I can see him being used like Thomas Davis was his first year, in a kind of Joker role.

As a Gamecock fan I love this pick. Norwood was a force his entire time in college. You never heard anything bad about the guy off the field. He is extremely athletic and has good speed.

He and Captain are good friends so I am happy that they are back together on the same team again.

The worst thing you could probably find is the dude probably didn't do his homework in high-school.... I believe he said in his panther.com interview that he graduated with like a 1.8!! Lol... that's like a D+..... In all fairness to him, academics we not an issue at USC and he did graduate early.

As long as we dont line him up as a safety like we did Davis his first year. The guy reminds me of Davis for some reason. He is basically the same size. he ran a 4.67 and Davis ran a 4.65. The problem seems to be coverage which with our great linebacker coaches can be fixed if the kid is willing to learn. Anyone know what position we have him for? WLB or SLB?

He is nothing like Davis.. Davis was a tweener between Safety and LB.. and Norwood is a tweener between DE and LB..

There is no way he is fast as davis. Not even close. Dan Connor ran a faster 40 than Beason. 40 times aren't really solid especially when they are from 2005.

He would be horrible on the weakside especially in meek's system. He wants speedy guys who run around blocks, not beefy dudes that bust through blocks.

He'll be a strong side LB and pass rush specialist. I can see him lining up on the outside shoulder of offensive tackles in certain situations.

I really hope they ask him to bulk up and play DE. I think he would be awesome in Meeks D at DE but only average at SLB. We still need to bring in a few SLB prospects IMO. I would look into it but why bother. No one we speculate about almost every becomes a Panther.

If he comes to camp at 250, look for him to traded to a 3-4 team. Same with Pike.

He was a fallback pick after Nawlins moved right in front of us to draft DT Al Woods.

I like the pick however. Same with Pike. Both could be chips for picks next year.

I can tell you with 100% certainty, we did not target Cam Thomas or Al Woods.. or any other DT in this draft.

You have inside info? I wish I had known, I would have felt much better thinking that Nawlins didn't screw us over. Nawlins was fooled also I suppose.

Feelin a bit better
