He reminds me of a Rich man's Ben Obomanu. He looks to be average to good at everything except run blocking, where he's great.

I'm with you. It wouldn't surprise me if Norwood had a bigger impact this year as a WR than PRich


It would me.

I'd add that Norwood has better leaping/high-pointing ability than Obo ever displayed.

Yes, he attacks the ball much better. Has more of a knack for the spectacular catch as well (than Obo). Loved his sideline dive vs Tennessee

The only thing PRich brings to this team right now is a guy who can take the top off a team. That's nothing to down play, he's just not the polished player Baldwin is from the slot or outside, he's not the gamebreaker Percy is on bubble screens or short routes, and he's not as good at high pointing the ball as Kearse, Rice, or even Norwood are. His role here is limited until he either surpasses Baldwin or Baldwin leaves

Which also happens to be an unique attribute on this team

This. I'm also not sure how you can say he's a lesser high pointing receiver than the guys you mentioned. He has a better vertical and has just as strong of hands as anyone you named. And I disagree with the assertion that he's a lesser player than Baldwin. His speed is much better, he's just as good of a route runner if not better considering how smooth he is in his breaks, and he has just as good of hands with a better knack for the circus catch.

He may not be better than the guys you named in that specific facet (and even then I'd completely disagree, but what makes him different is that he is above average in all of those facets.

Saw a post somewhere about Willson getting snaps in the slot. Anyone else think this means he's the "big body" wide-out we all think PC wants? Not many targets last year, but he was open & caught the ball. Route running may not be as critical if he becomes the safety valve &/or red zone primary. Just teach him to work back when RW's running for his life.

I wouldn't have listed it if it wasn't.

That's not going to be something that gets him consistent targets though. That's the point. Calling him a better route runner than Baldwin, right now, is ludicrous

Who really get's consistent targets though? We're not really that type of offense IMO. We have a very situational offense and run with different units based on game circumstance. Only players like Baldwin and Harvin are really guaranteed to be on the majority of snaps every drive. I think the main reason we were so interested in drafting Richardson is because he'll give us a look we've never had.

That's a fair point. I'm not saying I'm not excited or interested to see what Richardson can do. My initial point was just that I think Norwood accounts for more production this year

It's a forgone conclusion that Baldwin is the best route runner on the team and maybe the division after Fitzgerald (which is really just veteran savvy). He just gets open.

I don't think it's unfair to think Norwood will produce more, I'm certainly not going to disagree. I have no idea what kind of roles these player will have until after July. Should be a fun training camp as always.
