I wonder if that 6-1 is really 6-0 or 5-11.75?  Not that it matters in
Norwood's case as he plays much bigger.  Hard to believe the guy was actually
a DE his first 2 years at USC at that size.  A good one, too.

> I think we will like him, 6-1 but 252 lbs, so he's an inch shorter then
Channing Crowder and weighs about the same. I know he's an OLB and you like em
a bit taller but I don't think he would be considered a "small" LB.
