Scouting Report
Norwood didn't put up big numbers at Alabama - his 38 receptions, 568 yards and seven touchdowns in 2013 were career highs - but he could prove to be an excellent value pick in the middle rounds. The two-time national champion gets open using head fakes and quick moves to the sideline, and established himself as a reliable emergency receiving option when plays broke down. Norwood is a strong, sharp route runner and dependable pass catcher with good hands who stays with the ball. His draft stock rose with his performance at the Senior Bowl, as he caught a 24-yard touchdown pass and earned Most Outstanding Player honors for the South team. Considered a player with strong character, Norwood earned a Master's degree last year. Polished and mature, he appears to have the mindset to become a solid pro and accept whatever role he earns. For Norwood, that may be as a dependable third option on passing plays, as his ability and determination to get open could prove to be a big asset in the NFL just as it was in college. Norwood will have some issues to overcome - he'll need to add some strength and doesn't possess elite speed - but he's well-rounded. Probably underused at Alabama, he could thrive in the pass-heavy NFL. His lack of flash and stats may result in him waiting a little while to hear his name called in the draft, but he seems certain to get a shot in the pros.
