Notes:

  • Good acceleration
  • Not afraid to catch the ball over the middle
  • Good hands
  • Solid blocker
  • Some question his love of the game, game film proves them wrong, not afraid to hit someone
  • Would have benefited by going to a team with a better passing program
  • Had a true freshman as his quarterback in 2016
  • Lacked production his last year, most people blame the offensive scheme, not Howard
  • Might have lit up the scoreboard in the Big 12 where defense is optional and gunslingers rule the town
  • OJ Howard will benefit by going later in the draft to a team that can exploit his abilities
  • Howard’s NFL career could be better than his career with the Alabama Crimson Tide
