FINAL WORD: Crawford is one of several young defensive tackles at Georgia right now who could push for early playing time. Ray Gant, Marquis Elmore and Dale Dixson have only a little time remaining at Georgia, but Crawford, like the rest of the young interior linemen at Georgia, have the chance to play early and often for Georgia. Considering his athletic ability and that he enrolled early, Crawford has a very good chance of playing in 2006, but he'll be in a heated competition to beat out the other young linemen in Athens.
