BIOGRAPHY: Former defensive lineman who started the past four years at both left and right tackle.
POSITIVES: Well-built offensive lineman who displays skill in pass protection. Patient, quickly sets off the snap, and jolts opponents with good hand-punch. Stays square, displays above-average lateral range, and shows the ability to slide laterally. Makes good use of angles, works well with teammates, and attacks assignments.
NEGATIVES: Struggles in motion and out on the second level. Marginally strong in run-blocking and rarely finishes. Lacks adjustment and not light on his feet.
ANALYSIS: Norden is a hard-working lineman who uses all his assets to their maximum. He offers good size and growth potential, yet he is a marginal athlete who could have difficulty making it as a backup at the next level.
