It's pretty simple--Norman got outplayed by Thomas and Dockery. Norman has a higher ceiling, but needs to improve.

Norman is athletic....might lack the speed and quickness to play CB though. Something to watch.

Might also be a young guy who needs to study more. Don't forget we have defenders who were called out this year on that. He might simply not understand what teams were doing to him being such a cocky young guy. Takes more than talent when teams start drawing up gameplans

I don't think outplayed has anything to do with it

I think 2 things

Somebody mentioned his lack of knowledge on the plays being called which may be the reason he played off sometimes and then bumped other players (which he has done, you can back and watch the games)

Simply giving others a chance

I personally think he was one of the defenders called out in regard to their work habits.

My football IQ isn't very high....but even I could call the downs and plays when opponents where going to hit slants on Norman. Too easy. Don't think it was a talent issue.

Young kid. Needs to learn what opponents are trying to do in certain spots
