In 2016, Josh Norman signed a five-year, $75 million contract with the Washington Redskins.

At the time, it made him the highest paid cornerback in NFL history.

Not bad for a dude who had zero Division I offers coming out of high school.

In 2008, Norman walked on at Coastal Carolina.

There, he blossomed into an FCS All-American.

The Carolina Panthers selected him in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, and Norman's been balling ever since.

He was a first-team All-Pro and a Pro Bowl selection in 2015.
