Senior Bowl Notes
Norwood accepted an invitation to play in the 2014 Senior Bowl in Mobile.
The former Alabama star really struggled early in practice against CB in a press coverage drill. He didn’t feel comfortable getting off the jam at all. I worried that he would truly struggle badly in one-on-one’s but when the DBs backed off, he got open easily, caught the ball cleanly and was solid the rest of practice. The lights went on and he performed.
Again on Tuesday, Norwood looked good in competitive aspects of the practice. Go 1-on-1 with a corner and he lights it up. He went deep on Auburn CB Chris Davis, high pointed the throw from the QB and came down with a tremendous catch. He continues to shine in those situations and solid in team drills.
