My issue with Howard is the fact that he never really was a true focal point of Bama's offense. Picking a player at 6 on the offensive side of the ball , I want someone who has proven over and over again to be the go to guy . Howard has the measureables but we've learned before so does virtually every other player in the NFL.
Its easy to be a star on a college all star team (Bama) where teamwise you can outclass most opponents even in the very tough SEC. I'm not sure Howard can go to a team where he has to be the star , like the Browns ,Jets etc.... If I was the Jets I'd look to take Njoku in rd2 or either Adam Shaheen or Jordan Legett in later rounds I think they are safer picks given where we'd need to take Howard.
