Jordan Norwood, Lydell Sargeant, and Rich Ohrnberger Scouting Reports

Just a few tidbits from the Texas vs. the Universe (or whatever it's called) college All Star game. Jordan Norwood, for some reason, is playing for the Texas team and doing pretty well.

Jordan Norwood (WR-Penn State) - Norwood missed Monday’s practice because he was participating in a skill competition soon to be aired on ESPN, but he showed up Tuesday in mid-season form. His game was indistinguishable from teammate Deon Butler’s at the Shrine Game practices on the whole. Norwood flashed terrific natural quicks and speed, efficient, tight breaks in his routes, and exceptional body control. Norwood sinks his hips low on comebacks, and also uses head and shoulder fakes to create extra separation in his routes. He also gets his head around to locate the ball in flight very quickly and makes most everything look easy. Like Butler, he plays at a high speed, but still completely under control. Most of the defensive backs that tried to cover him were left befuddled, and he capped off the goal line drill with a one-handed, both-feet-in catch in the end zone that no defensive back on earth could have defensed. Norwood is in a class of his own among the WRs in El Paso.

Meanwhile, Rich Ohrnberger, who is playing for the Nation team, is doing ok too.

Rich Ohrnberger(OL-Penn State) - Ohrnberger gave max effort on every snap, just like he did yesterday, and he showed especially good ankle flex to absorb the pass rush. He’s not a high upside prospect, but guys like Ohrnberger hang around the league for a long time.

That was from the day two practice. This was day one.

Rich Ohrnberger(OL-Penn State) - Ohrnberger handled himself very well in the pit, easily dismissing Demonte Bolden and showing good fight, strength, and a strong base throughout.

And then there is this about cornerback Lydell Sargeant.

Lydell Sargeant (CB-Penn State) -  Sargeant was very aggressive, physically challenging the wide receivers and making a good bid to break up most every pass thrown in his direction. Sargeant is anything but tentative when the ball is in the air.

And they think that's good, just wait until they see him sit back like a tree in Cover-3 defense. He's really at his best when the wide receiver is given an eight yard cushion to work with. Excuse me while I go slam my head in a door somewhere.
