Josh Norman has big day in Panthers camp

Carolina Panthers 5th-round pick Josh Norman has been fairly quiet early this preseason, but he made sure everyone took notice of his performance on Tuesday afternoon. According to the Panthers official twitter feed, Norman picked off four passes, including three in a half-hour span.

While practice stats are even less relevant than preseason numbers, at worst Norman caught the attention of the media and fans. He’s in the midst of a tough battle for the nickel corner job and Tuesday’s performance potentially could give him a slight edge over his closest competitors, R.J. Stanford, Darius Butler and Brandon Hogan.

But this day will quickly be forgotten if he doesn’t follow it up with a solid showing in actual game action when the Panthers take on the Dolphins on Friday night.
