Falcons | Norwood favored to land the No. 3 RB job; may not see much action

George Henry, writing for the Sporting News, reports Atlanta Falcons rookie RB Jerious Norwood is heavily favored to beat out RB DeAndra Cobb for the No. 3 job behind RBs Warrick Dunn and T.J. Duckett, but considering that FB Justin Griffith also works at running back, Norwood probably won't take many snaps this year. Norwood has great speed, particularly in the open field, but he will soon learn that quickness doesn't mean much if you're not proven between the tackles like Dunn, Duckett and Griffith. Unless Dunn or Duckett is injured, Norwood will see little game action at running back.
