...because combine results is always an indicator of how a person plays on the field.
I said nothing about his play, simply talking about pure athletic ability here. He's a below average athlete for an NFL CB. Pure and simple. When you're below average in all categories of the Combine, it's safe to say you're a below average pure athlete.
Norman being this supreme physical talent is one of the biggest Panthers myths there is. Just about every single workout of his at the Combine was below average for an NFL CB. He was the top CB performer in broad jump for his class, but that was because the entire class was weak in that drill compared to the norm. He would've been tied for 9th in broad jump in this past CB class.
The numbers don't lie. Josh Norman is a below average athlete for an NFL CB.
