Two-year starter named First Team All-MAC for both his junior and senior seasons. Took over at left tackle for the final three games of his sophomore season and remained on the blind side for the remainder of his Rockets career.
Massive lineman that’s hit his stride the past two seasons. Large, stays square and engulfs defenders at the point of attack. Strong, gets his hands into opponents and easily controls them. Sets with a wide base, works to bend his knees and shows great power. Explosive at the point, keeps his head on a swivel and plays with a nasty attitude.
Struggles to adjust and shows stiffness in his game. Lacks footwork off the edge and lacks blocking range. Heavy footed, not quick to the second level or effective blocking in motion.
Norton has terrific size, growth potential and enough ability to eventually develop into a right tackle for Sunday football.
