It looked to me like Crawford extended his left arm out in front of the defender and gripped his chest. It may not have been egregious but it's going to get called more often than not.

Crawford's effort as a downfield blocker don't go unnoticed by the coaches and earned him pt last year as a frosh. It's a tough call but I'd rather see him not make that reach from behind.

Even if he did, inside grabbing, particularly on the number, is rarely called holding unless you are pulling the jersey hard or tackling the guy.  What gets called is when your hands are outside.

This was not a hold at all, and the better angles showed this. It literally did nothing to affect the DB who would get stiff armed to the ground just seconds after. I think this is what caused the ref to throw the flag. That, and his second arm touching the DBs back, which may have looked like a bear hug.
