Seattle Seahawks add dynamic wide receiver out of Alabama in fourth round

Kevin Norwood will be the newest wide out option in Seattle. With their latest pick in the fourth round, the six-foot-two, 198-pound receiver from Alabama, Norwood will be ready to go as the best route runner taken in day three. His 4.48 forty and 4.32 shuttle are both respectable at this point as well. Norwood’s worked in a pro style offense with a quarterback in A.J. McCarron...

…WR Kevin Norwood from Alabama.  Once again, Schneider appears to have snagged a potential diamond on day three.  Norwood is 6’2″ and has respectable speed (~4.44 seconds in the forty), but more importantly he has a reputation as a clutch receiver with great hands and impeccable route-running.  The guy has a brain on him, too — he didn’t just finish his bachelor’s...

NFL Draft: Jets’ Best Options for Day Three

‘Best’ is subjective, but I’ll try my ‘best’ to be objective. The Jets enter Day Three, having filled positions of need… …but GM John Idzik didn’t mortgage the future of his team to just win-now. The New York Jets clearly stuck their board on Day Two, selecting TE Jace Amaro and CB Dexter McDougle. Amaro provides the Jets with a little ‘edginess’ on offense, while...

2014 NFL Draft: Ranking the Top Wide Receivers

This is a list of the top wide receivers available on the 2014 board.  This is not a prediction of where each player will be drafted, it's how each player grades out.  For example, Kevin Norwood of Alabama receives a late second to early third round grade, but he likely won't be drafted quite that high.  There are 30 players I consider 4th round or better type prospects...

Senior Bowl Standouts From A Pats Perspective

The Reese’s Senior Bowl happened in Mobile, Alabama on Saturday. Yes, Reese’s: because nothing says “elite college football” like a couple of guilt-inducing peanut butter cups in a non-biodegradable wrapper. The South team beat the North team, 20-10, on a day where offenses looked out of synch due to strong D and apparent lack of practice. Below, some notable players in whom...

Just like the North Roster, I decided to focus on ten prospects that have the most to prove this week.
