Overview:

Norton finished his career at Miami(Fla.), where he played in 36 career games, had 84 tackles, 18.0 for loss, and 5.0 sacks. He also had 1 pass breakup, 1 forced fumble, and 1 fumble recovered. He has great size, he is a solid tackler, a hard hitter, and a run stuffer. He is also a relentless defender, and a ferocious defender. He is a defensive play maker, and a difference maker on defense. On the other hand, he does not have the best speed, but that does not hurt his game, and he is not known as a big sack guy. With that said, I see Norton being a late day 2, to early day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
