Strong Points

Two-year starter at left tackle. Natural size and length. Effective at the MAC level as a pass rusher and run blocker. Quick set in pass protection. Flashes getting movement with run blocks.

Weak Points

He is not a natural bender. Gets tall too often. At times he is able to stop wide speed but can't recover quickly versus a counter move to the inside. Has a lean upper body and needs to add strength and bulk.

The Way We See It

A fifth-year senior and a two-year starter at left tackle. Norton is tall with adequate length for his height. He has a lean build for a tall guy and needs to add bulk and strength especially in his upper body. He has some tightness in his knees and ankles and has a tendency to play tall. Because of his size, he can be effective, but he has a long ways to go. Needs to get stronger and improve his lateral agility. Won't be able to play left tackle and will have to settle in on the right side. Good candidate for the practice squad as a rookie.
