Overview:

Howard has good size, and good speed. He was a pure ball hawk at Baylor, and is experienced. He is a solid cover cornerback, and a good tackler. On the other hand, he has trouble with taller receivers, and he gets lost in coverage at times. With that being said, I expect Howard to be a day 2 pick.
