you seem to be under the impression that the NFL combine actually measures someone's athleticism


That's the entire point of the NFL Combine - to quantify the athletism of the top prospects on an even playing field.

...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.

Could Norman go the way of Barner. He would have decent trade value.


A guy who can't get a spot in the lineup on a team with a weak secondary? We were just lucky that Barner's old college coach took an NFL gig. Other than that, he would've had zero trade value as well.

It'll be a great haul for sure. Just hoping KB indeed works out and everyone stays healthy. Now if we can just add a hog molly onto that list on the OL. Maybe next year.
