Josh Norman..

Reading the tea leaves... He could be the #1 with Florence across from him at #2. Munny and Moore rotating at Nickel with Thomas and Dockery rotating in as needed. 6 active CBs and the most ideal 2 deep or is it just totally off?

A great front can make a decent CB look great. The pressure could play right into Normans natural skill set, which is finding the ball on his side of the field.

If Norman can level his game and begin to play with both discipline and confidence maybe we will see some of that promise in camps last year on Sunday. Call me an optimist but I still have hope for his prospects and truly believe he should've learned a lot from all of his experiences last year (i.e the embarrassment of being benched after he ran his mouth all year)

Heres hoping we have a legit top corner on the roster next year.

I think Thomas is currently the best CB on the roster right now...imo

I agree, I like JT's game. I personally think Florence won't make it half way thru the season, and our starters will be JT and Norman with Captain at the nickel.

It isn't like our front didnt provide arguably the best pressure on QBs in the NFL last season....

And QBs competed a very high percentage with that. The way to best pressure is quick throws. Norman simply needs to get better....

And what do you base that opinion on?

it's definitely up for debate. info from another thread...

 

eh...

thomas - 530 snaps, thrown at 51x for 424 yards (13.3 ypc), allowed 157 yac, qbs had 102.1 rating when throwing at him.

norman - 788 snaps, thrown at 80x for 670 yards (12.4 ypc), allowed 121 yac, qbs had 96.4 rating when throwing at him.

He needs to press and not give 7 - 10 yard cushions to top WR's.

 

However, if he was getting beat over the top everyone would be whining about that.

Good argument.

I'm anxious to see how the defense looks as a whole.

I think Keuchly will be scary, scary good with Star in front.

Norman showed some good things last year, the reason he played off so much had a lot to do with confidence in my opinion. Not wanting to get beat deep, i think his issues are fixable and the defensive line will only help.

I think it actually allows us to run the zone blitz scheme they have wanted too do for a while. While we have a dominate front four it will make it that much more confusing adding in blitzes. Also we have a good group of ballhawk CBS that will make turnovers. Will we get burned in the secondary? Sure but we will also cause many turnovers.
