Why do we need Norris? We have Isaac Sopoaga.
And Boone and the possibility of Rachal at RG and putting Snyder back there. All are just as nimble as Norris
Miller is just the start of this offense, obviously this year isn't over but knowing Harbaughs Stanford roots, I can see us keeping 4 TE's possibly even more depending on development. Look at Jimmy Graham, Finley, etc. Harbaugh already identified the new breed of athlete while coaching at the college ranks and exploited it, and will bring it to the pro level.
Just think you got your solid 3-4 WR's and an additional one that wont dress for sundays, then you have VD, DW, Everyman-type like Byham, a versatile FB like Miller, and then another TE more in a receiver mold like a Graham or Finley. How does a defense account for that? They could line up with 3 TE sets and still be just as dangerous as a 3 WR set with the additional threat to run. 6'5 240 pound athletes that are still fluid enough to get open in space are the new power offense of the future... count it! As defenses sacrifice size for speed to cover the new wave of spread offenses, Harbaugh's stanford-like NFL offense will exploit that without hurting the running game.
