Overview

The least known of the Penn State trio of receivers, Norwood is a State College guy as his father coaches the Nittany Lions secondary. He caught at least 32 balls in each of his four seasons as a part-time starter, but saved his best for his senior year. He garnered honorable mention All-Big Ten honors with 41 catches for 637 yards and six scores. Projects as a complementary receiver, may need to bide his time to prove himself at the next level. Had an arm span of 30 3/4 inches and a hand span of 8 5/8 inches at the combine.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Adequate height and quickness for a slot receiver. Concentration good enough to adjust to high or low balls. Best on crossing and underneath routes from the slot, is willing to go over the middle or up high to make the catch despite his slight frame. Sets up the corner for the skinny post when outside. Negatives: Relies on his quickness and agility to create separation and may never become a classic deep threat. Ball security is a concern due to his lack of size. At best a number three NFL receiver. Lacks strength to get off the jam or block downfield. Could add value as a punt or kick returner if given the chance.
