Player Scouting Report
Players Scouting Reviewer :
Position :Tight End [TE]
Has good speed for a tight end and can stretch the field
Howard is fairly consistent and rarely has lapses in focus
Routes are good but they need some work for NFL competition
Howard has functional playing strength
Functional but nothing more
Run After Catch
Big Play Ability
Shows the ability to turn regular receptions into big plays.
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.
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.
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.
