Falcons will work out SC’s Norwood
Pete Iacobelli of the Associated Press writes that South Carolina linebacker Eric Norwood has an upcoming visit scheduled with the Atlanta Falcons.
Norwood worked out today at South Carolina’s pro day. He stood on his 40 time from last month’s Combine, where he ran a 4.71. He did go through positional drills and did bench press (21 reps). According to TFY Draft Insider, he didn’t impress during positional drills.
Norwood, measures in at 6’1″ 241 pounds is one of the top outside linebacker prospects in this year’s draft. He is a former convert from defensive end, and showed his pass rush ability the past two seasons with 16 combined sacks. He ranks fourth among outside linebacker prospects by both ESPN’s Mel Kiper and Scott Wright of Draft Countdown.com.
