenacity to the defensive line after he is redshirted this season.

    We have really had some tremendous talent come through here by way of Georgia, and I really hope that tradition continues!
