Excellent athlete with good size and speed; Howard uses his body to shield the ball from defenders and has the athletic skills to gain yardage after the catch; Consistent in his route running and fundamentals; Has deep speed and good play making instincts.
Weaknesses
Could be a dominating blocker but isn't. His routes are good, not great, and he'll need to improve there. Can be slow to react and adjust.
Overall Analysis
Howard is an extremely talented tight end with a very high upside. He has the ability to impact the passing game at all levels of the field and will be the type of tight end that defenses have to account for. He still needs some polish as he relies too much on his natural athleticism but Howard has the ability to play immediately and the potential to be a long term Pro Bowl caliber player.
