Draft Zone Spotlight: Dontavais Johnson, DB, Coastal Carolina
Dontavais spent two seasons at Hofstra, before transferring for the 2010 season after Hofstra dropped its football program. When he arrived at Coastal Carolina, he was able to sit behind NFL rookie Josh Norman in the secondary and work hard every day. After a solid senior season where he finished with 48 tackles, 4 interceptions, 6 pass break ups, and a forced fumble. Johnson stands and 5’10 and is fearless. It helps that he went up against Matt Hazel the star wide receiver on every play as well. I expect Johnson will be in a NFL camp this preseason, keep an eye on the hard working young man.
