Throughout spring the two main question areas for the 2019 Georgia Tech football are the offensive and defensive lines. After losing, not only a great person, but a fantastic player in Brandon Adams, the defensive line questions have grown. While the coaching staff searches for pieces to build the defensive line, there is one player taking advantage of the “position flexibility” that has been preached by the coaching staff all spring.
Jahaziel Lee has seemed to make the most of getting reps on the defensive side of the ball. Since Lee got on campus, he has pretty much been a plug and play tackle for the offense, he even got some time at center last season. With the change in scheme, his mean streak, and the chip he plays with, Lee seems to be better suited on the defensive line more than the offensive line.
He played both in high school. He showed us some of his defensive skills running with the gold team defense in the spring game. In the time he got, he managed to get a couple sacks, and also force a fumble on a scramble from James Graham. Lee will be a player to watch as the team heads into summer workouts, then into fall camp. He looked like a veteran defensive lineman out there on Friday and he will only get better with more reps there. Lee could be one of the surprise position flips that actually ends up sticking with the opposite side of the ball from where he started spring.
